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.

Absolutely loved him. I would choose Dr. Lewis over any of the other orthopedic surgeons. He's knowledgeable, direct and to the point, and has patients best interest at heart. Isn't quick to do any surgery before exhausting all other options. That says a lot about a surgeon.

Do not go to PIH
August 15, 2018
Provider did not listen carefully and was not caring enough to try to find a solution to an issue he did not understand. He clearly told me he did not know what was wrong but did not suggest further studies. I waited a month and a half for this appointment and was severely disappointed and dissatisfied.
August 10, 2018
PIH is a wonderful provider. I highly recommend them. I always feel very comfortable going to one of their physicians.

Dr.Lewis is compassionate, understanding and caring, with regards to patient's pain and care. He makes sure you are comfortable in your understanding of diagnosis and completely walks you thru even the smallest detail. Including x-rays. Not to mention, awesome surgeon.
