What People Say About Dr. Melba Lewis, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Hands down the best doctor I’ve ever had. In a few words she is thorough, talented, and communicative. Dr. Lewis has literally come to the rescue twice in my life, 13 years apart. In 2005 she recognized my recurring tonsillitis and sinusitis which others has dismissed as allergies. After surgery until now (2019) I’ve had 2 confirmed sinus infections compared to one a month before. More recently, in June 2018, I returned to Dr Lewis even after researching other doctors because I didn’t have time for the wait which some complain about (yeah it can take a while). After questioning she began to narrow down possible causes to a random hearing loss issue. It turns out that the latest issue was much more serious - an acoustic neuroma which is a type of brain tumor that sits on the hearing nerve. She called when she got the MRI results (at 9pm) and stayed in the phone with for an hour explaining my options. I'm truly thankful for Dr Lewis and her attentive and thorough care.

My son got surgery by Dr Lewis a few months ago, and I have been paying off his bill since. The surgery went well but Dr Lewis took twice as long to perform the surgery as it should have taken. Apparently there were no complications, just the doctor just takes a long time. Well, that would be fine except I had to pay extra because the anesthesiologst time costs extra. On top of that, the follow up appointments weren't included in the cost of surgery! Other surgeons include these appointments.

Probably never on time but once she is with you, she is there as long as you need her. Worth the wait, just plan on waiting.
