PRIMARY CARE, DOCTOR OF OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE
Andrea Lewis was inspired to pursue a career as a medical provider after more than a decade of working in cardiac ultrasound. Most of the time, the patients she encountered were dealing with the aftermath of heart failure or a heart transplant. She found herself wanting a more preventative role in their care — a role in which she could help to prevent disease in the first place and promote a healthy lifestyle.
“I wanted to help people before they got to that point,” Dr. Lewis said. “By providing preventative care, I could help patients with their health in every stage of their life.”
Dr. Lewis, DO, MPH, was recently added to the Haxtun Health Clinic team and will begin visiting with patients as a family practice provider and osteopathic and manipulative/neuromusculoskeletal (OMT) specialist. She will be available for weekend primary care, women’s health and osteopathic manipulation appointments, increasing availability and care options for Haxtun Health patients. Her addition will also help ensure Haxtun’s current healthcare providers are fully supported.
