I really liked Dr. Lewis. It was a bit frustrating that we could only compare one of my x-rays because the other two that were taken at the main campus ED were totally blown out. The description of my fracture on my discharge paper was a bit more descriptive than what Dr. Lewis provided and sometimes that can cause me a little anxiety to see something described as rotated or at an angle and how that will impact my hand long-term, which we didn't cover in full detail.
