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.
