Suzanne A. Beck, MD
After many dedicated years of providing compassionate care, Dr. Suzanne A. Beck will be retiring and transitioning away from practicing medicine full-time, effective September 18, 2022. We are incredibly honored to have had the opportunity to work alongside Dr. Beck and hope she finds the joy and relaxation she deserves in this new chapter of her life!
"It has truly been a privilege to be a part of the Lubbock medical community over the past 30 years and in many ways, it is difficult for me to step away from full-time medical practice. I will remain available as a medical consultant to the practice and will see patients on a limited part-time basis. I encourage my patients to continue care in our clinic where our well-trained providers offer state-of-the-art allergy and immunology services in a patient-centered environment.
AllerVie health is generously supporting my decision to implement these changes. This will allow me time to focus more precious time on my family and move in the direction of medical mission work together with my husband. I am leaving with a deep sense of gratitude. The honor of playing a small role in the pathway to the health and healing of others is a gift I will always treasure. Each of you has a special place in my heart. Thank you for your trust in me and for the countless ways you have enriched my life."

Dr. Lewis joins the team after recently completing a fellowship in allergy and immunology at the University of Iowa. She completed her internal medicine residency at the University of Louisville School of Medicine and is Board Certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
A native of Jacksboro, Tennessee, Dr. Lewis is a perfect fit with the clinic’s mission statement: “To be an instrument of healing physically, spiritually and emotionally in the lives of all patients. In all encounters, Christ be glorified.”
Dr. Lewis is recently married to Dr. Gilbert Brown, who will be practicing anesthesiology in the Lubbock medical community.
Please join us in extending a heartfelt “howdy” to Dr. Lewis and Dr. Brown!
