I was, regretfully, referred to Christine Law after Dr. Sylvia Wright was booked for several months. I found Dr. Law to be the epitome of a NON-professional: curt, aloof, arrogant, disinterested, and dimissive. She not only never personally examined me, but on the day of surgery, she finally came in rushed and in an ugly mood. She barely spoke, cut into an area during the procedure that had not been anesthetized, and told me that she was only removing PART of an enlarged cyst on my back. I've never had a doctor inform me that they'd only perform PART of a surgery before, during which someone opened the exam room door to ask her a question!! When I returned post-surgery with obvious infections, she tried to play dumb to my husband and me, dismissing the information, not even examining the sites. Later, her nurse (who DID look) returned with a Rx for an antibiotic cream. Also, thanks to no post-surgical treatment recommendations for my previous mole-removal, those sites left dark blotches (on olive skin). My surgical cyst sites have swollen with time, with the one on my back especially enlarged and bothersome! I would NEVER recommend Dr. Christine Law, and am disgusted that she was ever recommended to me!!

I decided to try Dr. Christine Law despite the other reviews because it was convenient. Big mistake. She is brusque and short in manner, which is not a big problem for me if there is talent, but it becomes a communication problem if a physician cannot answer questions in a relaxed and attentive way. More importantly, she removed a tiny spot on my leg and left a giant ugly scar, after telling me it would disappear in a couple of weeks--this after shooting me up with so much lidocaine that I broke out in a terrible rash on my chest. She was quick to deny responsibility for the rash when I called her. Needless to say, I never went back, and I advise you to read all her reviews if you are considering seeing this doctor.

Never got a call from Dr. Law to tell my my cancer diagnosis. I had to leave several messages before calling the general office staff to complain. Finally someone identified as her nurse casually told me the pathologist report. While having surgery to remove the cancer I was ignored while she talked to her assistant about some computer problems. Dr. Law could certainly use some life lessons on humility and compassion. Treating the whole patient is very important. She may have gotten passing grades in med. school but she sure fails in the area of interpersonal skills. Don't go near her if it would bother you to find out you have cancer.

Took my 3 year old in to have her look at a rash. She didn't take the time to do some simple diagnostics (scrape it, look under the microscope to determine if it was fungal or not). So... we applied a steriod cream that she prescribed which turned the smaller rash into a fully inflamed 2 inch by 2 inch red swollen area. We went to Florida on vacation, and following her instructions, we called her office back. We never got a call back. I had to call in, and when I did, I was notified that she had called in a $50 cream to treat a fungal infection (but hadn't called us). However, there were generics available for less than half that cost. I called back again asking for the doctor to call me back, and her office manager hung up on me, after arguing with me about how she and the Medical Assistant handles all call backs. I merely wanted the doctor to call me back, but she wouldn't give me the chance. I never did get a call back from the doctor. What a horrible experience.
