My experience with Dr. Newsome has been poor. I was referred by a specialist in my city who suspected I had MS. When I visited Baltimore, Dr. Newsome falsely assumed I self-diagnosed and quickly said I didn't have it. He was condescending and did not seem to believe my symptoms. Test results came back with many abnormalities. Despite attempts to get his feedback and a possible diagnosis, he often takes weeks to respond, and he seemed to get me confused with another patient. Terrible experience!
