I frequently recommend Vanderbilt Medical and Dr Lewis to my friends in need of a kidney specialist. I've got two close friends who now use Dr Lewis.

I live in a suburb of Washington DC. I have access to some of the best medical facilities in the United States. For Nephrology, I travel back to Nashville and Vanderbilt because of Dr. Lewis. She is the best! I have recommended her numerous times during my 26 years as her patient.
