Dr. Lewis is a wonderful, caring and compassionate person. My husband and I think the world of him. I would trust my life with him. When he is puzzled about what’s going on with you, he will sit down with you and try to figure what’s going on with you and how he could find the problem. Also, his nurse Meri is wonderful as well. Always helpful..

Dr Lewis is the kindest, most gentle caring doctor my family has met in a long time. My brother Todd is battling neuronendocrine pancreatic cancer (since 2007) and had issues with his duodenum and had a stent placed and then more issues and needed a drain inserted. He is now recovering and doing well. I have had to call Dr Lewis twice for questions and mrs. Myra and Dr Lewis returned my calls the same day and were so kind and helpful. They are amazing .

I have full confidence in Dr. Lewis. My father has been a patient of his for several years. When I needed to reach out for a gastro specialist appointment there was no doubt that I would call Dr. Lewis's office. The staff is always very helpful and compassionate whatever the situation. Dr. Lewis makes himself available to his patients and will even call you himself. Not too many doctors still go that extra mile for their patients and truly care. Great doctor all around!

Dr. Lewis is most definitely the kindest, most compassionate, and professional healthcare provider that I have experienced in my long journey with health concerns. He spends quality time with me, listens to my concerns, answers all of my questions, and encourages me to speak out if I have not been treated in a dignified fashion in any of the hospitals or clinids with which he is associated. He is a strong patient advocate, and truly goes far beyond the norm to ensure quality care for all.
