What People Say About Dr. Newton Muthunayagam, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
He performed an ERCP on my mother and perforated her esophagus after admitting he met with resistance, but kept on pushing. She was in an induced coma for a week. He showed little or no concern saying that all cuts heal. She never completely recovered because at age 87, she was forced to lie in bed for two months on a feeding tube and her muscles atrophied. He robbed her of her life and me of my mother.

Dr. Newton completely misdiagnosed my intestinal cancer due to his inability to listen to the patient. He kept insisting that I had acid reflux even after losing almost 20 pounds in a month. His arrogance is a danger to patients.

He is HORRIBLE. They never return a call, not even when it is test results. I would NEVER refer anyone to him. He is terrible!
