Dr. Newton is very knowledgeable and experienced. He explained all my options and answered my questions. He was very kind and patient with me during a painful procedure. It has been worth a 3 hour drive to go to him.

Dr. Newton is very caring , knowledgeable and skilled. My husband and I go to him for various bodily pains and conditions. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding medicines, implants , injections etcetera and as painless as I have encountered over the years. Out of four medical providers, he was the only one who diagnosed my cervical problem.

I highly reccomend Dr. Newton for any persons back pain issues. Wait times in the waiting room can be a bit but the level of pain relief is worth the wait.

Dr. Newton is a fantastic doctor. He tells it like it is, very courteous, and doesn't leave you hanging not understanding your diagnosis, instructions, or recommendations. He's very caring and genuine . His nurse, Angela, is fantastic as well. She, too, is very caring and even after my injections, called to next day to see how I was and if I had any questions. They had a new girl in their office the day I was there and she was very compassionate and helpful too, This group is the best!!!!!!

Dr. Newton is an excellent diagnostician, and, therefore, an excellent pain specialist. He is very caring, confident and personable and explains situations in lay terms so anyone can understand. Dr. Newton is our "go to" physician for pain relief.
