We were running late because I went to the wrong office. Dr. Lewis took his time with our consultation and was very thorough with what he felt were my daughter's options for her surgery. He answered all our questions and concerns. I will highly recommend him to my family and friends!! Job well done Dr. Lewis!! Thank you!! Steve Thomas

Dr. Lewis provided excellent care for me for many months, including several very difficult surgical procedures. He was able to correct intestinal problems that two other surgeons were unsuccessful with. After 8 months of hospitalization, I have dealt with many doctors, and I can tell you that he is an exceptional doctor and a kind, compassionate human being. I couldn't recommend him more highly! I am alive today because of the grace of God and the skill and dedication of Cannon Lewis.
