Dear Dr. Lewis,
I write to express my gratitude to your for restoring my vision. How very happy this healing has made me. It has given me a new lease on life & for this, I extend to you my profound thanks.
What a joy it is to have my full vision intact, to have & enjoy a panoramic view before me, to see vibrancy of color, to feel totally present, unencumbered by blocked vision. I find myself rejoicing in all that I see & for this miraculous change, I thank you.
I thank you, too, for respecting my wish not to have a medical examination, for not admonishing me for not attending to the condition sooner. Your sensitivity in these matters is very much appreciated.
I wish you continued success &, again, offer my heartfelt thanks.
Thank you for all the special attention you showed my son. You made the experience as pleasant as it could be under the circumstances. You guys were great!!!
A heartfelt thanks for all that you did
Dr. Lewis you are the best
Dear Dr. Lewis,
Thank you for your excellence!
"I can see clearly now!"
May God continue to bless you in your practice.
Dear Doctor Lewish!,
Have a happy and Healthy New Year!
And thank you very much for everything.

Many Thanks To You
Dr. Lewis & Crew,
Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what you did.
My Mom, Mary past away peacefully on 1/12/10. She thought you & your team were great & so did I. May God continue to bless all of you.
Dear Dr. Lewis & Stupendous Staff,
How can I begin to thank you for the gift of perfect vision? You all made me feel like a member of the family. Please enjoy this small token of my gratitude - gingerbread chocolate chip cookies.
Dear Dr. Lewis and Staff,
Thank you for your gracious and thorough examination of my eyes. I feel confident that each and every one of you is highly skilled and has my best interests in mind. I am certain that I will be in good hands throughout my treatment and look forward to seeing the results.
You brought a big smile to my face. Thanks!
I just wanted to send a note to thank all four of you for your kindness and care over the past few weeks. I have never been to a dr.'s office where I have received such personal and genuine concern. I appreciated all the support you gave me and thank you for the "new world" you have opened up for me!
WIth many thanks...
Dear Dr. Lewis
Thank you for your attention.I appreciate it so much!. Hope to see you in four months.
Dear Dr. Lewis
How can I thank you for performing the LASIK Surgery on my eye as a gift to me? I can't so I am praying that the Lord will bless your for it. His rewards surpass anything this world has to offer. So, I have asked Him to give you the wisdom to renew my eye so that it will be able to function again without the annoyance of a "dry eye" and to be the shape of a basketball that both of us can say the Lord has done great things for us.
I have a song that I just love and even though you might not know it and never heard it sung, I would like you to read the words. It is called "My Tribute".
How can I say thanks for the things You have done for me - Things so undeserved, yet You give to prove Your love for me? The voices of a million angels could not express my gratitude - All that I am and ever hope to be, I owe it all to Thee.
To God he the glory, To God he the glory, To God be the glory for the things He has done. With His blood He has saved me; With His power He has raised me; To God be the glory of the things He has done.
Just let me live my life;Let it be pleasing, Lord, to Thee. And should I gain any praise Let it go to Calvary. With His blood He has saved me; With His power He has raised me; To God be the glory of the things He has done.
If you would like to hear the music that goes with these words, just let me know. I have a tape with my son singing this song who has a beautiful voice.
I can only express my gratitude for your generous time and expertise in restoring my eye by sharing the love of my Lord with you. May He bless you exceedingly abundantly above all that I can ask or think.
In His Matchless Love,
Dear Dr. Lewis
I'm the guy who had lunch with Isaac Asimov and you gave me new vision with a pair of STAAR intraocular lens.
I'm grateful for your surgical skills and care which you have afforded me over the past month.
I felt very supported & cared for by you and your staff at Kremer.
Feel free to use me as a reference anytime.
God Bless You,
Thanks To All of You, Only the warmest "Thank You" will do For people as nice And as special as you!
Thank you so much for a wonderful Surgery. Everyday my wife asks me why I am smiling so much. I tell her it's because my vision is the best it has ever been without glasses or even after the R.K. in 1996. The results are much better then I ever expected and I need no pilocarpine. There has been no pain or discomfort and Dr. Fabriziani says my vision can only get better. You are the best. And thanks to your staff for making me feel comfortable during the surgery.
Feel free to use me as a reference if anyone has any doubts about LASIK.
Dr. Lewis & Staff
Just had to write a brief note of “Thanks” for making the unsettling prospect of LASIK surgery such a “walk in the park”!
I cannot recall the last time I encountered such a dynamic combination of professional competency, true compassion and good old fashioned genuine warmth from any service provider. You are all to be commended.
Thank you, once more, and count on me to refer anyone considering the procedure your way.
With thanks to your for all your help and for a job well-done.... your special contribution was an all-important one!
Thanks for doing such a good job.
Thank you so much for everything. Everyone was wonderful and very kind.
I am writing this the next day without glasses and contacts. How wonderful!!!
The LASIK experience at your office was really fun due to your wonderful staff.
The results are great!!
Thank you again
I am both amazed and grateful for you and your staff as you entered my life for but a few minutes and changed it (hopefully) forever!
