If this Pewitt is Charles Pewitt's sister your going to love this place. His sister helped him for a time at his office and she was very nice and helpful in not only curing your ill's but curing your need for knowing.

Yes this is Dr. Pewitt's sister. She like her brother has always shown compassion and excellent care as I have always come to expect from them. This coming from a patient of his since the early 90's.
