Dr. Rachel A. Lewis, MD

Dr. Rachel Lewis is the subdivision director for the ColumbiaDoctors Faculty Practice Pediatrics offices on the Upper West Side and in Midtown. Dr. Lewis received her medical degree from Harvard Medical School and completed internship and residency at Children's Hospital of New York-Presbyterian (at that time Babies and Childrens Hospital of New York). She was named Chief Resident in Pediatrics for 2002-2003. Since graduating, she has worked as a general pediatrician on the faculty of Columbia University Medical Center, and has presided over the expansion of the general pediatrics faculty practice from a small single-physician office to the thriving 6-physician practice that forms the core of Columbia's general pediatrics presence outside of the main hospital campus. She is proud to have 5 exceptional colleagues in the practice.

Dr. Lewis's group at ColumbiaDoctors Pediatrics adheres to the most up-to-date and rigorous standards of care, and is closely woven into the subspecialty network at New York-Presbyterian. The group provides high-quality, seamlessly integrated care to children with conditions as diverse as complex congenital heart disease, genetic anomalies, cerebral palsy, asthma and countless others. The group regards its mission as providing care for the whole child: no matter what diagnosis a child may have been assigned, she is still a child, whose parents may need advice about sleep training, solid foods, school success or sibling rivalry. The goal of Dr. Lewis' practice is to ensure that families get exceptional medical care while still recognizing their children's unique characteristics and needs.