It is three weeks since my surgery and my vision has been clear and there was no pain, no halos, no complaints, only praise! I would love to be a part of your staff ... [and] will continue to coax every eyeglass/contact wearer to just DO IT!
Many MANY thanks,
I just wanted to express my sincerest thanks for all you have done. I was very scared to have my eyes operated on, but your supportiveness and kind words (plus the valium!) put me at ease.
Your staff was professional and friendly and are an asset to your practice.
I have been spreading the word and I am sure you will be getting several new clients as a result.
I've shown everyone at work my video and they think it's "cool".
Thank you again,
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent job that you did on my eyes. I have had (2) follow up appointments with Dr. Myers, and he tells me that I have 20/20 in both eyes now, that is incredible.
It is amazing what modern technology can do today, it feels incredible to wake up and see without reaching for my glasses, I cannot remember the last time I could do that since I have been wearing glasses since about the 4th grade.
Thank you again, anyone that I know who is thinking of having this procedure done, I recommend you highly over the other centers. I thought you and your staff were highly professional and you made me feel very at ease and comfortable with the procedure.
With sincere gratitude,
About a month ago I had laser surgery on both eyes to correct my vision up close and far away.
I can't tell you how satisfied I am with the results!It is so easy to pick up a book or newspaper and just start reading without fumbling around for a pair of glasses. Right now typing this letter on the computer is an achievement without the use of my glasses. I can remember turning 40 and my eyesight deteriorated quickly forcing me to spend thousand of dollars on prescription bifocals, reading glasses, and contacts--nothing ever felt right on my eyes.
I will be 48 next year and my eyesight is just as good as it was before I turned 40 years old.
Your staff was very helpful and professional, I felt confident that I was in safe hands from the moment I entered your office.
I have told all my friends about my surgery and they were all amazed with my results. Thank you again for helping to make my life alot more enjoyable without the use of glasses.
Thank you to you and all your staff for allowing me to see clearly again. I can’t believe how well I can see. I was very nervous about getting the LASIK done but Sue really calm me down an spent a long time on the phone answering my many questions.
It’s hard to know where to go to get something like this done. Your eyesight is so precious. I really felt like I was in good hands with you and your staff and appreciate all the time and the care post-surgery.
Once again thank you – this is the greatest gift I have ever been given. To see everything and everyone around me clearly again.
Where do I begin? Did you ever reached point in your life when you mentally make a list of things that you would like to do in order to improve the quality of your life? Well, right up with the whirpool/jacuzzi and having Kevin Kline realize that I was the gal for him, was the dream that someday I could have laser surgery to correct my vision.
For once I was in the right place at the right time and my dream has come true thanks to you.I'm telling you-this is an unbelievable procedure! Since the surgery went so effortlessly and was, for the most part, totally pain free, it's easy to forget that I ever had surgery and that one morning I just woke up being able to see better than when I was 18 years old!Thank you so much for making this happen. The quality of my life has improved tremendously, and I have you to thank. Please feel free to use me as a reference anytime. I believe in the surgery, but most of all, after years of wonderful medical care at your office, I believe in Dr. Lewis and his genuine interest in the well-being of his patients.With sincere appreciation--
Your friend and patient-for-life,
I am both amazed and grateful for you and your staff as you entered my life for but a few minutes and changed it (hopefully) forever! It is three weeks since my surgery and my vision has been clear and there was no pain, ho halos, no complaints, only praise! I would love to be a part of your staff in the Mt. Laurel location working with new clients (I left a resume with Dr. Levine) but will continue to coax every eye glass/contact wearer to just DO IT!
Many Many Thanks,
Just a note of thanks. It has been a true blessing for me to be able to see very well. I might add without glasses! It is most amazing to wake up in the morning & be able to see the clock across the room! I guess I'll no longer be needing those "sleeping glasses" I mangled into the perfect shape of my head! My stories of satisfaction could go on and on and I'd never been able to express my gratitude to both of you for your expertise, professionalism & kindness.
At this time, I would be remiss if I didn't mention and sing the praises of a particular member of the LASIK team - Sue Cross. From the very first time I called your office for an evaluation, Sue has been a wealth of information. She has worn the hat of patient advocate, educator, and "hand holder" during the procedure - these are only a few-of the many attributes she brings to work everyday! Sue's professionalism never wavered. Her enthusiasm is infectious, her compassion and sincerity is so clearly evident. I've had the opportunity to observe Sue in action on several occasions and I've overhead more than one patient comment on her manner - "Isn't she great", "she's so nice", "Sue is wonderful" are some of the comment I've heard and whole heartedly agree with!! From a personal standpoint Sue makes me feel comfortable and at ease whenever I come into the office. Sue is a treasure and a tremendous asset to your team. After having my LASIK procedure done there I'd only refer to you - as far as I'm concerned your whole team is wonderful!Again, please accept my heartfelt thanks-to all of you!
To the entire staff, your skilled
professionalism and warmth were
for changing my life.
You went all out......
and the results were outstanding!
I don't usually send cards to my
doctor's but I really like you guys!
Tiggers Love Christmas!
Hope yours is merry!
