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.

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.

PIH is a wonderful provider. I highly recommend them. I always feel very comfortable going to one of their physicians.

April 26, 2018
great doctor.knows his business
April 20, 2018
I used to think that he was just too arrogant, but I have decided that he may very well be as good as he thinks he is (and I have told him so). He has mellowed a bit with age, tho....And, I truly believe that his "arrogance" (if that's what I need to call it) makes him a perfectionist and a better doctor and surgeon. He always listens.....

Please Dr's, as you operate on any patient In the OR room please don't talk so much and act like it's no big deal because you've done this hundreds of times, family's emotions are connected to the person you have under anistesia,we pray,worry,cry,get upset stomachs,and much more, we all have a story in this world and generations of family that care about us sick & injured folks !

Very good orthopedic surgeon
December 21, 2017
Do not wait to see a specialist and love on pain. I wish I had gone in months sooner, as soon as I started to have the pain in my knee. I am so happy with the advice and help Dr. Lewis provides that I will go back to him in the future and recommend him to others even thinking something might be wrong. Go in, get it checked, and get advice with a plan. Dr. Lewis and his amazing team can help with that.
December 20, 2017
I would tell them he is a doctor that you can trust and he is a brilliant surgeon.
December 15, 2017
Dr Lewis was very patient with me and gave me multiple options to try. Which I appreciate!
