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.

Great doctor but parking is 3 dollars. F and F will want free parking when visiting a doctor. 3 dollars for one hour. Highway robbery! Driving out is a long wait. Remember alot of us old people can't figure out you stupid machines.

PIH is the Best!

Didn't feel the provider was overly concerned with my problem...attributed problem to age and weight rather than requesting further examination. I didn't feel comfortable enough to speak or ask questions freely. Will be seeking appointment with a different doctor.

Highly recommended, great facilities, great staff!
March 27, 2020
I would definitely use a virtual visit again.
March 24, 2020
I took my mom to her appointment, the only problem is we were a week early! The receptionist told me to wait so he could find out if my mom could still be seen since there weren't many patients in the waiting room. Dr. Lewis said yes! Thank you for accommodating us even when it was our mistake. We appreciate it. :-)

I don't have one comment. I left there unsatisfied. Problem not solved. Makes me not want to go to a doctor anymore. I waited a long time to go. This is why. I feel like I am just a number to them. Not getting to the root of the problem. Like my pain is made up. Who is running the show here the doctors or the insurance companies. Do we care about the patients anymore? Yes, share my comments.
March 12, 2020

December 19, 2019
Provider seemed disinterested in helping patient with symptoms presented and patient felt as if dr. Had no interest in investigating to confirm what was the cause of pain. Took zero time to even begin to familiarize himself with patient history.

He has a very positive outlook .
