I have been trying to resolve a back pain problem since January. Although we haven't fixed the problem yet, we are making progress with Dr. Newell. He is the only Dr. I have seen who came up with a plan to resolve the problem.

Its so difficult to find a caring empathetic and personable doctor, I am so glad I was able to come to Dr Newell. I spent 24 hours in the hospital, and have seen another spine specialist and everyone brushed me off. Dr Newell listened (which in itself if difficult to find in a doctor these days), speculated to my possible issue, and then found it on my MRI and showed me. I really feel as if he cares about my issues, wants to resolve them as easily as possible, and wants to take care of me, and all his patients, as he would want himself or his close family cared for. If you want a top notch doctor, Dr Newell is it. Only downside is he (unintentionally of course) makes all the other ones look bad!

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
