I have recommended him to someone. I am just use to the dr. he replaced who spent more time with patients and wrote down information so that we could still review it when we got home in case we still had questions.
in Petersham, MA |
He doesn't listen to patient or other Doctors. His extreme arrogance cost me several months of life (in my opinion). The hospital can communicate with my primary doctor two towns away but Newsome claims he never received updates from the ER when he is 1 floor above. I would stay away from this facility and especially this doctor, He told me life has no guarantees and there is a better chance of getting hit by a satellite then my cancer coming back, 6 months later he was wrong.
