    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.

Dr. Lewan was practicing at Maui Memorial Medical Center this past weekend. My 91 years friend and neighbor had a concerning event. Dr. Lewan was fully present as he interacted with all present to find out as much detail as possible. He was extraordinary in handling staff, patients (the person in the same room was also his patient) and loved ones. His understanding and knowledge of people, meds, and especially the unique needs of geriatric patients is refreshing and unique. He was spot on with the cause and treatment. Pleasant, socially conscious, scary smart, kind, gentle, and cheerful. A breath of fresh in a hospital setting.
