I had put off sinus surgery for years. After moving to Ft. Myers, I had the opportunity and time to get this done. I am 1 week post surgery-I couldn’t be happier with the entire experience. Dr. Newlon gave me a better quality of life by increasing my breathing and oxygen intake with this surgery. He is professional, extremely kind and I would definitely recommend - and have already - him and his office.

I brought my 90 yr old Dad by Dr Newlon’s Office today to clear his ear (a 5 min procedure). Told the person he was an existing patient and that he was havin quadruple bypass surgery tomorrow morning and was willing to wait. We were told that without an appt he could not be seen. I again explained my Dad was facing life threatening surgery. We were told the Dr was very busy - never have I encountered a less helpful or compassionate practice toward a 90 yr old patient that needed a little help.

1st visit $850, 2nd visit $250. $25 fee for FMLA forms on 5/3/17 & told it would take 2-3 days. On 5/5 I was told it wold be faxed that day or 5/8, on 5/12 I was told it would be faxed by 5/15. On 5/17 I was told it was being faxed then. On 5/17 I had surgey w/o the forms. Dr Newlon never showed up to see me for pre- or post-opp or even discharge on 5/18. Newlon runs a money-hungry, fee-based office only. The Anesthesiologist stayed with me from pre-opp onward. Dr Newlon has 0 bedside manner!

I recently visited Dr. Newlon because my hearing had declined in my left ear. He and his staff were quick to determine I had liquid behind my ear drum restricting its movement and resulting in my hearing loss. He took the time to explain my options and I elected to have him "fix" the problem. He performed his procedure with care and kept me informed of what he was doing. My hearing has been restored. I would recommend you see him and get great care.

I have been going to him for two years. I started with a throat concert which he surgically addressed and returned for a deviated septum after researching five or six other doctors. I am so glad I chose this practice. My results are impeccable and I work in medical skin care so I am a very picky client.

Has the best bed side manner, listen to ALL your issues. Let's you know what he thinks the next steps should be. Answers all questions with professional attitude. Has a calm voice and shows you at each step what he is about to do. I am a health care professional myself. I know many of the ENT's in my area, and Dr. Newlon is a very caring doctor.. Would refer patients to him lots....