Once in a while someone touches a life and causes a great change to occur in that life. I can't help but feel that way about my recent experience with you and your organization. Because of the perfect sight that you and Dr. Lare patiently worked so hard to obtain for me, what with all the conflicting readings with my overcorrected eye ware and my astigmatism as well as my nearsightedness my life has definitely changed.
No longer do I see the world through a glass darkly (Nothing wrong with a little prose) but it is spring and the colors and clarity is nothing short of awesome. This is just a small part of the change. If you think about it every waking moment for the rest of my life will be better because of your dedication to your profession awesome huh?.
I've heard it said that a company's lifeblood is it's employees and it certainly shows in your case. Each of your employees radiates to the patient something very rare in the business world. It's difficult to describe, but very evident, it’s a special concern for the patient and their fears, with answers to our question that bring comfort and a calming effect. I saw this objectively as I watched Sue, Bev, Anita, and Dr. Lare interact with the other patients as I myself was on the receiving end also. Dr. Lewis you have very special employees that are a credit to you and your organization. I cannot say enough about my experience and I am recommending you to every person I talk to that wears glasses and contacts.Dr. Lewis, I wish you only the best in this endeavor and thank you once again for understanding my special concerns and for making my world clearer.
I can’t thank you enough for the kindness and patience, you and your staff showed me during my LASIK procedure. I was extremely apprehensive but your staff was professional and answered all my questions and calmed my fears (the Valium helped too!)
I would highly recommend you and your staff to anyone considering laser eye surgery. I especially want to thank Sue, for holding my hand throughout the procedure and explaining in detail what was occurring. Thank you again for everything. I can actually see clearly without my contacts of glasses.
Here is a picture of my wedding day – that’s me seeing perfectly, without glasses or contacts. I had my surgery on November 2, 2000 and it is the best thing I’ve ever done!
Thank you so much for doing such a great job. Everyone throughout this process was not only professional, but caring and fun to be around.
I have recommended Advanced Laser Vision to all of my friends.
Hopefully, my husband will get up his nerve and have this procedure done!
Thank you again for everything!
I just wanted to thank you for your generosity. You have made the world clear for me (without glasses)! It is a miracle everyday that I wake up and can see clearly.
Thanks so very much.
I just wanted to thank you for the LASIK surgery that you performed on my eye. It is so nice not to have to wear contacts of glasses. Dr Lewis, Barry and all of the staff gave me a gift of a lifetime, my sight. The girls in the operating room were tremendous. You all are wonderful and I would recommend you to anyone.
I just wanted to drop a quick note to let you know how happy. I am with the results of my LASIK surgery. You were all such a big support and so caring!! I will recommend your office to anyone interested in having the surgery done.
P.S. – Having someone holding your hand definitely made it so much easier!!
Thank you so much for performing laser surgery on me. I thought I would never be free from glasses and contacts.
Kristine and I would like to take you out for dinner.....
Thank you for you kind gift of surgery.
Thank you! Since you operated on my eyes, I feel like a new person! You gave me the freedom to see as well as I can see! I wish could find the right words to express my joy!
Just a quick not to say thank you so very much for providing me with the ability to see clearly again without the use of spectacles! When I was a little girl, long before corrective vision ws even thought of, I used to long and dream of being able to see without horrid glasses perched on my nose. I so much wished it would come true in my lifetime – you made it possible and I thank you.Enclosed, you will find a gift certificate for your use. This is a complimentary haircut provided by yours truly at my place of business in Royersford. You also fixed my brother-in-law’s eyes and he and my sister own Camelot. Any business cards or promotional material you would like to bring with you will be welcome and put to good use – I am constantly promoting you to my clients and friends anyway!I hope to see you at Camelot. It would be a treat for me to have you see me in my normal mode, and not looped out on valium and fear! The professionalism and friendliness of you and your staff went a long way in making me feel comfortable, and once again I thank you so much.
It was good “seeing” you today. Below is my quote. If it sounds like everyone else’s quote, let me know – I can change it. Feeling free to cut if it’s too long.“The procedure was quick and virtually pain-free. I now have perfect vision and couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. I was the greatest gift I could have every given myself.”If the last sentence sounds corny, please delete it. For a lifetime of not glasses, it was the best money I ever spent. I’m trying to say that most people today (especially moms) do so much for others that they often neglect themselves. Laser Vision is personal.
I can’t wait to go scuba diving – I wasn’t able to see the fish before! Good luck on your trip. What you are doing is very admirable. I ordered a back issue of the 12/24 Inquirer for you. I know the people who work there. I’ll mail you the story when it comes in.
I think it best if we leave my job title out of testimonial. My sister Janice is very interested in a consult with you and if she goes thru with LASIK Surgery she can mention my name and title in her testimonial. Don’t worry, her husband owns an animal hospital in NJ and can well afford the cost.
If you use photo of me please use the one that is not close up I trust you to change my quote if you have a stronger point to make!
Kathryn of Dresher is seen observing LASIK surgery on her son Stephen. “I was overwhelmed by the knowledgeable supportive staff and the state of the art equipment. I felt complete confidence in Dr. Lewis and highly recommend him to family and friends who are considering LASIK and want the best outcome”“Finding a knowledgeable Ophthalmologist operating in a safe, sterile environment utilizing the latest technology was of critical importance to me. The LASIK surgery took minutes and was completely pain free. After experiencing the caring, supportive staff at Advanced Laser Vision
I ask myself (“Why did I wait so long?)”
