Dr Newman does not listen to his patients. He jumps to conclusions and lectures you ! I had some medical issues and concerns while under his care and taking a biologic for my Ankylosing Spondylitis and had my Internal Medicine Doctor call him and HE FIRED ME AS HIS PATIENT! Who does this? Leaving me high and dry with no care for my condition all because of trying to communicate with him and get his opinion and expertise! I can not believe that Eisenhower Medical wants a man like this on the staff. My doctor told me this is "Patient Abandonment" and can not believe a professional would treat me like this. As long as you do not ask a question then you might like this man. Always too busy to read My Chart and respond or get a call back and staff has a hard time communication with this man also it seemed to me! RUN!

I saw Dr. Newman for my second visit today. My first visit was encouraging. He essentially promised he would get to the bottom of my problem. On today’s visit Dr. Newman made a point of saying several times, “I’m healthier than him.” Upon my initial visit Dr. Newman thought I had psoriatic arthritis to due chronic tendinitis and nail changes. This fits with what I believe as well. He ordered a bunch of lab tests, some of which had just been done by primary care. Today’s discussion was as if the initial visit and his preliminary impression never happened. I reminded the doctor he had thought I might have psoriatic arthritis. He asked why that was and I explained because of tendonitis and nail changes. He said we could start with methotrexate for “your nails” and if that didn’t work switch to a biological. I was taken aback he recommended this for nail changes and not psoriatic arthritis and said I did not want this for my nails. I ended up with a prescription for 5mg of predn

Please beware that if you see Dr. Kam Newman, I paid $265.00 to see him the first time...but got no diagnosis or even a suggestion to what my issue was. He ordered more lab work which I had already gotten. Now he would like another $221 to go over my results (holding my results hostage). My other doctors call if there is a problem and certainly do not charge again. The first visit? No prescription and 10 mins of his time. I would go to a more ethical doctor that cares about improving your situation, not getting $200+ for not receiving any type of care.

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.

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.
