I was sent to Dr. Newton by WCF insurance Co. for a independent medical evaluation, after his evaluation WCF decided that they would no longer pay for the medication prescribed by the Dr that I have seen for many years , my only option was to use another drug for the reason of cost, it doesn't work very well for me, that is the situation that I am in since seeing him. ( paid by WCF ins. who was helped )

I would and have recommended Dr. Newton to my friends and family. He is very thorough in his examinations and takes his time to explain diagnosis and recommendations. I could not be happier in choosing him as my doctor.

I would recommend Dr. Newton, by far over any of the doctors I have seen over the years for my neck pain. He listened carefully, has performed the correct diagnostic testing and I am on my way to becoming pain free. I only wish I would have found him sooner. I have walked out of Dr.s offices for making me wait over 45 minutes per visit. I was in between 10 and 15 minutes from waiting area and he was in room within 5 minutes after that. It is great to have a knowledgeable and caring Dr.

The afternoon before my appointment, I was called by Michal and told that Dr Newton was called into court and my appointment was cancelled. I was moved to the back of all appointments on their schedule! Apparently, the court system only provides one day notice for subpoenas. This practice seems to believe that their time is extremely important, and that my time is not at all important. What a terrible way to treat your client.
