knowledgeable, courteous, and thorough

Treated for a fracture of the humerus bone in the shoulder region. Dr. Lewis analyzed the condition, reviewed details of the x-rays, explained the treatment, and recommended exercises coupled with physical therapy to regain full mobility.

Requires unnessary x-rays. Spends very little time with you. Acts like he's doing you a favor to be there.

My doctor no longer

Not only was I seriously disappointed with the lack of courtesy shown to me by his support staff, but I was also appalled at his flirtiness and lack of professionalism.

An amazing doctor

Seeing Dr. Lewis was an incredible experience. Not only does he really care about my family (we all see him) but he is amazing at what he does. I had seen several doctors for help before coming to doctor Lewis. He, however, immediatly diagnosed my illness and finally gave me the answers that I needed. Now I'm pain free!
