Dr. Newton helped me-he gave me back my life. After 4 different back surgeries I found myself in his office ready to give in to living my life with pain pills. He said I didn't need pain medication yet because he had options I had not tried. I thought he was going to talk me in to getting injections but instead let ME choose. I decided to try Spinal Cord Stimulator and for a week my leg pain was 80% gone! Now I'm waiting for the permanent and will be able to ride and see my grandkids in MS.
When looking for a doctor, I hoped to find someone who truly cared about their patients, would pursue all options to make them better, and would always treat me with the respect they would give their own family members. I found that and so much more with Dr. Newton and his team. The short wait time, the thorough evaluation, and the time that Dr. Newton spent with me reassured me that I was in the right place. I cannot say enough positive things about this office and the people who work here!!
Words cannot express how thankful I am for Dr. Newton and his staff. From their promptness, to the professional and caring demeanor of everyone I came across, to the individualized care that I received -- If you are looking for a doctor who genuinely cares, a staff that will go out of their way for you, and to feel like you truly matter, look no further. Thank you Dr. Newton and your team for continually providing the utmost care to your patients. You are truly the best of the best.

Nobody in that office cares about you that's for sure. Will not call you back have called for 3 days now in real bad pain.....but NO CALL BACK......Dr and the staff really SUCKS!! I ended up at the ER for them to put an IV on me just to help me with the pain. Never go to Dr Newton because he will not listen to you or really care about you. If you need pain med's go to him that's it the name of the game. Why do people with back pain end up in a rehab because pain med's are all they throw at you.
I have gone here for over 10 years. The staff has gotten so much worst over the years. Dee Dee will just completely laugh in your face and argue with you and the office manager won't do anything about it. They make simple mistakes all the time and don't pay attention. The redhead at the front is extremely rude. She has no idea what she's talking about but will argue everything. They dismissed me and I still don't know why. If you are abused by staff be prepared to take it or not have a doctor.
If I could give 0 stars I would. The doctor was okay I guess. But barely spent any time with me. Whenever I had questions I always felt rushed. The nurses seemed nice enough. There were always a couple that were really helpful. But the staff. They are HORRIBLE. A couple of the ladies are nice people but watch out for the redhead and Dee Dee. They have the worst attitudes. The redhead tries to argue with everything you say even if you're just asking a question. Dee Dee will blatantly roll eyes.

Staff is abusive. Drs want me to get shots that don't help. I terminated with them and then they turned it around and said they were terminating me. They should be investigated because then they filed my labs results with medicare, which I don't even have. If you are 5 minutes late they cancel your appointment but it is ok if they make you wait. If I could give 0 stars I would. In all the years I was going there they never even did x-rays. Had to go to an arthritis dr for it. Run from them!!!
