Great provider, I can talk to her about any and everything!
I am thankful that when I have an health emergency such as allergies flaring up asthma I am able to see Dr. Ashley to get proper care without an unnecessary emergency bill.
My visit was a very good experience
Only good experiences with my provider. She is always really nice, and very helpful.
I was very pleased with the care and concern of my health needs
It's Her way or the hi way
Dr. Lewis is kind,patient and thorough. She truly took the time to listen to concerns and work through possible causes and treatments. I would recommend her highly!
This was my first time to see Dr Lewis as my new PCP since my previous PCP left the practice. She had read my records & walked into the room knowing my medical history. She was kind, caring, treated me like I have a brain and didn't rush. It was a very positive experience.
It was a great experience with my doctor, she is a very thorough health care provider.
I enjoyed my visit with my health care provider, she was very knowledgeable and explained things well.

Dr. Lewis is one of the best physicians I have seen during my adult life. She is very supportive to cut back dose of BP Rx working towards elimination. Dr. Lewis gave me the treatment plan IF this Rx does not work & spent the correct amount of time to give overview of treatment.
This was my first time meeting my new doctor and I was very impressed.
Dr Burns left the practice & this was my first visit with Dr Lewis. I was very impressed with her. I felt comfortable asking her anything. She was very knowledgeable & easy going.
Dr. Lewis and the staff are top notched and I am Blessed to have found Dr. Lewis
my dr is kind, professional and supportive. Always pleasant, I'm always happy with the care and treatment she provides
This was my first visit to establish care with Dr. Lewis as my new PCP. She's a great doctor and I feel confident in her care at this point. She addressed all my major concerns. Some specific points are that she is the first doctor to re-take my blood pressure after I had been in the office for some time and had calmed down, she also made a point to have me scheduled with the therapist, as anxiety is a major concern, so I couldn't put it off any further.
She informed me she would get back to me last week with the results of my blood work. I have had no communication from her regarding these results. This is why I waited to complete this survey.
Dr. Lewis taught me that I am important. and that I matter. she's helping me keep control of things that matter in my life.
Nothing but great health care from Dr. Lewis. Kind, caring person. Her entire staff and all that work at Renaissance are very professional.
Very attentive doctor.

This was my initial visit with Dr. Lewis as she is my new PCP. I was very comfortable with her and she seems to be a great doctor. She is very attentive and informative and easy to communicate with. I left my appt. feeling I had made a GREAT choice in choosing her.
Ashley Lewis recommended an additional mammogram and sonogram for the right breast lump I felt was enlarged
Dr. Lewis was extremely knowledgeable about my areas of concern and was very supportive. She presents with a calming demeanor and is very friendly. She was also concerned with my overall well-being, not just my physical health. I hope to retain her as my PCP, if Highmark and UPMC can finally come to an agreement and do what is best for patients not just for the wallets of their administrators.

We recently switched to UPMC, and worried about changing pediatricians, but found Ashley Lewis a wonderful caring physician who talked well to my 3 daughters on each of their visits, found she is very knowledgeable and they liked her warm friendly personality right away. Very fortunate to have chosen someone so caring that the girls could each comfortably talk to as well.
Dr. Lewis was respectful, patient, and kind to me, my husband, and my children. Both of the kids had well checks with her for the first time as we just moved from Utah.

I transferred to Dr. Lewis after my previous PCP retired. I have been very impressed with her knowledge and her positive attitude. She is very reassuring as I have had several concerns about my health. She has helped me with changing medications that I previously had significant side effects with. She listens and treats me with respect as I am an RN with many years of clinical and administrative experience. I really appreciate that she gets in touch with me regarding my lab results, change in meds, or concerns that I have rather than having the office staff contact me.....this really means a lot to me.
Dr. Ashley Lewis and Gayle (office staff) were very friendly, helpful and respectful. I am so glad I switched doctors in your office to go to her.
I haven't been to a health care provider in over 5 years and never really had a PCP. My spouse talked about how nice the staff was when she had to receive medical care.

She gave me options about my preventative health care and made the experience very pleasant.
Cr Lewis is very thorough. She is a very considerate Doctor. I am so lucky to have her.

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 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.
