I’m sorry but we did not have a good experience, surgical consult in ER and was moved immediately to a surgical room 1st floor without any confirmation that surgery was needed. My wife was out of pain after a couple of pain injections. Tests came back later that day proved bowel was not kinked and surgery was necessary . Instead of releasing her immediately . Was held another day costing us the Er and surgical room. Our out of pocket was close to $3500.00 . I guess that’s what a couple of tests and pain injections cost after insurance. Wrong

MJ – Nov 13, 2019
I highly recommend Dr. Lewis to breast cancer patients. He performed a lumpectomy on me recently. I felt confident in his expertise from the initial visit on. I had hospital techs assure me that I had a great surgeon. Except for a clean small incision in front and the main incision under my arm, I see no before and after surgery differences in my breast. He called me personally to give me the pathology report. Immediately after surgery, I was never in pain, just mild discomfort sleeping.

I cannot speak highly enough of this very knowledgeable and talented surgeon. He is direct, giving needed information so I could make the best decisions. He is unique in that he listens. He actually listens carefully and encourages questions. As for my life....he committed a miracle! When I came out of surgery there were the usual issues of having one's stomach muscles cut laterally. Yet I already began to feel better! Almost a month later and I feel almost like a teenager again! (at 67)

Cody Dupass in Hurricane, UT – Jun 03, 2017
Dr. Lewis is the best!!! I am currently a patient of his. I am fighting breast cancer and he did my surgery. I ended up having a port put in for chemo use and two surgeries to get the tumor out and lymph nodes removed. He eases your mind and makes the surgery not scary at all. After my chemo I had to get my gall bladder removed and Dr. Lewis was my surgeon for that. I trust Dr. Lewis with my life and so does my husband and children.

Dr. Lewis was on duty rounds when I was in the hospital for my internal hernia surgery by Dr. Speakman. Dr. Lewis was very attentive to my communication, he asked questions, and then presented a “get well” plan that we both agreed to. I had 100% confidence in him as my surgeon.
