I could not recommend anyone whose organization cannot accommodate my needs; I was treated like a faceless patient. If not for my intervention, the appointment would have been totally ineffective.

04/19/2016
I know this is a very intelligent doctor. But he always,seems in a hurry and therefore is not thorough in inquiring about meds, blood work or having the courtesy to talk at length about my current health assessment. I only see him once a year. I think that deserves more than a 15 minute face time conversation.

03/22/2016
All the time and care Dr. Lewis showed me was greatly appreciated. He went a long way to reassure me that my experience in the ER (A-fib) was totally treatable and not a life threatening situation.
