      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Lewis' Care Philosophy

      I am a general surgeon specializing in both benign and malignant diseases of the breast. My job is to educate women about their own specific type of disease. If that is cancer then I am there to help them through and to make informed choices that are best for them.
