He's a very in demand doctor (sole practitioner). I had to wait 2 months before I got an appt. but it was so worth the wait. He was prepared for my visit and knew my diagnosis in advance just by having read my history on my My Chart records. For 15 years my symptoms and pain were misdiagnosed with having OA when it was never that. Extensive blood tests confirmed his diagnosis and with medication I am 95% pain free and able to function like I haven't been able to in many years.

No words can describe how great this physician is. I met Dr. Newman for the first time when I ended up in the hospital for my severe lupus flare. While I was hospitalized, he came and visited me every day to make sure I am okay (even on the weekends). I have been following up with him after my hospital discharge. He provides clear instructions and goes over my lab results with me. Very knowledgeable, reliable and respectful Highly recommended.

I would put zero stars if I could. This guy is a waste of time and money! He thinks he knows everything, came across very rude at times, offered me zero help for my fibromyalgia and autoimmune disease except saying to take a Tylenol....don’t waste your time with this guy! There are much better ones around! And he’s very pricey and tries to get you to do things you don’t need! And also is a HORRIBLE listener! Just talks right over you.

I took my father in to see Dr Newman after over 10 other drs failed to help his gout issue. My dad could not walk without assistance. Dr Newman spent over hour and half only talking to my dad and another hour of examination. He wrote a treatment plan consisting of dietary foods and only one medication on the first visit. Needless to say, dad began to walk on his own the third day ofter. Dr. Newman is amazing. We cant thank him enough.

My wife has had two visits with Dr. Newman. He is charming, always smiling, and exudes confidence. I highly recommend him. All the physicians at Eisenhower that we have dealt with have been great! He also appears to be a great clinician, which is the reason we see doctors after all!

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.
