Office Information

At Lawrence General Surgery, we are committed to providing the best, high-quality surgical care at LMH Health. But it’s our dedicated, compassionate surgeons and staff that deliver an unparalleled level of personal care to patients, family members and caregivers that makes surgery different here.

We work closely with you and all the members of your care team – family members, primary care physicians, other specialists – to provide a “full circle of care” that we believe promotes better outcomes which leads to better healing.

Lawrence General Surgery does not require a referral to schedule an appointment. However, if your insurance plan requires a referral from your primary care physician, it is your responsibility to obtain it prior to your appointment. Please bring this referral with you.


Lawrence General Surgery is located on the second floor of the Lawrence Health Plaza, inside LMH Health. For your convenience, we provide free valet parking from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at our Arkansas Street entrance (near the fountain).

  • Lawrence General Surgery (surgeon fee)
  • LMH Health (hospital fee)
  • LMH Health/Pathology (for any lab/pathology testing)
  • Lawrence Anaesthesia PA (anaesthesia/sedation fee)

  • LMH Health/Pathology (for any lab/pathology testing)*

*If your insurance requires use of another reference laboratory for testing, you will receive a bill from that lab.

Lawrence General Surgery contracts with most insurance companies; however, we recommend that you contact your carrier or visit their website for verification. We accept cash, check or credit card as payment. We also coordinate with LMH Health’s financial assistance programs, which may include charity care, payment arrangements, medical assistance, or other applicable programs. You may contact our billing office at 866-434-1545 ext. 85419 for more information, or visit the hospital’s financial assistance program and guidelines.

Medical Record

As an employed practice of LMH Health, we share the same electronic health record (EHR) system. Therefore, we can review records from other LMH Health employed physicians/specialists and departments within the hospital (e.g., radiology and laboratory). This connection allows us to see a more full picture of your health, and removes the need to request your medical record from multiple sources.
