William B. Lewis, M.D.

Dr. Lewis was born in Brooklyn NY., and raised in Philadelphia, PA. A career in medicine was an early choice, largely influenced by the example of his father, a practicing Philadelphia internist. That decision led him to Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA, where, as a premed student, he earned his degree in French. After completing his college degree, Dr. Lewis spent a year studying at the Sorbonne, University of Paris. He studied literature, theater, and philosophy.

After completing his Medical degree at the State University of New York at Syracuse, an internship in Long Island, NY, and a year-long research fellowship at New York University, Dr. Lewis began his residency in ENT at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. In Rochester he was fascinated with the ear and hearing-not only with the array of diseases that affect this organ, but with the microsurgical methods that are currently in use to address these problems. This new interest led him to pursue further training in otology and neurotology (medical and microsurgical management of hearing and balance disorders) at the Florida Ear and Sinus center.

Humanitarian medicine and relief work are of great interest to Dr. Lewis as well. In May of 2000, he was awarded the American Academy of Otolaryngology -Head and Neck surgery's humanitarian fellowship award. With their support, as well as that of the Ear Research Foundation and the PRASAD Project, he traveled to India. He spent one year in an impoverished region there, and helped to develop clinical services in Ear, Nose, and Throat for a population of over 200,000 people. This was a highlight in Dr. Lewis' career.

While Dr. Lewis sees many patients for very specific problems, his approach is patient-centered, and broad enough to include the entire person in the solution. He feels it is his highest duty and honor to serve his community and patients with Love and Compassion. Dr. Lewis is also fluent in Spanish.
