For many years Dr. Newcomb has been my primary physician and there is none better, hands down. I would recommend him to anyone ( because he is so good, it takes a while to get an appointment). However, if you do have an emergency you can see his very professional PA's or he will respond very quickly to any of your messages. I feel so lucky to have Dr. Newcomb as my doctor.

No, bad experience. He's always pleasant answering any questions asked of him.

I've only seen Dr Newcomb once as an urgent care situation. He was prompt, courteous, effective, tended to my needs as I hoped.

My experience was very good, every one was on the job curtesy friendly

Essentially this appointment and the ongoing care provided by Dr Newcomb and his staff have been most helpful for my ability to cope with and reasonably function in spite of chronic pain due skeletal/muscular/nerve issues.
