Very rude. Spent entire time angry at his staff and talking about himself. Did not explain anything or give any feedback. Only saw him because my other first choice Dr sent me. No trust in him whatsoever.

Very rude, was sent by my other First Choice Dr and will never go to him again. He performed a very painful exam and was rough. He did not even provide bandaid's for where I was left bleeding. He was more concerned about discussing that he doesn't hang out with other Dr's or nurses, that he likes cops. When I asked about accepting new pts, he stated very rudely that he doesn't perform pain management, which wasn't the question. Very rude, very inconsiderate

I appreciate doctor's way of directing healing not for the physical body alone. He takes in consideration the entire being. Newman is one whom you may feel free to open your soul; while NEVER being judged. One could come in feeling like a "rag mop", but after Megan or himself; as well as that delightful coffee, ALL IS WELL. I have been his patient since the early nineties. Go where? No place else says I.

Carefully explained my rare medical condition and why I was experiencing the pain I was having. He was very friendly and kind, even offered to listen to any questions I might have in the future despite the options for medical intervention being very limited as not a lot of research has performed on my condition. I would recommend him to all in need of a neurologist.
