Richland, NY |
Dr. Newman was friendly and listened to me as I explained my shoulder and hand problem. He took time to explain the options for dealing with my shoulder and related pain and numbness. I felt reassured that there is a solution for my issues.
in Weedsport, NY |
This was my first visit to him and he was the first doctor in 2 1/2 years that actually listened to when my pain stared and what happened to cause it! I have seen 3 P.A's and 4 doctors in that time and I still have the pain so I really believe that he is actually going to fix it.
