Review for Dr. Harris

Dr. Lewis has been my and my husband's cardiologist for 21 years. He has placed 23 syents in my heart since 2007. Dr. Lewis is very knowledgeable and efficient. He is caring and compassionate.

Review for Dr. Lewis

He allowed me to stand on a stool at he head of the bed while he performed his skillful surgery. Could be very demanding with staff at times, but that was because he cared. Loved him as the besr. Wish he was still in Ohio!

Review for Dr. Webb

Dr. Ross and his staff at Aesthetic Surgery Center - Naples are friendly and professional. I felt very welcome as a new patient and was comforted and re-assured by Dr. Ross. I underwent two rhinoplasty revisions and am completely happy with the results. I am so thankful to him and his staff!