Thank you, Dr. Lewis for answering all my questions”

Just wanted to thank you again for helping me see again without glasses,
P.S. You have a great personality. I loved the way you presented yourself to me.
Thank you so much for your kindness and help in letting me see without glasses or contact. It has made an amazing difference in my life.
I'm glad my grandfather knew such a talented surgeon.

We pause to express gratitude and to recognize your support in our work.
Our hope is that you and your family have a safe and enjoyable
I was there today as a patient. It was my first visit. I was a little nervous at first, that soon left. From the moment I came in the office I was comfortable, the ladies at the fron desk have a great personality. The doctors who examined my eyes were great. Then I met you. All my worries disappeared. Everything was explained so I could understand it. I am looking forward to my surgery. The packet for surgery is the best. The young lady explained it all with patience. Thank you all very much.
God has surely blessed your hands and your mind and your heart so that you can accomplish such wonderful work in your chosen field of eye surgery. You are a tribute to the talents God has given you.
My eye surgeries were both so successful and I am enjoying wonderful vision, thanks to you. I felt I would never see you again so I wanted you to know how pleased I am and how I have been singing your praises. My vision is astoundingThank you and God bless you!
Friends are forever
Thanks a bunch!
Your thoughtfulness was a blessing.
Without your help, I would not see as I do.
We wish to thank you all for being so nice to us. Keep up the good work. Say hello to everyone.
Good Health to All
Alan & Ann
Since I haven't had the chance to see you since you finished my second cataract surgery and couldn't hug you, a now will have to do.
You have given me a most precious gift. I am seeing better than I ever have and everything is so bright and crisp! I'm still amazed at seeing like this, without lenses or glasses! It's truly the best thing that happened to me since my daughter was born 33 years ago.
Thank you so much for your extraordinary skill, patience and good humor. It made me very comfortable with a procedure I approached with trepidation.
If you ever need a testimonial, I'll be more than happy to provide.. you're wonderful!
P.S. It's even easier to put on eye makeup now.
Thanks! You're the Greatest!
...And I'm The Grateful-est.To the most kindest and caring people I've ever met.
Thank you and your team for taking all the time necessary to examine my eyes and for sending your results to Dr. Marberger to prescribe glasses.
The new lenses are excellent giving me something like 20/20 and making street sign reading a snap.
As you all know excellent vision is like being in a whole new world!
Dear Dr. Lewis and Staff,
I appreciate the patience and care given to me prior to and during my eye surgery.
Everyone was professional as well as personable.
I will be recommending your office to my family and friends.
Knowing you are a busy man. I felt led to send you a cassette tape of the song I gave the word to in my letter of appreciation for your kind service to me. You can put it in your car cassette compartment on your way to work. It takes only 3 - 5 minutes. I thought the music with the words made my thanks to you more meaningful.
I also made cinnamon buns for you! Try them and share them with your family if you like or your secretarial staff at Jenkintown. I did give some to your staff at Phoenixville. Wishing you the best in you labor of love in making others see better.
I just wanted to wish you all Happy Holidays. This is the first time that I'll me able to see the real beauty of the season. Thanks to you. You have given me the best gift I have ever received.... my eyesight!!!!
Thanks again & God Bless you All!

Hello Dr Lewis,My name is Eliza and you met with me a couple days ago regarding my severely dry eyes and cornea problems. I just wanted to give you a big THANK YOU for helping me. I truly appreciate your kind support and genuine concern for my eyes. I feel so much better already! I promise to carefully folow your instructions for wearing contacts the right way : ) I have learned my lesson!! Thank you again for everything! Best Eliza
Thanks for your help. I love you for helping me. It's like having you as a doctor but even more for your friendship. I know your ready to help me more. Thats a really good friend.
Love you for a really good friend.Dee
Dr. Lewis & Staff,
Thank you very much for all the care I received throughout my surgery. Your staff were wonderful. very kind and helpful. This made for a ver positive and pleasant experience. I know this surgery will result in a positive difference in my life.
Thank you again for your fine care, generosity and time.
Dear Dr. Lewis and Dr. Devlin,
I want to thank you both for your kind caring and professional approach to my treatment.
I can't express the emotions I felt the morning after my surgery when I took off my eye patches and could see everything in great detail. Yes, I cried! LASIK surgery has far exceeded my expectations.
Good Luck to both of you in any future endeavors.
Fondly and seeing 20/20,
SusanPS. I don't even need reading glasses - Yet!
Thank you one million times and then some.
You are the "BEST"-ever! This has been a very trying year for me and you brought me through each and every time. I can't thank you enough
Thank You - Thank You - ThankYou
Have the Best of Holidays
Peace on earth in all seasons and for all time Happy HolidaysFrom, Paula
I seen this little girl and it reminded me of my first transplant in the early 90's from a young child and I wish to thank again for the sight in my rt. eye 40 stitches and still 4(wow) in there.
