Edmund H. Lew, MD

Edmund H. Lew, MD has been voted by the readership of the CV Weekly as the "Best Family Doctor in Glendale" from 2012 to 2014 and the Glendale News-Press in 2015, "Top Doc" by Pasadena Magazine in 2012-2015, and "Physician Hero of the Year" for 2016.

These commendations are fitting, as Dr. Lew describes the most fulfilling part of his job as helping patients find workable solutions to their health issues in the context of their busy lives.

Born in Los Angeles and raised in the Silver Lake district by his parents who are of Chinese ancestry, Dr. Lew attended Loyola High School and attained a BA in Psychology from the University of San Francisco. After earning his MD degree from the Chicago Medical School, he returned home to complete a 3-year residency in Family Medicine at Glendale Adventist Medical Center in 1986.

Through his medical volunteerism, teaching, and practice accomplishments, he was honored as a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Medicine. He is also board certified in Geriatric Medicine. He has held associate teaching appointments at USC Medical School and Glendale Adventist Family Practice Residency Program.

As chairman of the board of ComCare Primary Medical Group, Dr. Lew helped develop an innovative partnership of physicians working together to provide cost-effective, high-quality medical services to patients in the greater Glendale area. He has served on various medical quality assurance committees at Glendale Adventist Medical Center, local nursing homes, home health, and hospice agencies.

Currently, Dr. Lew serves as medical support for missionaries serving in the Arcadia Mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He is fluent in Spanish.

Dr. Lew's approach to medicine is one of genuine interest and care not commonly found among busy physicians of today. In fact, one of Dr. Lew's initial inspirations as a premedical student came from a dream where he saw himself like the small-town, country doctors of old - treating people as he went farm to farm and paid in kind with poultry, eggs, and livestock.

Of this vision and its modern fulfillment as a primary care physician, Dr. Lew said, "I love the simple joy of healing people in need." Dr. Lew is a devoted family man who lives with his wife in La Canada. They recently became "empty nesters."

Their oldest son is married and training to follow in his father's footsteps and become a family physician. Of the two younger children, one is a high school biology teacher and the other is pursuing a career in dentistry.

For many years, she enjoyed serving broad-based needs of patients affiliated with the Veterans Administration (VA) facilities in Brooklyn and Palo Alto. As a staff member at the VA in Palo Alto, she also held an appointment as a Clinician Educator in the Division of General Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine.

Her most recent experiences in London gave her a unique perspective into various coagulation and bleeding disorders, and an opportunity to publish a paper on osteoporosis in patients with hemophilia.

Sunitha enjoys developing long-term relationships with patients in a primary care environment and believes that this facilitates continuity of care and contributes to greater patient and doctor satisfaction.

Dr. Gill recently relocated with her family to Southern California and is excited to be part of Lew Medical. She and her husband have three children and are enjoying the sunshine, mountains, and beaches.

Dr. Gill enjoys hiking, reading, traveling, and firmly believes that the best way to find happiness is to serve others.

What We Do

Family Practice Physicians (MD) are uniquely trained to diagnose and treat a wide variety of acute and chronic illnesses. They're equipped to provide continuing, comprehensive, and preventative care to all patients, regardless of sex or age. The residency program in Family Practice includes training in pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, surgery, psychiatry, and most areas of internal medicine such as gastroenterology, dermatology, cardiology, neurology, and pulmonary medicine. Family Practice physicians have been trained to care for the medical needs of patients in the office setting, as well as in the hospital, and have the knowledge and experience necessary to handle 85-90% of all human illness. Our physicians are board certified by the American Board of Family Practice.

Internal Medicine Physicians are personal physicians who provide long-term, comprehensive care in the office and the hospital, managing both common and complex illnesses in adolescents, adults, and the elderly. Internists are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, infections, and diseases affecting the heart, blood, kidneys, joints, and digestive, respiratory, and vascular systems. They're also trained in the essentials of primary care internal medicine which incorporates an understanding of disease prevention, wellness, substance abuse, mental health, and effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system, and reproductive organs. An internal medicine physician's primary responsibilities include heath maintenance and disease screening, the diagnosis and care of acute and chronic medical conditions, management of patients with multiple, complex medical problems, and serving as consultants to other disciplines such as surgery, obstetrics, and family medicine. An internist's work is characterized by extensive knowledge and skill in diagnosis and treatment.

Physician Assistants (PA) are health-care professionals licensed to practice medicine with the supervision of a licensed physician. A physician assistant is concerned with preventing, maintaining, and treating human illness and injury by providing a broad range of health-care services that are traditionally performed by a physician. Physician assistants conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, counsel on preventive health care, assist in surgery, and write prescriptions. Physician assistants exercise autonomy in medical decision-making as determined by their supervising physician. They're educated in the medical model designed to complement physician training, rather than in the nursing model as nurse practitioners are. Our PAs are certified by the American Academy of Physician Assistants.

Nurse Practitioners (NP) are advanced practice nurses who have completed graduate-level education and training in the diagnosis and management of common as well as complex medical conditions. To become licensed to practice, nurse practitioners hold national certification in an area of specialty and are licensed through nursing boards rather than medical boards. Nurse practitioners provide a broad range of health-care services. They treat both physical and mental conditions through comprehensive history taking, physical exams, physical therapy, and ordering tests, and therapies for patients within their scope of practice. NPs can serve as a patient’s primary health-care provider, and see patients of all ages depending on their designated scope of practice.
