What People Say About Dr. Donald Lewis, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
The employee that checked me in was not friendly nor did she realize that I had given her my Medicare Supplement Insurance card and forgot to give her my Medicare card. Dr Lewis came in the examining room, stated his name and advised me rudely and abruptly that he was not aware that AARP offered insurance. I had scheduled the appointment to discuss the progression of Dupuytrens in both my hands and to determine if options other than surgery were available per my research. He never examined my hands and rudely told me that surgery was not done unless the hand could not be placed flat on a surface. He showed no interest or compassion that I barely have the use of both my hands. When I returned home, I called his office to provide my Medicare number. My reaction is that he is only interested in patients that he immediately can insure that he will receive payment. Maybe his staff needs to be trained to understand and scrutinize insurance cards at check in.

I highly recommend Dr. Lewis and his team if you need hand surgery. I recently had surgery on my hand and had an excellent result. As a physician, my hands are quite valuable for my livelihood. Prior to seeing Dr. Lewis, I spoke with a few different hand surgeons and they had great respect for their colleague and stated that he is an excellent surgeon. From the pre-op through the surgery, I had an flawless experience.

Poor result based apparently on initial poor diagnosis.
