    in Colorado Springs, CO |
    Dr. Lewey was very detailed and informative. I had many questions and he took the time to address each one. He also suggested a generic brand which saved me quite a bit.
    Castle Rock, CO |
    Zero personality and terrible bedside manner. Barely greets patients and spends little time explaining things. Makes you feel as if questions are an imposition.
    New York, NY |
    First colonoscopy at previous location was fine except for nurse infiltrated IV. Second colonoscopy in 2015 was completely unprofessional. No patient privacy in pre-op area. After being wheeled into procedure area Dr Lewey didn't even acknowledge or greet me. Didn't ask if I was having any symptoms. Without any verbal warning he proceeded to digitally insert the lubricant before the procedure. After only being conscious for a couple of minutes after the procedure they rushed me to get dressed.

    I have known Dr Lewey for 20 years. He is very professional and has a wonderful bedside manner. His diagnosis and treatment regimens are exact and instill confidence. He is an excellent surgeon and clinician. He is very thorough in his examination and asks pertinent questions. I highly recommend Dr. Lewey to any patient seeking services from a gastroenterologist.
