Dr. John Lawson was the founding father of The John Lawson Surgical Group (JLSG). Dr. John Lawson always had a reputation of being calm, mild-mannered and respectful of patients and families. As the group has grown, we do our best to maintain Dr. Lawsonís philosophy in patient care. Dr. Lawson retired in the early 90ís and after a highly successful career in general surgery and a long caring and compassionate life he passed away in 2007.
Dr. Beth Lawson, Johnís daughter, joined the group in 1986 after finishing her residency in Memphis, TN. The practice continued to grow and Dr. Tony Haley joined the group after completing his residency at Quillen College of Medicine and was fortunate to train under Dr. John Lawson.
Dr. Kenneth Cutshall, a native of Johnson City, returned home to practice surgery with JLSG in 1992 and the last addition to the group is Dr. Trey Robertson. Dr. Robertson is originally from Chattanooga and attended medical school at the University of Louisville, in Kentucky. He came to ETSU for his surgical residency and trained under Dr. Tony Haley and Dr. Kenneth Cutshall and decided to join the group when he completed his residency.
