Mr. Newkirk, does not deserve to have the title doctor! He is a QUACK! He perform lipo on me 3 months ago and my measurements are the same as they were today as the day he did the surgery! When I confronted him he became angry and asked me to leave his office! I requested a refund or a partial refund and he refused. During this visit he did not even request to measure my waist. This is because he knew he there were no change after the lipo! This man gives plastic surgeons a bad name. QUACK!

Dr. Newkirk and his staff are wonderful! He took lots of time to sit with me and give me his honest opinions on options that would best suit my needs. It did not seem at all like he was just in it for the money like so many others. He answered any and all questions and concerns I had. He is very knowledgeable and has lots of experience. I was nervous after reading some of the reviews but realize that not everyone has realistic expectations for their outcomes. I am very pleased!

I suffered a lot of bruising. The Dr. told me prior to treatment that he had only had one patient that bruised a little. After he saw what had happened to me, he tried to say I must have something terribly wrong with me. He order blood work which was an extra expense for me. My blood work came back completely normal. I have yet to hear from Dr. Newkirk with an apology or any reduction in fees. He obviously does not like to be told he performed a procedure unsatisfactorily.

So I had a cyst removed from my face on my cheek and went to doctor to have round hole closed . He left me with a worse scar and now I have to go to a new surgeon to have his horrible surgery redone.