Now I wish to thank you for your recent operation of my left eye, Dr Barry Fabrizini says what a beautiful eye, Harvey you must have stepped in some horse poop some where, no it was (Dr. James S. Lewis MD) that done the beautification, again I thank you and may God bless you and your hands.
a best friend too
With so many thanks for so many things.
I appriciate all you have done for me. It was nice to arrive home and see your envelope with the box of drops too. See you in November.
I feel the need to thank you for my new vision in my right eye. Hopefully and confidently I expect to enjoy many more surprises after my left eye surgery. I can see things I havent seen well in recent years, even with my glasses clear clock numbers across the room, beads of water on the shower wall, dirt and dust in places I readily ignored, reading books without eye strain and easier threading of my sewing seedless, to name a few.
But there was a shocking down side after my first reflection from my mirror. I found a much older looking me than I previously knew, with more gray in my hair than I realized, and very tired looking eyes surrounded by more and deeper wrinkles than before. Now I must come to grips with the fact that I am 83 years old in spite of how great I feel.
But my gratitude remains as I accept my new old look. God bless your with continued special talents to help others see better.
First let me thank you and your staff for the wonderful treatment I have received and continue to receive. I know that I made the proper choice by coming to ALV for my procedure.
Thanks for your time
There are no words to describe how great you and your staff are. I called on Monday and they got me in for a quick check on Tue. I definitely chose the right place to have my surgery done. Again thank you so much for the support and the caring. I am very optimistic and will be as patient as needs to be for a great outcome.
Thank You and your Staff
I have been remiss in my duties. I never thanked you for your generous gift. Truly, perfect vision is the best gift I could have ever received.
I do not remember a time when I was able to see without glasses. They were always slipping down, fogging up, getting sat upon and generally making my life miserable.
The same is true for contact lenses (When I could wear them). But my eyesight got so bad that I couldn't even wear contacts anymore. The LASIK procedure was a miracle! You may not know it, but I sing your praises every time I wake up in the middle of the night and look at the clock and can see what time it is. I tell everyone I know how marvelous it is to be able to see the difference between my shampoo and conditioner in the shower. I was even able to play in the snow without worrying about losing a contact or having my glasses steam up.
So, thank you. For being professional....for being informative....for being great at what you do. Thank you for being so helpful and friendly. Thank you for having the answers to all of my questions. Thank you for giving me my sight.
How easy it would be for me to say that I haven't had the time to properly thank you for all of your help. I could even feign amnesia or pretend that I haven't been taking my Ginko Biloba. But none of that is true. I don't know why I haven't thanked you before now, but I hope to correct that situation right here.
You have been my port in the storm. From the very beginning I knew that I could count on you to answer all of my questions and allay all of my fears. You were there to hold my hand through everything. Even now, almost 6 months after my surgery, you are still there when I need help.
Thank you so much for being a wonderful person. It shows how much you love what you do, and how much you love helping people. I hope you know how much I appreciate and love you for everything you have done to help me. I don't think there are enough words in the dictionary to express my thanks. But I hope that in some small way I have been able to convey to you how I feel.
Words can not begin to express my gratitude for how you changed my life.
God gave you a gift a wonderful gift.
Please continue your work. The gift of sight is wonderful. God Bless you.
*If you ever need me to help in any way please call me day or night!
"How did you get so good at making people happy?"
PS. Drinks on me!
How do I begin to say thank you for your gift? This card can only be a small start. In a short 24 hours I am simply amazed at my vision, all because of the generous gift of your time, skill and expertise. Please, at least, let Beth and I try to show our appreciation by letting us take you, your wife, and your family to dinner, or wherever you choose. Thank you just isn't enough to express our appreciation.
God scattered stars into
space, He planned treasures
for us to discover...
This is for everyone involved in making my
surgery such a relaxed and efficient experience.
You are a wonderful blend of people
who make it work.
Thank you so much.
Thanks for taking care of me.
Your staff is a wonderful group of people.
Kind, friendly and sincere.
Will see you soon.
Dear Dr. Lewis,
Just a note of thanks, for the wonderful care you gave me.
Best wishes to you for continued success in the future.
Thank you and may God bless you always
Hi Beverly and Thank You!
I just don't know quite how to say thank you to someone who has just restored my eyesight.
Saying thank you seems somewhat "inadequate".
Today I realized how bright I can see colors, and how clear everything appears. It's like a whole new world has been opened up to me, thanks to your surgical skills.
I never doubled your ability or skills for a moment I just want you to know I realized you are "super intelligent" and have worked hard to achieve your skills. How fortunate for me to be on the receiving end of what you do best!
It is absolutely incredible to think I had surgery less than a week ago. There is absolutely no discomfort and no telltale signs. It just wipes me out, thinking about how you cans accomplish such a maneuver
I appreciate your words of encouragement and patience with me. Both you and Barry were very supportive and kind.
Barry and you are a great team! It's very easy for me to "market and sell" your skills when I'm being treated by two of the Delaware Valley's greatest Doctors.
I just wanted you to know I'm a very grateful and appreciative patient.
Thank you Doctor Lewis
for giving me back
I dial first.
(when I'm really grateful, I send a card!)
