Dr. Lewis understood the discomfort I was experiencing and was able to see me on short notice during a busy time of year. He is an expert in his field and repaired my problem thoroughly, painlessly, and efficiently. I would enthusiastically recommend Dr. Michael Lewis to patients in need of endodontic care.

Dr. Lewis is exceptional at what he does. I was very uneasy prior to the procedure. He made me feel at ease and said I wouldn't feel anything. At first I didn't believe him, but I could not be more wrong. I didn't feel a thing! No exaggeration. If you're looking for a doctor to take care of your root canal, Dr. Lewis is the one for you ??????

My experience with Dr. Lewis was excellent. I had zero pain during and after the procedure. My case was somewhat complicated, and he took really good care to make sure that everything went well. He encouraged me to contact him after the procedure if I needed anything. Fortunately, I didn't have any problems. Highly recommended..

Beware of your billing. I had horrible experience with their billing. My insurance was charged with a higher price that was initially quoted. Few months later, I received a bill saying that I had an overdue balance from co-pay as a result of higher charges. When disputed, I was told that the staff had under quoted the price for the service. This did not make sense as they did check with my insurance plan before quoting me and we agreed to the price. Secondly, they attributed this to the complexity of insurance claims and insurance companies dictated the prices. Thirdly, we both agreed to the price of service and they charged differently to my insurance without informing me at all. This higher claims made me unable to claim for other dental claim as my plan had reach the annual limit. Horrible experience and I hope the company improves its business integrity.

My regular dentist referred me to Dr. Lewis for a root canal. While root canal is not the prognosis anyone hopes for, Dr. Lewis made it very quick and easy. I loved that he went over the procedure before starting and what to expect and most of all he went over the cost of everything so there is no sticker shock. I was in very minimal discomfort even after the anesthetic wore off. He is very professional and caring and the office is pristine. Betty, his office assistant, is exceptional as well. Dr. Lewis and staff made a root canal as pleasant as one can be :)

Just had a root canal performed by Dr. Lewis yesterday. I was greeted by a lovely lady named Betty at the front desk. The office was beautiful and well designed. I am skiddish about any dental procedures. However Dr Lewis alleviated all my concerns and made me feel very comfortable during the entire process. The root canal was painfree and quick! I can see why Dr Lewis was highly recommended. He is honest, informative, friendly and does excellent work. His staff is excellent too!

Dr. Lewis retreated a root canal for me that was abscessed. My primary dentist who diagnosed the abscess wanted to do exploratory surgery immediately and probable tooth extraction. Thank goodness I had my thinking cap on that day and decided to reach out to Dr. Lewis for his opinion - he took my call immediately. Dr. Lewis examined my tooth and gums thoroughly and simply and gently retreated the root canal. He saved me from much pain, expense, and the loss of my tooth. This is the second time

From the time I called Dr. Lewis's office to the moment I left the appointment I received kind, helpful, and honest care. After a thorough examination it was determined that my root was healthy and I didn't need a root canal or any endontic treatment. Dr. Lewis explained the cause of what I was experiencing in detail and even took the time to answer other unrelated dental questions I had. I hope to never need a root canal, but should it occur I know exactly where I'll go for honest care.

I had a severe infection and in extreme pain. Dr Lewis was referred by my dentist. He immediately made time to see me within two hours. He is kind compassionate and caring person. I felt complete trust. My case was difficult yet he too so much time to care for me and make sure I was not in pain. The office is just as kind as Dr Lewis. Betty the office manager is a true reflection of Dr Lewis. I am so grateful that I was sent to him. I recommend everyone to only see him. Ty Dr Lewis

Dr Lewis is a phonomenal Endodontist. Not only did he do an amazing job on my route canal but it was fast painless and even somewhat relaxing! (As crazy as that sounds!)Dr Lewis was incredibly patient with me and a week later when a new issue with my tooth came up, he saw me again and didn't stop my apt until he found the issue with my tooth and fixed it- it was amazing how dedicated he was to making me feel comfortable again. The office staff were wonderful and super friendly! Amazing place!

Dr. Lewis is incredible. It was so welcoming to get scheduled quickly. I've had two appointments and never waited longer than 10 minutes. One of my procedures was an emergency repair on a tooth that very likely could have been written off as a loss. He did not give up on saving my teeth. Anyone with challenging dental issues can certainly trust Dr. Lewis to protect their teeth. The staff in his office is also very professional and kind.

After waiting 4 weeks for an appointment, I showed up to find the receptionist made a mistake that could have been easily fixed prior to coming in - instead, they needed to reschedule the appointment costing me another 2 week's wait, plus take off from work again. Waited 30 minutes in the waiting room; found the doctor to not have a very good bedside manner (fairly dismissive). I won't be back. Note: Came in on a rainy day to find a bucket in the suite dorrway... met with drips.
