Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr seemed very rushed compared to past visits. He was in and out so fast, I didn't have a chance to ask all my questions. He rattled off instructions from a 6 page summary sheet so fast I couldn't absorb it all. Luckily, I took notes on my phone when he disappeared from the exam room.

The M.A. was very nice but not as cheerful as others; nothing bad to say at all about that really. Everyone is always very friendly in the office. I have been a patient here for almost 10 years so the staff have changed in the last few years and are a little less cheerful, but really no problems at all.

This was my first introductory visit with Dr. Lewis as I am switching providers. I also had a lower abdomen strain I thought was a hernia. My initial visit was scheduled 2 weeks out and the receptionist was able to schedule me in immediately which I very much appreciated. Good flow at reception desk & Dr. Lewis provided a good consult and exam!

Dr. Lewis always is 100% present when he is in the room with me. he listens, asks pertinent questions, very thorough and always tries to find a solution. I don't every feel like just "a number". I feel that who Dr. Lewis is and the quality of care that he provides is very rare these days.

I was undergoing congestive heart failure with my lungs filling up with fluid that caused incessant coughing to bring fluid from my lungs. A CatScan had showed the fluid fiillup. Dr Lewis and another doctor with [...] treated me for bronchitis instead, which was futile. I spent the next week in the hospital under the care of my cardiologist, and I am now home recuperating.

Dr Lewis walked me to the lab personally the first time I met him. I thought that he went overboard to make me feel welcome. I've enjoyed going to Dr Lewis for advise about my health and he always made me understand the severity or the impact of my condition. I'll be seeing him soon I'm sure.