For all the good care I received and all your patients with my phone calls. Thank you
Enclosed please find a referral form from my primary doctor to cover the visit to your office on Friday, October 16.
I want to express my thanks to you and Bev for such outstanding service. You both treated me as if you had know me for years, which made me feel very comfortable during a time when I was not really feeling like myself.
Thanks again, and should you need anything further from my insurance company, please let me know.
Thank you for the thoughtfulness and caring your had for me during my two cataract operations.
I really enjoyed the office visits. The courtesy and laughs I shared with you and Beverly make it seem more social than medical.
Both my "Driver" and I left felling very happy.
Wishing you a Happy Holiday and the best for the coming New Year.
and Son Byron
P.S. The face of this Holiday greeting is a replica of a painting 18" x 24", in oil, that I did for my niece. Last Christmas she surprised me with the reproduction and mounting of that painting I hope you like it.
You have our eternal gratitude. Never in our wildest dreams did we even think Ron would ever see out of his eye. He can't thank you enough.
As far as we are concerned, you performed a miracle. We look forward to your doing Ron's cataract surgery in the future. Bev was also a great help in getting everything accomplished and we thank her also.
You are the best.

Dear Dr. Lewis & Bev,
You're very special people!
Thank you for your kindness & compassion.
here grows a bountiful harvest
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving
Dear Dr. Lewis
My special thanks for the care and sincere concern towards my mother. You made all the difference in her surgery and for that we are most appreciative.
It was our pleasure to have met you.
With Warm Regards,
Just a note of thanks! You have been there
with me through thick and thin. You are more
than a Great Doctor, you're also a wonderful friend.
Thanks for all you've done!
I really do appreciate you
HE MADE ME FEEL LIKE
A COMPLETE NUMBSKULL
"HE MAKES ME TINGLE - CLEAR
DOWN TO MY FINGERS"
"ME TOO - I TINGLED FOR THREE DAYS"
"BLUE IS REALLY HIS COLOR"
OF COURSE, HE HAD TO USE A LOT OF NOVACAINE
Again, my most sincere expression of thanks for the wonderful care, not only medically but emotionally, that you directed towards my mother. Your extremely conscientious attitude was most reassuringduring this second, more involved, surgery. We truly feel privileged to have met you and you will always remain most special in our lives.
Your deep interest in your patients obviously carries through to Beverly. Her kindness and concern was and will be always appreciated. It is so rare
to find such compassion and true concern for ones fellow being. How very fortunate we have been!
With Warmth and Gratitude,
I wish all of you a very happy, healthy holiday season. I also want to thank all of you for the very special treatment that I received when ever I came into your office.
All you treat me so warm and friendly and I truly do care about all of you. Again I wish you a very warm, & happy holiday season.
Dear Doctor Lewis I do not think of you as a specialist or a millionaire but a wonderful doctor who knew the chances were slim but was willing to run the risk to give me sight again. It is a wonderful feeling to see again. I hope the things I do please you, they are meant to show my appreciation and thank you for all you did to give me sight again. I never lost faith in you and the results are wonderful..
Thank you dear doctor.

From a Grateful Patient Loretta
Words can never tell you how much your skills as an eye surgeon have helped by providing me with improved sight. That gift to enjoy life again by being able to see color as I nave never seen it before, to watch TV and so many other things that many people take for granted. It is my hope that you may continue to help and serve the people of Phoenixville. As you administer to others it must be gratifying to know that you can bring such joy and happiness into the lives of others. May you have a long and successful career .
I remove cataracts so people can see and if you trust me you will be glad that the surgeon named Lewis is the Dr. you had. He is honest, trustworthy, sincere and he will do his best.
My name is James Lewis and I am a Medical Doctor and an Ophthalmologist. One of my specialties is Cataract removal in order that my patients may have good eyesight. No age is too old to enjoy the rewards of a fall day with its bright colors.
Just a not of "thanks" for your assistance on my request for a letter from you. Even if I don't get this job, I've go enough confidence in myself now to go after others! I don't know if you say "People" magazines 7/21/97 issue, but there is an article in it about actor Mandy Patinken's bout with keratoconus. Thought you might be interested in reading it. I've highlighted passages which seemed like "deja vu" to me. He expressed similar feelings to mine. Additionally, since I think I'm a "success story", please feel free to contact me if another of your patients with keratoconus needs and ear or some support from me. Many thanks for getting me thus far (11+ mos. post-op). I can't believe how well I can see!
Blessings on your mother and father together with your wife for sharing you and your talents with us!
Your reference to your computer addition made me wonder what would be appropriate as a small toke of appreciation for your care "A Book of Luminous Things" might be just the thing to balance the technology of the computer and your profession.
Thanks for your very sensitive care.
Tom & Aliserna
It has been over a year now since we met.
How can I ever thank you for taking the chance with my eye. You have given me my life back.
I have been the lucky one to have such great and caring doctors such as you and Dr. Wulc.
You are one of my favorite appointments I need to keep.
I can never thank you so much.
There is hope and I'm not giving up!
I just wanted to thank you one more time for giving me new eye sight. I can see clearly now the fog has gone. I can see all the obstacles in my many. It is surely a bright bright sun shining day.
