Dr. Lewis and the staff are top notched and I am Blessed to have found Dr. Lewis
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.

Very fortunate to have chosen someone so caring that the girls could each comfortably talk to as well.

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.
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.
