I had lumbar surgery. I felt confident in my diagnosis and with the pre op information on what would be done. Dr Lewis is little on personality, but high on knowledge.
I had a spinal fusion in my lower back. Before surgery I could barely walk and doing normal things sent me to bed in pain. Since surgery I can do anything. I walk 3 miles a day, ride motor cycle, mow lawn with a walk behind mower. Sometimes at the end of a hard day it hurts a little but that is when I have spent two days painting or trimming hedges. But at least I can do it ! Very happy with outcome of surgery.
Dr Lewis is a great surgeon. My pain is gone.
I had trigeminal nerve surgery with Dr Lewis. I had horrendous pain for months and immediately after the decompression surgery in my brain, I had immediate relief with no pain since. Dr Lewis and his entire staff are wonderful. I can't say enough good things about all of them.
I have been a patient of Dr Lewis' for many year. I have had 3 lumbar surgeries and 3 cervical surgeries over the last 25 year. Each time my quality of life was greatly improved. From being in severe pain to little to no pain and symptoms. Several family members I referred to Dr Lewis also who have had to have lumbar and cervical surgeries and all of them are back doing all activities that they were doing prior to their surgeries and feeling great.
I was in a lot of pain, could barely stand and it was effecting my work and all other aspects of my life.After the surgery I noticed right away that the pain was gone.A few months laterI was able to work again.I still have some numbness in my left leg because of nerve damage but I can live with that.Thank you!!!!
He is a great doctor. I had lumbar surgery in 2016 and I am feeling great now. Before surgery I was in constant pain couldn't stand up or do anything. I am now more energetic and can do almost anything.
I Jeremy B Hubbard would highly recommend Dr. Lewis for any surgery of the spinal region! Since my surgery and recovery I've been able to work the way I used to without any major pains or mobile restrictions. I work 12 hours per day, 7 days a week and am able to live a normal life thanks to the expertise of Dr. Lewis and his staff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone!
I finally after nearly 10 surgeries with Dr. Lewis realized I was not any closer to being pain free than I was after the first surgery. So when he recommended yet another surgery that was very involved, I found another surgeon. His bedside manner is non-existent, he does nothing but walk in the room, stare at your films, ignore all your questions, then walk out. His P.A.'s do a majority of the work, he is extremely arrogant, and his nurse is downright nasty. Long waiting room time also.
Highly recommend Dr. Lewis and his staff. Great, caring, compassionate people.
I will never have surgery done by Dr. Lewis again. Surgery at South Buffalo Mercy Hospital is a nightmare. I was placed in a room with screaming geriatric patients. Dr. Lewis's PA's do all of the work. He only reviews the MRI and checks their diagnosis. I only saw him for a few minutes. The PA assured me that I would be pain free after the surgery. Four months later my pain is worsening again and an MRI has revealed a new problem. They are ignoring me and do not return phone calls as promised.
Recently had cervical fusion with doctor Jeffery Lewis pain in left arm was around a 8 of 10 soon after surgery approx 7 days I noticed a pain difference of 2 of 10.. In my eyes it's been a 95% success rate.
I had a disc replacement/ fusion done by dr.lewis in 2015 after suffering for almost 13 years with a bulging disc / herniation. I wish I would have done this years ago, my surgery was great , I was very well informed what to expect and what could happen. I feel ten times better ,very minimal scaring and great after care. Dr. Lewis is a miracle worker and the staff if very helpful.
HORRIFIC EXPERIENCE. Don't let this man touch you! He will make you worse. He is cold, rude & arrogant. Secretaries & nurse are rude. My family member had 4 surgeries by him & now he wants to do 5th surgery. Came out of 3rd surgery needing assistance to walk as their leg would just go out & they would fall. 4th surgery, no better. Now he wants to do 5th. Went to new surgeon who said problem is neck not the back. Thank God they went to new surgeon & didn't let this man cut their back open again.
I will recommend Dr.Moreland to family and friends. I had several surgeries- all were successful.
Dr Moreland explained each procedure thoroughly. I trust his knowledge and abilities very much.
Post surgery follow ups were thorough. Dr Moreland answered the list of questions I had and did not rush me.
His staff was great - pleasant and helpful.
I have been a patient of Dr.Lewis since 2002. He has done 3 back surgeries from 3 different work injuries.He also did a carpal tunnel surgery and have had no problems since. Most recently ,in January, I had a brain surgery done to remove a tumor. I came out of the surgery with no headaches and still in my right mind. And I am still here thanks to him and to God. Dr.Lewis is an awesome surgeon, his staff is also awesome and very professional and I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Dr. Pollina is a fantastic surgeon. He takes the time to explain everything in detail to you and is never bothered by any questions like most surgeons are.

