Dr. Lewin's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lewin "I'm on Facebook and most all of it is public. Then there's Google. I have 7 children. 2 of them are deputy district attorneys. None has gone into medicine. They didn't see a lot of their father, which I deeply regret, and am trying to make up for, at this late date. I have a beautiful and wonderful wife who puts up with me and has for 32 glorious years. I retired from a largely conventional practice for her."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lewin "A compassionate, patient-focused, rather old-fashioned concept.... a throwback to the ethics and standards that prevailed when I chose to become a physician. I am first, last, and only, a patient advocate. I will see any patient with kidney disease whether they can afford to pay me or not, as long as I can keep this concept alive.  I do not believe that the present system, profit based, always addresses the needs of the patient, even those who participate in the current fashion of concierge medicine.  For 50 years, my patients, MediCal and uninsured, alike, received the benefits of concierge medicine, without the expense.  That's what my profession did, in the old days.  Well, despite a very modern, fast car, my ethics, from the oldest days, persist, and my knowledge is up to date.  It's my character that hasn't kept up with modern medicine.  I do know how to use a computer, but I take my histories by hand, while I look at YOU!"
