"Very pleasant front desk and dr lewis always gives her full time and attention."



"Dr. Lewis saved my little boy’s life. He was diagnosed with Lyme disease and was being treated with the normal medication. He was complaining of vision problems. I made an appointment to have him checked. When Dr. Lewis did his eye exam she pulled me aside and told me I had to take him to the hospital immediately that she had already called the hospital and that they were expecting me. He had Lyme meningitis. He was in intensive care for a week. The doctor said he would have died, and certainly has gone blind if Dr. Lewis had not sent us. I can never repay her for what she did but she will always be my example of excellence in health care. Koch Eye Associates has found a precious gem and that gem is Dr Lewis."



"This has been my second visit with Dr. Lewis and I honestly cannot say good enough things. Probably one of the few doctors I have been to where not only do I not feel rushed, but she genuinely seems to care and want to help in whatever way she can. She is patient, thorough and reassuring. I honestly felt for the first time since dealing with eye issues and dizziness that we will get an explanation and solve it. The office staff were all excellent as well - getting me in as soon as possible due to an unexpected eye issue. Cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Dr. Lewis and Team!"



"Dr. Lewis is fantastic. Friendly staff, clean, neat waiting area."



"I have been a Koch eye patient for over 20 years.  Dr. Michele Lewis along with her technician Joy have truly kept me feeling very confident in their ability to take the best care of my eyes.  I cannot thank them enough for being thorough and geniunely concerned about their patients eye care."
