Dr. Lewis chose his specialty because he has always been fascinated with science and “really like helping people do the things in life they like to do.”  He feels rewarded seeing patients get better and return to their sports and activities.  It may surprise his patients to learn that Dr. Lewis has performed volunteer orthopedic surgery in St. Lucia and most recently in Bhutan.  In his personal time, Dr. Lewis enjoys trail running, mountain biking, triathlon, camping and coaching little league baseball.

September 14, 2016
Very fast visit with out spending enough time to talk and explain about the future precautions or explaining the side effects of the medicine and follow up. After the online research, I found the reason of my burning foot by myself. Since this medication, elevates the blood sugar, being a diabetic patient, it did elevate my blood sugar which damaged my nerves and giving me burning sensation under my foot.

June 17, 2016
I would tell my friends that this doctor probably knows his specialty, but he seemed a bit rushed or impatient. Perhaps it was just one of those days. Perhaps they get tired of explaining, what to them is elementary, to each new patient.

Very cordially and professional Doctor/Surgeon

Very caring.
May 31, 2016
Office was good. Provider conducted an appropriate assessment but was a little too "laid-back" and non-challant for my liking. I was looking for his expert opinion and recommendations for my issue, he kept putting the decision for what to do back on me
