"I just left an emergency appointment where I was treated by Dr. Lewis. I have never encountered a more caring doctor. She discussed my condition, possible differential diagnoses as well as signs/symptoms to be on the lookout for and what to do if any pop up. I felt so comforted leaving. Highly recommend Dr. Lewis."



"Dr. Lewis is professional, courtesy and wonderful. It’s hard to find people that truly care about patients and their circumstances and she truly does! The ladies at the front counter were very professional, friendly and quite welcoming. I will be returning!"



"I was 1 hr and 15 minutes early for my appt, (my fault) Holly was able to get me in to see Dr Lewis in 20 minutes, the staff is great and so is Dr Lewis, After getting my prescription from Dr Lewis I went to the eye center next door and Deb help me pick out a nice comfortable pair of eye glasses, $99 for a pair of progressive glasses.