Thats sign language for THANK YOU!
I am writing this to explain why I picked
your office for my surgery.
I will be a devoted customer because of
your secretary. She's funny, smart and caring.
She cuts through all the bull####
and I am very grateful.
Anyone who would hire her is
very intelligent in my estimation.
I am in your waiting room following my Visual Field Test and a meeting with Bev.
She quietly and efficiently solved the billing problems (Aetna/U.S. Healthcare) which have disturbed be very much. I am always careful to have the referrals with me but in tow cases the paper work was mishandled and the necessary referral records were not sent to the U.S.H.C. - hence bills and letters
Apparently these things happened with previous persons in your office. I've been in touch with Cherry Hill referral office - Aetna/U.S. Healthcare received at least one bill from your office etc. ad nauseam.
Now you have a treasure of efficiency and helpfulness! Hallelujah!!
Treat her tenderly. For a skilled doctor a skilled support person is a must!! Congratulations!!
Thanks again for the gift of sight.
Many more happy and productive years.
No acknowledgment necessary, your
handwriting is on a par 2 mine.
Dear Dr. Lewis
A warm reminder at Christmastime that you have a very special place in my thoughts and in my heart!

Dr. Drs. Lewis and Myers,
Just a short note to thank you for all the time and courtesy you have provided during my examinations at your offices. I appreciate the thoroughness and your patience and I am sure we will get to the bottom of my vision problems. Your staff has been very helpful and this too is appreciated.
Thanks also for taking good care of Jack and good luck to Dr. Myers in Guatemala.
Thank you so much for a great surgery experience.
We appreciated you kindness.

Dear Doctor Lewis and Staff:
This not is to express my appreciation for your recent kindness during my LASIK surgery. When I walked into your office I was very nervous, but your staff put me at ease and made the procedure very pleasant. Having your nurse hold my hand and give me words of encouragement was a real comfort. The girls at the desk were wonderful and extremely courteous.
Thank you for making my LASIK surgery such a great experience. Needless to say, I am recommending your services to all my friends who wear glasses and contacts. You and your staff made it pleasant and enjoyable.
Thanks again, so very, very, much for your kindness and for having such a great staff.

I have been remiss in my duties. I never thanked you for your generous Gift. Truly, perfect vision is the best gift I could have ever received.
I do not remember a time that I was able to see without glasses. They were always slipping down, fogging up getting sat upon and generally making my life miserable. The same is true for contact lenses (when I could wear them). But my eyesight got so bad that I couldnt even wear contacts anymore.
The LASIK procedure was a miracle! You may not know it, but I sing your praises every time I wake up in the middle of the night and look at the clock and see what time it is. I tell everyone I know how marvelous it is to be able to see the difference between my shampoo and conditioner in the shower. I was even able to play in the snow without worrying about losing a contact or having my glasses steam up.
So, thank you. For being professional for being informative for being great at what you do. Thank you for being so helpful and friendly. Thank you for having the answers to all my question. Thank you for giving me my sight.

How easy it would be for me to say that I havent had the time to properly thank you for all of your help. I could even feign amnesia or pretend that I havent been taking my Ginko Biloba. But none of that is true. I dont know why I havent thanked you before now, bit I hope to correct that situation right here.
You have been my port in the storm. From the very beginning I knew that I could count on you to answer all of my questions and allay all of my fears. You were there to hold my hand through everything. Even now almost 6 months after my surgery, you are still there when I need help.
Thank you so much for being a wonderful person. It shows how much you love what you do, and how much you love helping people. I hope you know how much I appreciate and love you for everything you have done to help me. I dont think there are enough word s in the dictionary to express my thanks. But, I hope that in some small way I have been able to convey to you how I feel.
I would like to thank you for the very successful operations you preformed on my wife, Louise and myself. It is hard for a layman to understand how a skilled surgeon with the aid of a high tech laser can correct closed end glaucomas in the time it took me to go back and forth to the rest room. As of this date Louise is doing very well with her eyes. With respect to my cataract operation, I appreciated the wonderful group of pre-op personnel three nurses and two practical nurses who checked and prepared me for the operation. Most impressive to me was the operating room with all its complex equipment and the host of skilled medical personnel = anesthetist, nurses and the leader of the team, Dr. James Lewis, ophthalmologist. The organized setting into venous setup, heart monitor, oxygen, microscopic mini knife, ultrasonic source, eye drops, topical anesthesia, and wonderful high quality intraocular lens (IOL. The post operative care was excellent. The two male hospital volunteers were so helpful and encouraging.
What a can trust with my experience as a patient volunteering to help the twelve man in the Bronx V.A. hospital sand bagged in a darkened circular room recovering from their cataract operations.
God, the great physician, in his common grace has given good gifts to men skilled physicians and other health specialist and brilliant men who have developed the specialized equipment and pharmaceuticals that have revolutionized the field and successes of medical procedures.
Thank you also for your great sense of humor and your willingness to listen and spend quality time with your patients.
