When my wife went to see dr. Lewis he was informed that my wife was on dialysis and he said he would take care of her just like she was a part of his own family. My wife went in with neck pain after a fall dr. Lewis put her on 3 times the normal dose of Neurontin and twice the normal dose of hydrocodone. After my wife had been taking these two medications which my wife's kidneys are not working so it could not flush out the poisons of these two medicines. This doctor almost killed my wife.

I am very pleased with the neck surgery Dr. Lewis performed for me. The pain and tingling as well as the cold feeling in my left arm and hand immediately went away. Recovery was fast and I have had no problems with returning to work. This guy is awesome. Excellent and highly recommend him!!!!

I went to Dr. Lewis needing a spinal fusion. Other local doctors said I was not a good candidate. Dr. Lewis took the time to show me the MRI results and explain what neded to be done. I was able to schedule a visit with him and surgery within two weeks of my referral. Dr. Lewis and his staff were super nice, competent, and easy to talk to. I highly recommend him to anyone needing spinal surgery. I was up and walking a few hours after surgery and am improving daily.

Words cannot express my gratitude to this Dr. I was in so much pain for 2 weeks after a MVA and had lost height in my back due to a compression fracture at L3&4, which caused constant pain. Dr. Lewis performed Balloon Kyphoplasty at 8:00a.m in the morning and I have been pain free since. His office staff, as well as his outpatient staff at the hospital were very attentive, compassionate, professional and personable. I highly recommend this physician!!! Thank you Dr. Lewis!!

I have a history of chronic migraines since the age of 6, and having met many doctors in the course of my life Dr Adam Lewis was very clearly one of the best, with a welcome and friendly bedside manner and a productive attitude for getting the necessary surgeries scheduled and completed. The occipital nerve stimulator technology he used remains one of the most effective treatments I've encountered to date.
in Pearl, MS |
Dr Lewis has been a great doctor. He has always been there for me and when something new came out he would let me know to see if it would help me have a better quality of life. When I first seen him I could not even walk but after everything he has done I can walk now. I would recommend him to anybody. He cares!!
Jackson, MS |
Seems to be very competent however in the past years since I've seen this doctor, his demeanor has changed as he seems very busy and seems most interested in getting on to other patients. Extremely difficult to phone and actually talk to a real person and I've been waiting two weeks for a phone call to schedule another procedure. I've called, emailed to no avail.
in Decatur, MS |
I had an MRI yesterday which changed the setting on my programmable shunt. I called his office was told to come, no appointment needed for that. At over an hour drive from here it was refreshing to be welcomed at his office. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I was seen right away, and was tuned up quickly. Thank you
Dr. Lewis performed all three of my back surgeries. However, when I had my last one, something had changed about him. He looked and acted very different. He seemed too busy and not compassionate. His FNP was cruel, and always unprofessional. I was left with permanent damage after this past surgery. Very disappointed. My life has been altered drastically!
in Natchez, Mississippi |
I had a cervical disc replacement at two levels The week before Christmas 2015. I also had a left carpal tunnel release during the same surgery. The results were immediate. The day after the surgery, I basically had no pain. I was amazed. I would highly recommend disc replacement, as opposed to a fusion. Dr. Louis is in the top 1% globally of his profession. He did a fantastic job. I would highly recommend him for your surgical needs.
