“My experience with Dr. Lewis was very good! She knew what she was doing and any questions I had she could answer right there on the spot, making my decisions easier. I knew exactly what needed to be done and what procedures was involved. My operation went very well and even after a year I am still am satisfied with the service and my knee feels very good. I also had to do physical therapy at COG and the staff there just made you feel like family and they took care of me very well. I can say I have made some lifetime friends during my time there. Keep up the great work COG doctors and staff!!! Thank you all!!”
