Thank you so much Dr Lewis an team for saving my life

Met with Dr. Lewis for a consultation regarding my Mitral Valve Regurgitation. His ability to educate and disarm my fears were greatly appreciated. He ordered a 3D TEE which was executed professionally by the staff of Dr. Ahmed. The results were then reviewed with me by Dr. Lewis. Look no further, he and Gloria (his office Manager) are absolutely the best.
in Soddy Daisy, TN |
I would highly recommend Dr. Lewis for any kind of heart surgery. He replaced my Aortic valve using a minimally invasive procedure. He was by to see about me everyday and his supporting cast right down to the people who cleaned your room were great. His consultation with my wife and myself answered all question about the procedure and created a very positive atmosphere.
in Huntsville, AL |
Dr. Lewis performed a repair on my mitral valve with the Da Vinci Medical Robot. He guided me with excellent counsel each step of the way and saw me every day in the hospital. I felt secure in his hands. All of the nursing staff at the hospital knew how he wanted things done. I felt very cared for and well taken care of at the hospital.
