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.

If you need orthopedic surgery, you should consult with Dr Lewis and the staff at PIH in Whittier.
October 01, 2019
Every appointment I have with any doctor at PIH is a wait of at least 45 minutes.
September 26, 2019
Very honest. Was the first to say he didn't know what was causing the swelling but together we will find out.
September 18, 2019
great doctor
September 17, 2019
He would not see me on the original visit because his records indicated my problem was with the right hand instead of the left. His office did apologize for the incident when I called back.
September 10, 2019
Dr. Lewis went immediately to addressing what he could do to alleviate the pain in my right hand. He said that cortisone shots could help, but he couldn't tell me how long they would help. My hand was x-rayed and I got cortisone shots... I was in and out in an hour. It's been about a week and my hand has really improved... we'll see how long this lasts...

Highly recommend this doctor for trigger finger treatment
August 27, 2019
He's a good Orthopedic doctor, however, he has one foot in the door and one outside. If you want someone who will give you the time I would use another Orthopedic doctor in the PIH group.
