in Tampa, FL
My experience with Dr Newman was terrible. He wouldn't listen to me and my VA doctors listened more then he did. He gave me medication that I should of not taken due to it no9t being verified by FDA. He also had me come back every 3 months so he could get paid by workmans comp. Would not recommend.

Dr. Newman mis-diagnosed me after viewing my MRI and performing neurological tests on my spine. He was in and out of the office rapidly, not listening to me describe and demonstrate my symptoms. The correct diagnosis was found by my Interventional Radiologist, and surgery was subsequently performed...more

Doesn't listen. Treated me like I was stupid and neurotic. Only seemed to be concerned with what medications he could prescribe or not prescribe for me.
