Patient Comments (2)

I have seen Dr. Newsom on two occasions. Both times she seemed to be in a foul mood. I don't know if her demeanor is her usual or if she doesn't like treating males or she just didn't like me but, in any event, I won't see her again.

Dr. Newsom was very polite, professional and practical. She did not want to do tests, especially invasive tests if not needed. She was not in a hurry and happy to answer my questions.
