Patient Comments (59)
in Waupaca, WI |
After driving 40 miles, I did not actually get in to see Dr. Lewis. When I called ahead to let her know I would be 15 min. late, I was told that 10 minutes is the limit, though since I was close, the Dr could decide when I arrived. At check-in, just five minutes later, I was again told that 10 minutes is the limit, as the Dr. is on a tight schedule. After waiting ten minutes at the desk while they checked, I was told that I would have to reschedule with no hint of empathy. It was humiliating.

I went in with a condition I was concerned about and left feeling like I had a friend in Michelle. It was actually a really fun appointment. There is no doubt in my mind that I will continue to see Dr. Lewis for a long, long time! Thank you!
in Appleton, WI |
Very professional and informative and she and her staff really care pleasant visit.
Appleton, WI |
We were able to make a same day appointment. We only waited a few minutes in the waiting room and saw the doctor shortly after that. Dr. Lewis is competent and friendly. I would highly recommend her.
in Appleton, WI |
This is the second time I have seen Dr. Lewis, for two different reasons. She is an outstanding doctor. Both diagnosis were right on, treatment again was appropriate, considered cost of medication, but also her kindness, friendliness and professionalism were exceptional. I had been in the medical profession for many years and I would highly recommend Dr. Lewis to anyone.
I appreciate that Dr. Lewis communicates in a way that is very clear, direct, and personable. I have confidence in her expertise and am always able to understand what is going on and the rationale.
Dr. Lewis is a great Dr. I have never had any complaints about her care at all.

Very pleasant experience.
in Hortonville WI |
Dr Lewis is always a pleasure to see every year for my yearly check up. She ensures she looks everything over thoroughly. I was blessed with miles from both parents so it's always a concern for me to keep an eye on all of them and she makes sure everything is good. Her treatment of removing them when needed has always been taken care of. I would recommend her to anyone.
Appleton, WI |
This was my very first appt. with Dr. Lewis. I was recommended to see her from my new dr. She was very nice and apologized for the wait but then I felt like she was in a hurry doing my appt. The exam was very quick and any explanations were very quick and then she was done. But I am also dealing with the dr. I had for 32 years just retired so I have a new dr. and she sent me to Dr. Lewis, where my past dr. did what ever her could in his office and did not send me elsewhere.
Appleton, WI |
Dr. Lewis is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and has great rapport with her patients. Examinations and consultations are thorough. She answers any and all questions before leaving to move on to her next patient. SPF50 sunscreen at the ready, or she will provide plenty of reminders!

in Appleton, WI |
Dr. Lewis has treated me through 3 rounds of different skin cancers. She does a thorough check of my skin and I feel more at ease knowing I have her on my side if battle 4 comes about.
in Appleton, WI |
Recent visit was efficient, but thorough. Dr. Lewis was helpful and candid about treatment and outlook for future needs and treatments. My 4 star ratings for explaining medical conditions and listening (still good, but less than 5) are based on a previous experience where I felt less informed about the possibility, or probability, of the need for future additional procedures.
Appleton, WI |
Very thorough doctor with a pleasing personality!
Appleton, WI |
Been her patient for several years. Consummate professional and by her attitude and demeanor you can tell she loves her job and truly cares about her patients.
Appleton, WI |
This was my first time needing a dermatologist's opinion. Dr. Lewis and her staff were efficient, professional, compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable. Her 'bedside manner' was spot on. She didn't mind explaining my treatment plan a second time when I asked. I so appreciated the fact that she didn't rush through my appointment. She took the time to be sure that I was comfortable at all times during my appointment.
in Combined Locks WI |
Dr Lewis is an excellent doctor. would recommend her to any family, friends and coworkers.
in Appleton, WI |
I was referred by my gynecologist to check out some skin discoloration. I had also been using a prescription steroid cream for years to treat an area that had been diagnosed as eczema by my family doctor. Dr. Lewis looked at this area and diagnosed it as inverse psoriasis and suggested I try Vaseline rather than continual use of a steroid cream. Since my visit two weeks ago, I've used Vaseline on the area and the redness, itching and irritation have gone away and the skin looks much healthier.
in Crandon, WI |
Dr. Lewis is always very comfortable to work with, and makes me feels assured that her examination is both thorough and complete. Excellent "bedside manner", and explains all questions completely.
in Appleton, WI |
Always considerate and makes a point to ensure I get any questions answered right away. I consider it a educational visit, as well as a health status checkup.
Appleton, WI |
Dr. Lewis was extremely helpful and thorough in her treatment of me and my child for dermatological issues.

Knowledgeable! Thorough. Takes the time to discuss concerns!
in Neenah, WI |
I had mites from plant I bought (aloe) they were biting me 8 to 10 hours a day so I scrub my body 4 hours a day and could keep my sores to a minimum (had many bites at first) then my cleaning with essential oils kept them to a few sores on my head Dr Lewis never looked at my head at nape of neck where there were three sores where the babies are, she only checked feet, back ,and one ear. totally missed the spots she should check 100% and didn't -- still suffering, was not helped by her.
