Dr. Newell has been my spine doctor for several years. He is attentive, takes his time explaining non-operative choices. He has helped me with injections and pain management of my lower back. I am very satisfied and would recommend him. Because of his pain management planning on my behalf I have been physically as active as ever.

Seen Dr. Newell for a lower back problem had xray an MRI Not very impressed with his knowledge. I was told if I wanted a shot to relieve pain to call. I called and sat in lobby an hour past my appointment when I finally saw a nurse not the Doctor was told I could not get shot that day and would have to schedule a 4th appointment to get relief of my pain. I will find another doctor
