The service of the staff as well as the provider was great except that we have waited a little longer on the medicine prescribed to claim from the pharmacy on the first floor of the facility.
May 13, 2021
The x_ray technician needs a bit of help in how to communicate with patients.he called me from the x_ray room to outside in rhetoric waiting area. I didnt even know he was speaking to me. Could have been a bit more pleasant. Im not used to having someone call me from another room with his back to me.

From start to finish, the PIH staff handled this encounter efficiently. If you could bring the same efficiency into your gastrointestinal treatment group, PIH would become the best of the best healthcare provider on the West coast! Well done.

Great Doc
April 09, 2021
I'm very happy with my visit. Doctor gave me choices for treatment and explained them to me. Now I'm waiting to get set up for surgery.
April 07, 2021
Dr Lewis has been my doctor since 2016when he gave me a new knee and a better life style. I trust his advice regarding my current joint problem as well.
March 23, 2021
I was able to find out what care is needed for my trigger finger problem.
March 19, 2021
I was given proper treatment after being told that I was supposed to have carpal tunnel surgery, and I'm given an injection. So I feel like you're mandating me instead of actually giving me proper treatment. I don't know if it's because I don't have a PPO or medical maybe because I pay for an HMO. I don't know, but it would be nice if I we're actually taking seriously as a real patient. Thank you.
March 19, 2021
I was seen and taken care in a very respectful and timely manner Thank You
March 18, 2021
The doctor was very patient, very knowledgeable, and took his time explaining everything.

March 12, 2021

March 10, 2021
Highly professional and caring
March 09, 2021
I was there too long. I was there 3 1/2 hours waiting until I got seen.
March 05, 2021
Dr. Lewis got an x-ray of the right away and he showed the x-rays to me on his computer screen and not only that he's let me take a picture of it so that I have it for future reference.
March 05, 2021
Hi, Dr. Lewis is excellent. He's going to be doing three additional surgeries on me. I wouldn't have anybody but him. He taking care of me. I feel very blessed and safe at his charge, and I work with a lot of doctors, but he is beyond. Thank you. Bye.
March 03, 2021
Pleasant consultation, I liked it !!
March 02, 2021
Thank you very much for your attention and professionalism. Thank you for your patience.
February 26, 2021
He didn't wash his hands when he arrived in the patient room, not before or after he touched my hands. His mask was slipping off his nose throughout the consultation, and he picked it up twice by pinching it with his fingers and putting it back on. He didn't wash his hands after that, either. He gave me the impression that I was making a big deal out of nothing. If it was nothing, I would not have been at the doctor's office.
February 24, 2021
Dr Lewis. And staff very courteous and professional, great experience
February 23, 2021
Yes, the only concern I had is they didn't take my blood pressure or weigh me and that was my only concern.
February 12, 2021
The doctor needs to pay more attention to the patient because you talk to them and seems like they just try to listen, but they don't do much. They need to pay more attention to the patient.
February 10, 2021
Dr. Lewis was very considerate. I'm very scared of needles, and he made me feel very comfortable with the way he gave me my shot, and talked me through it.
February 03, 2021
Dr. Lewis is very personable and makes you feel at ease. Thank you to everyone..you are all great.

January 26, 2021
The doctor listened and took care of me while I was in his care, but gave me some advice that in affected the healing of my hand. That's the biggest complaint I had.
January 07, 2021
Dr. David Lewis is a wonderful and amazing individual who really cares for all his patience. I have had the pleasure of being under Dr. Lewis' care for almost three years...I don't know how I lasted so long without him. HE IS THE BEST!
January 06, 2021
Hi, I was happy with the see Dr. Lewis. I'm still having some pain. So I probably will need to set up another appointment to be checked over just to make sure. It took a long time to I should leave and get the splint that was actually ordered. I had to follow up several times. I know that's outside the per view of the doctor because I should be that was handled through an independent contractor. But eventually I was able to I should be going and do that personally and and pick up splint. Okay. Thank you.

Thank you for everything. We are very happy and thank you for your advice. Thanks again. Bye.
