Profile

I joined the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group because it is everything that I feel a healthcare delivery system should be - multiple specialties collaborating together to take better care of the total patient.  Kaiser Permanente is well known to have one of the best electronic medical records, which allows multiple specialties to document in one place.  This helps physicians provide better care to their patients by keeping them from repeating unnecessary tests and helping each other follow up on results, as well as making sure that all preventative care testing is done in a timely fashion.  Also, we have each patient’s medical history documented and available at the push of a button.

My interest in medicine began when I was in high school and had a love and talent for science, and I wanted to find a career that involved science but also working with people and helping them improve their lives.

I like being a physician because I have the opportunity to work with women. I truly believe that by keeping a woman healthy you keep a whole family healthy.  In many families and cultures, it is the woman who takes on the task of making sure everyone in the family is eating well, getting exercise, eliminating unhealthy behaviors like smoking and poor eating habits, and keeping their doctor’s appointments.  When a doctor gives a woman medical advice, she will often take it to her family and friends who, in turn, take it to their family and friends. Women are doctor’s best source of community outreach and education.

It is important that my patients know that my philosophy of care is that the best way to care for patients is by listening to what they have to say.  Most physicians learn in medical school that by simply taking a patient’s history, you can figure out what is wrong with them and what will work best for them to help make them better.

I have a strong interest in the gynecological care of adolescent patients, but I also enjoy high-risk obstetrics and minimally invasive surgery

I look forward to partnering with you on improving the health of women in our community.  I know that by doing that, eventually the whole community with benefit and their health will improve as well.

Dr. Lawrence is an excellent doctor. I was determined to find the right doctor to help guide me through my pregnancy and delivery and couldn't be happier to have found her. She is knowledgeable and honest. As a first-time mother, I had many questions and Dr. Lawrence has always answered them with good faith and humored me for the obvious ones. My baby and I were lucky enough to have a doctor like Dr. Lawrence. If you are looking for a doctor that is personable and caring she comes highly recommended. - JJ

Dr. Lawrence is absolutely wonderful! I had a rough time with deciding if I wanted to go through surgery to get rid of my fibroids. Dr. Lawrence provided me with options [and] even told me the outcome that was likely to occur after the surgery. She also helped me with going through my pregnancy and answered all of my questions with NO JUDGMENT. She wasn't able to deliver my son but she came to my room after her shift and checked on me. I will never ever switch; wherever she goes I will follow. Dr. Lawrence, if you see this, I want you to know you are a godsend. - DW
