Dismissive, unsympathetic demeanor, poor patient management--didn't even glance at the history of frequent abnormal episodes and tossed it back to us. He left the exam room to get a stress test scheduled but never came back and never scheduled the test. The MA came in, laughed at us and said You're still here? Dr Lewis left for the day! Even the RN was unhelpful, told us to schedule the test ourselves, didn't give us the phone number nor allowed us to borrow the clinic phone to schedule it.
