House of Hope and Geraldine Gutzwiller are very thankful to Dr. Lewis. Very professional, staff are very nice and friendly. Surgery was a total success everything was in order as we had plan, all appointments where right on schedule. We highly recommend Dr. Lewis office they do X-rays in the office on the spot if needed and that was a major plus to us.
