He saved my life, TWICE (2001, 2012). Doctor Lewinsky is a knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate person. He is a true Renaissance Man interested in science, the arts, humanity, and the world in which we all live. I haven't seen him in several years, but I think of him thankfully quite often. He's the best!!!
