Personal Bio

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.

Patient Reviews (2)
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.
