Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

The doctor was great. His nurse was very good. The staff that I tried to book appointments with for the initial exam and then follow up tests, extremely poor.

The appointment was quick and brief. I think he was late getting to the office so perhaps needed to go quickly to catch up. I had several questions to ask, but the appointment was over before I asked even one question.

Dr. Lewis was very patient and took his time with us explaining my condition and expected results. I never felt like he was rushed or too busy. He broke things down into understandable analogies that helped us greatly understand my condition.

I was really impressed with Dr. Lewis' "bedside manner," how well he listened to my concerns about my mild heart attack and how effectively he answered these concerns, used terminology I understood, and discussed my next follow-up visit.

Dr. Lewis is awesome! He always takes his time to explain things and is very thoughtful and adaptive in his approach in treating me. I never feel like he is doing "medicine-by-numbers." He is very friendly, even cracking jokes at times. His demeanor helps take the fear and anxiety out of a potentially scary health situation. I have often gushed about him to friends and clients. He is unparalleled as a doctor!
