Letter to Our Patients

from Dr. Katherine P. Lewis, MD,

I grew up in lower Delaware and was influenced by the local culture, abundant and varied natural settings as well as colorful local personalities found throughout the community.  Much of this exposure was through time spent in and around my father and grandfather’s solo medical practices.  I saw firsthand how profoundly rewarding the physician-patient relationship can be when the art of medicine is fully embraced.  House calls and conversations with elderly patients inevitably led to interesting anecdotes and stories of times past.

It is my great honor and pleasure to return to the Eastern Shore and I look forward to serving the needs of our pediatric patients.  Special interests include adolescent medicine, nutrition and fitness, as well as special needs children.

Spare time is spent with my children, family and friends, exploring and enjoying the outdoors as much as possible, skiing, gardening, working out at the gym, and reading.  Although I don’t currently have one, I am passionate about all things dogs related too!  I feel strongly that teaching children from an early age to have empathy for all things living leads to a kind and caring adult who ultimately contributes to our society in a meaningful way.

Most sincerely,

Dr. Katherine P. Lewis, MD