I had a chiari malformation from a truck an camper rollover, I went to 37 drs all said. No. They cant help me. They did not want to do a risky surgery. And to just deal with everything. Or go to long Island ny, I could not travel 8 hours with what I was going threw , then came across Dr Lewis witch was a god sent. After 3 years of fighting I got my license back, and doing everyday activities, God bless this place. That I can live again.
I had a benign brain tumor. Dr. Lewis and his team had it removed, now the only problem is that i have to drive all the way out to West Seneca for checkups.
He was very efficient and organized. My craniotomy went as described and planned. My family was given a hourly update which made them comfortable during the procedure. My recovery time was shorter than originally thought which was great for me and my family.
I have had three different surgeries with Dr. Egnatchik over the last 15 years, all separate issues. I found Dr. E to be very compassionate, yet straight forward about my conditions. He is not 'quick to cut' and did only what was necessary to allow me a better quality of life. I am very happy to say that all three surgeries were 100% successful and that I am able to function, work and participate in all the recreational activities that I did before I ever developed any physical problems.
He has performed 6 spinal surgeries on me and I'm waiting for a SCS to be put in place. He answers all your questions and his PA's are awesome.
After he operated and screwed up my back even more than it was before surgery, he dropped me and sent me to another surgeon. He also has a tendency to not remember what he says from one time time to the next. I would NEVER recommend him.
Dr Moreland did my lower back surgery in 1998, at the time I was in so much pain that I couldn't get in or out of a car without extreme nerve pain . After surgery I was imidiatly out of nerve pain just surgical recovery pain. I followed his instructions and now 18 years later have never had a lower back problem. He did my wife's lower back 10 or so months ago same result. Thank you Dr Moreland , staff and office staff all pros !
Dr. Lewis removed my microprolactinoma. The transnasal surgery was successful with no complications. Before the surgery Dr. Lewis told me that he was very successful with all pituitary surgeries. I was not nervous at all. Before and during the surgery his staff was extremely positive, supportive & they were also available whenever I had any questions or concerns even on holidays. Both Dr. Lewis and his staff went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and not in pain. Anthony his PA wa
I had a pinched nerve in my neck (which caused complete numbness in my R arm + the R side of my back), which I went to specialist after specialist for + no one could figure it out. I was with Anthony (the PA) for about 2 minutes + he saw it + told me that it could be fixed w surgery. Dr. Lewis put 2 cages in my neck, and within 2 weeks I had feeling back in my arm and shortly after I had feeling back in my back! Dr. Lewis is a FABULOUS surgeon!
I HAD SURGERY WITH DR.LEWIS ,ALTHOUGH HE DOESN'T HAVE THE BEST BEDSIDE MANOR,HE IS A VERY TALENTED SURGEON.
DR.LEWIS SAW ME IN THE HOSPITAL AFTER I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH AN ANYEURISM FROM A RARE BLOOD DISEASE. I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL TWICE AND IN ICU FOR A MONTH, WHEN I CAME HOME THE HEADACHES AND PRESSURE IN MY HEAD WERE REALLY BAD. DR.OMAR REFERRED ME TO DR.LEWIS AND HE RECOMMENDED A VP SHUNT. I HAD IT DONE AND NOW THE PRESSURE HEADACHES ARE SUBSIDING AND I AM ABLE TO FUNCTION BETTER. I HAVE A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME AND DR.LEWIS HAS BEEN THERE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.. I AM VERY GRATEFUL FOR WHAT HE DID.
Dr.lewis has fixed everything he said he would fix.
Dr. Lewis is an extremely competent surgeon with skillsets unmatched by most doctors in his field of expertise. Dr. Lewis brought me back from near death, and gave me mobility that all I'd seen were either unable, could not, or would not help me. Dr. Lewis did not hesitate to bring to my attention all the available options for a medical solution. Today I live & play near pain free, and without medication of any kind. I enjoy a reasonablly full life, having had 3/4s of my cervical spine fused.
Very good Doctor
11 days out and I feel like I used to pre-injury and I'm absolutely amazed. ALIF/TLIF, PEEK cages with bone morphogenic protein, rods and screw's. I have the utmost faith in Dr. Lewis and would recommend anyone to him that has back issues. He didnt rush me to surgery, but after conservative measures failed, he did me right. Dr Lewis and his staff are true professionals.
Saved my life. Prevented live in a wheelchair, helped me through surgery to walk correctly, use my hands, feel again. The most gifted, talented doctor ever. Did I also mention that Joanne is amazing and staff is the best!
was treated poorly by staff .Waited over a month just to see a p.a. then was told to come back two months later to see the doctor even though I was in very much pain. This was very poor service for someone that was in this condition way to long waiting and being treated poorly
at the sign in window ,also when I tried to get an answer by other staff. Never got to see the doctor it was not worth the trouble. Very, very poor treatment
