“I’ve been a patient of Dr Tamra Lewis for over 4 years. I have a neurogenic bladder as a result of Multiple Sclerosis. Dr Lewis really understands this condition and my intolerance of the medications. I receive Botox injections periodically which has given me my life back. I highly recommend a consultation with Dr Lewis for any bladder issues you have, especially, neurogenic bladder symptoms.” – Joy W.
