Dr. Caitlin Lewis was very courteous, respectful, patient, and knowledgeable of the functionality of the human body. After speaking with me to gain specific clarity of the onset of the injury, she proceeded with the examination to pinpoint the exact location of the injury. Upon the conclusion of the examination, she was able to provide the specific outcome and steps in moving forward. She went a step further and provided a visual to show me exactly where the injury was and a few choices for treatment. Once the plan of action was in place she scheduled my next appointment with her to see how I was progressing. I would highly recommend Dr. Lewis to my colleagues. She not only showed a passion for her profession but a joy to serve those in need of her services. Thank you Cleveland Clinic for the understanding of hiring Dr. Lewis to provide care for those of us that need it. Dr. Lewis, I wish you the very best as you continue to provide the best possible care saturated with love and kindness.
