A wonderful doctor. He has a wide breadth of knowledge, looks at test results carefully, and considers many aspects of a possible disease or condition before making a statement. He is organized, on time, compassionate, and extremely smart and well read. He demands the best of the other doctors with whom he works and consults with other health professionals to lead to a better diagnosis. For the first time in several years, I feel that someone is looking after my health issues.

I went to Dr. Newman for excruciating muscle pain and joint pain associated with episodic fevers. He spent a good amount of time asking me relevant questions and examining me thoroughly. He was able to find out what's going on with me and treated my condition with proper medication. Dr. Newman truly cares about the physical and mental well-being of his patients. He makes himself available all the time to answer any questions or concerns. In addition, the office staff are excellent.

Got a referral from my doctor because of a gout flair up. Very painful and swollen left foot mandating the use of a cane.. Dr. NEWMAN's office telephoned me and told me the could see me three weeks later. I told them the circumstances, they couldn't care less. No Dr. Newman in my future.
