Dr. Hewitt is one of the best doctors in town! I'm glad I chose him. I've been to so many other doctors, and they didn't care as much as he did! I highly recommend him!

Dr. Hewitt is an amazing physician. He is very personable along with being very knowledgeable and up to date with current practices and therapies. He is also happy to try alternative therapies and is open minded. Dr Hewitt had been my physician for 15 years and much longer for the rest of my family. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
