His bedside manner is the worst I've seen in a doctor. He is more interested in playing golf then doing a good job during surgery.

Love Dr Newman

He performed thyroid surgery on my wife and took out my gall bladder. He's a brilliant, well established, and respected surgeon. A previous writer wrote about his bedside manner. While I may agree that he isn't the warmest of Dr's; that is the least of my criteria. I want a skilled and respected surgeon with a ton of creditentials who knows how to use the lastest technological advances. Dr Newman is the man. He saved my wife's life and made me feel better the moment he took out my gallbladder.

Office Visit

First time office visit was horrible. The staff was rude, and when Dr. Newman walked into the clinic room he didn't even bother to introduce himself. Why would you let someone perform surg. on you when he doesn't even introduce himself? His bedside manner was the worst I've seen in years. NOT GOING BACK
