This was my first appointment with Dr. Lewis. My wait time to see her was very short. My initial interaction withthe nurse was very positive and pleasant. Dr. Lewis came in to see me quickly after I was seen by the nurse. Dr. Lewis was very pleasant in her initial interaction with me. She was very thorough in her examination, asked me lots of questions, responded to all my questions, and made appropriate follow-up recommendations. She was very respectful and pleasant in her manner. I look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Lewis.

Dr. Lewis is very thorough and does not request unnecessary test if the examination does not warrant it. She is veryfriendly and answers all your questions. I even asked her about the Plant Base diet approach to a healthier you and she was not opposed at all. She also communicated that she responds to the patient questions from the secure emails sent in zocdoc. This is very good when doctors are too busy to get back to you via phone call.
