“To be the best that you can be, is a tremendous responsibility, which I take seriously. I have elected to limit the types of surgery I do, as no one can be the best at everything. I pride myself in that the quality of the surgeries I do is the best. I have hand-picked my staff to ensure the most perfect surgical experience for my patients.” – Eric Alden Lewis MD
