06/29/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: CBL is okay IF you are willing to go visit your loved one multiple times a week and develop a rapor with staff. However, becuase the staff turns over often you must constantly say the same things over and over again and you must keep pushing.


12/12/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: This facility is insensative to patients. I would not refer anyone to admit their family member to this facility. The nurse's are unexperience and they do not care for the patients daily as they should along with lack of physicial therapy in helping the patient towards recovery. Please research other facilities before you consider sending your family member to Carol Brown Lewis's Health Center. It's not what is should be and of course this review is from experience of a family member whom we had to transfer from this facility. CBL only wants the money but does not follow up with it's program.
