Patient Review of Dr. Clifton Lewis

"Dr. Lewis robotically repaired my mitral valve. I was released three days later. My level of care during hospitalization was excellent!"

-- Avery Clenney, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, Robotic Surgery, 01/29/2013

"Dr. Lewis’s team is so professional and wonderful. Dr. Lewis is a very nice man. His bedside manner is outstanding. He will sit and talk with you pre and post operative.

His use of the robot to repair my mitral and tricuspid valves seemed to get me back to work very fast. Post-op care at the University of Alabama in Birmingham was just outstanding. I cannot say enough good things about my experience at UAB. From the doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, physical therapists, aids, and housekeeping staff. Everyone was professional, cordial, and cared wonderfully for me as a post operative patient.

My experience was much better than I had expected and that I hoped for. I am grateful to God and this team for repairing my heart and recovering me back to good health."