Good morning! Louise and I are scheduled for check ups with you on Wednesday, July 18, 2001 at 3:00PM. You did two closed end glaucoma operation on Louise and a right eye cataract operation on me. I am 76, Louise is 73. We look forward to a check up by you and your optometric colleague.
Enjoy the enclosed. You may remember I write you a long letter after my cataract operation and I have recommended you to many friends.

Dear Dr. Lewis,
I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to you and your staff for the excellent job you did restoring my vision. For the past 20 years, I had to wear glasses and now my vision is 20/20! I thought the office staff, and especially Dr. Myers, were very professional, kind, helpful, reassuring and patient. I am thrilled with the results and truly wish to thank you for helping me see the world clearly.
I am extremely pleased with my experience at Advance d Laser Vision and have already recommended you to about ten people. Feel free to call ( _____) email (__@____.net) or write to me if you have any questions or would like additional suggestions. Thank you again for an outstanding job!
A big thank you to the doctors and the office for taking good care of us old folks.
I for one, really appreciate the care and the way you made us comfortable.
Getting old is not for sissys!
Have a great Spring & Summertime.
Your thoughtfulness means so very much
Since you operate my right eye until now, many times I want to say something to thank you but, hesitated because my English is too bad!
In this Christmas season, I decide to write some words to thank you.
I admired your talent to heal my eye, almost 2 years over. I worked in the electric Department I can see clearly. Do accept my best and sincerest wishes for Christmas and New Year.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Words alone cant express my thanks for what you have done for Betty and I. Our family would like also to express their thanks. They told us how lucky we were to have such a Great Surgeon.
PS. I repeat it was well worth the 60 miles we had to drive to get a 20/20 vision!
Heres looking at you!!
Jim & Betty
I am first one of your many patients, writing to especially thank you for my two successful eye surgeries. Thanks to you and God, who I am sure you will agree guides you hands in every operation.
I also appreciated your good sense of humor which helps relax the patients.
God Bless You,
Grinnin from ear to ear!

I can see more than one star. Like New
Mr. F___ stopped by. He was in the area and just wanted to express his gratitude. He states that his vision has improved even more so since the surgery and he is just so grateful to you.
He mentioned that he is a basketball player and that you would recall him.
Thank you so very much!
I can really see again! Thanks so much for the superb work on my right eye.
For the last five years, I have visited four different Optometrists. I have also been examined by several Ophthalmologists.
I was not able to see properly on the outside or read the instruments in my car and boat, and I could not see traffic signals. However, I could see very well inside. No one seemed to know what was the matter.
Finally, after being examined by Dr. James S Lewis, he seemed to understand my problem and recommended this type procedure on cataracts and implants
After having both eyes operated on, I can now see perfectly. It seemed that Dr. Lewis was the only one that understood my problem.
I am very grateful that he was recommended to me.
The love the care the effort too.
Id like to thank each one of you and if I could thats what I would do.
Thanks a million
A million thanks to you.
Dr. Lewis and all who works with you.
My eyes were never better
Dr. Lewis youre on in a million!
And the whole family (I know my husband and son Joey thank you also).
Just a little note of thanks.
Your brilliant work on my eyes enables me to see for miles and read a newpaper. A BIG note of thanks.
Dr. Lewis & Staff
With sincere appreciation for you kindness.
My husband and I really appreciated your professional expertise in my operations and also your kind and caring manor.
Dear Dr. Lewis,
I wish to again express my gratitude for your willingness in taking responsibility and giving me confidence in having the surgery to restore sight in my right eye.
Just a small token of my appreciation.
Now, isnt that just like you_
Doing something nice that way?
It really meant an awful lot_
Thanks more than words can say!
May you have continued success.
Thank you enormously!
Thank you humongously!
Thank you tremendously!
(Just cant thank you enough!)
Dear Dr. Lewis and the rest of the staff.
Thanks to your expertise in your surgical field of corneas & implants, I was able to avoid those trees you see!
The only glasses I needed for this vacation were sunglasses & beer glasses!
It was just last year at this time when Paul and I were celebrating that Paul was given a new lease on life due to your expertise in restoring his vision.
Dr. Lewis I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the absolutely superb care you provided Paul. Last Autumn = those proved to be the best of times for us. Shortly after the holidays Paul met with ungodly challenges which ultimately his bravery could not match the ravages of diabetes. I thank you again.
Paul died June 16
Dr Lewis and Staff,
Just cant begin to tell you how very much your thoughtfulness meant.
Thank you so much for the beautiful flower arrangement. It was so nice of you to think of me during my recovery. Your kindness will always be remembered!
Just a few lines to acknowledge the wonderful service that was recently provided to my husband, and me by the Wills Eye Hospital Team.
It was a source of great relief to know that we were in such good hands during our door to door trip from our home to the Hospital. We cant begin to thank George enough for his courtesy.
Please mark us down as supporting this service and the care we received from the entire staff.
Thank you again.
Dorothy & Jack
Both George and John, who have driven us have been sensitive and caring, without making us feel handicapped. While I was coming home Oct. 29th. I heard John say he was leaving. He had driven people from 5a.m. on and was still picking up people in mid afternoon. Going from suburban to urban areas. This requires skilful alert people. I hope their work is properly appreciated and compensated.
