I feel Dr. Lewis is a very good doctor and she knows her business. I'm very happy that she is myPCP. changes are hard to deal with sometimes, as I was a patient of Dr. Balestrino for over 30 years.

I am very pleased to have Dr. Lewis as my new PCP. She spends time with me and listens to the list of concerns I have had regarding the medications that I have been taking and their effects. I think she is very thorough and knowledgeable.

Dr. Lewis is very personable and pleasant. The staff is also very pleasant and helpful.
Dr. Lewis is always very easy to talk to. Any time I have seen her she had treated me with respect and given suggestions and advice with good intent.
I've always felt that I have my doctor's full attention during each visit.
provider was inconsiderate and made me feel belittled by her comments about going to dentist and not caring about my emotional health at all.
Dr. Lewis takes her time and always shows she cares about her patients. She brought up information that I was surprised she still remembered.
I love my Doc! So easy to talk to.

Dr. Ashley Lewis is an excellent personal care provider
this was my first visit with Dr. Lewis and I love her. she gave me so much help and information and was so patient and great at helping me. This am someone called me from her office to see how I am doing.
I can't say enough good things about this office. From the front office staff, the nurse, the nurse practitioner & the doctor... ALL were just wonderful. I would highly recommend the doctor and staff.

she did a great job of making me fell better
the drs are the greatest. everyone that works there is excellent. I have the greatest respect for these drs. dr. Ashley Lewis is the best dr.
I came to doctor Lewis to get a physical yearly, annual and don't think that it was a thorough one! She didn't check my ears , she didn't do my reflexes and I'm sure there's more that is needed that was not done she did listen to my chest and basically that was it and rat gave blood because I asked about possibly having lupus she sent a report with no explanation of what they report meant which I'm not sure to this day with a 17 means from 0 to 40 for the lupus graph
Dr. Lewis is the best doctor I've had in a long time
Dr Lewis is a great Dr she is very through goes over every concern I have and listen to what I have to say.
Dr. Lewis thoroughly reviewed recent lab work I had done. I appreciate the time she took with me.
I love Dr. Lewis. she is so fun and light-hearted and is very reassuring!

Everything was excellent.
Very Compitent doctor
It was my first visit, Dr. Lewis good not have been more attentive to my every question and my medical records. My husband will now be switching his PCP also.
I love this provider because I called for an appointment and they got me in the very next day.
Dr Lewis was great; knowledgeable, energetic, good listener.
the dr was very easy to talk to
Dr Lewis was very interested in getting my medications correctly entered in my chart. I appreciated her effort and she talked to me about medications I take. I find her very respectful of me as an individual. I appreciated immensely that she never once said "as we age.". She is informative and upbeat about managing conditions.
Dr Lewis is a good PCP but she sometimes makes kind of rude comments or remarks while speaking about certain serious issues.
I found Dr Lewis to be professional and personable. She was familiar with my health history and answered my questions to my satisfaction. Overall, this was a good experience.
Initial (new patient) appointment with MD was excellent: she took time to address all of my questions and had previously reviewed all of my medical history from other doctors. Medical asst. barely spoke a word and doesn't tell me my blood pressure unless I ask. Most recent visit with MD was rushed with limited communication, but she did provide a referral and exercises to address the problem after examining me.
in the past I had trouble getting anyone to answer a call actually on hold approximately 45 minutes but that has not been the case lately. I really like my Dr office staff is great and I get in quickly to see Dr same day if needed and their location is very convenient. I am pleased overall and hope with any health care changes in 2018 that I am able to stay with them.
Dr. Lewis was amazing! So much better than my last pcp. She listened and helped me feel so much better about my questions. I am going to start the process of switching both of my children to her care.
this was my first visit to this office. I couldn't have been more pleased with Dr. Lewis

this was my first visit with Dr Lewis. I wanted to change my primary care doctor and Dr Lewis and the Renaissance Family Practice seemed like a better fit than my current provider. I was extremely pleased with Dr Lewis because she really listened to me and was respectful of the knowledge I brought about my medical conditions. She also spent time with me and I could discuss with her my medication concerns. I drove a long distance from Greensburg to Verona and I will gladly do so again because I think Dr Lewis is outstanding.

This was my first visit I recently was recommended by a friend to change my PCP to Ashley Lewis. She was amazing, along with all of her staff in helping me and discussing my current health issues. I have had major issues with my previous PCP and am very glad that I took my friends advice and now see Dr. Lewis.
She was excellent. My normal physician is Dr. Brown. I was there for a check-up prior to my cataract. Dr. Brown was away.
Dr. Ashley Lewis is amazing!
Ashley was super nice and very helpful. I loved the fact that she had so much info on pregnancy as well since she just had a newborn.
The nurse and Doctor were OUTSTANDING. And the woman at the checkout desk was very kind.
Dr. Lewis showed exemplary attentiveness to me as a patient, doing the most to make sure I was comfortable throughout every step of the examination process, and being generous with the time spent on me. Since this was my first visit with a new doctor, I was very nervous beforehand, but Dr. Lewis made me feel at ease early on and I left my appointment that day feeling very relieved. I'm happy to be a new patient of hers.
Since becoming a patient with this practice I've received excellent care and have recommended this practice to others.
I was very pleasedwith my appointment!
Dr. Lewis is extremely nice and professional. I felt very comfortable in her care.
I was called back before my appointment time, and Dr. Lewis came in within about 6 minutes. Dr. Lewis talked with me and listened to me. She took time and didn't rush me. She is really personable and has a great bed side manner. Some doctors never look up from their computer and don't give patients much time.
I received excellent care from everyone! I am very pleased with my personal physician providing my background to the physician who saw me because she could not. Because of that this physician was able to directly address my problem. I am, as always, pleased with all phases of the visits I have had here!
It was a good experience with no issues or complaints.
