      Dr. Newman says

      I strive to provide gastroenterology specialty care to all my patients in a private practice office environment that is respectful, comfortable and of the highest quality. Patient satisfaction surveys are taken seriously and assist us in improving the practice. We appreciate your time and effort in this process. We are open to both positive and negative feedback. 

      If he was the last gastroenterologist on earth, i wouldn't go to him. I was diagnosed with diverticulitis and told by dr. in the hospital to be on bowel rest for 8 weeks. Once i got home, i couldn't tolerate the medicine so we went to see newman. He insisted on a colonoscopy, which is the furthest thing from bowel rest. My colon perforated half hour after drinking the prep for the colonoscopy. I now wear a ostomy bag because of this so called doctor. Don't make the mistake and go to him.

      Dr Newman is awesome! He is very thorough and knowledgable plus friendly and caring. He listens and takes time with his patients. Probably one of the best doctors I've seen. I highly recommend him if you're in need for a great doctor.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      As a Gastroenterologist in private practice for over 20 years, I understand the importance of spending adequate time with you. I am an adept listener. Explaining your diagnosis and treatment plan in terms that are understandable is critically important to me. Maintenance in state-of-the-art endoscopic surgical skills allows me to treat a wide variety of gastrointestinal conditions. I am interested in both routine gastroenterology as well as challenging conditions that have caused difficulty with diagnosis and treatment.
