Have you seen Dr. Steven Newbold?

July 13th, 2012Not A Good Doctor
I've been a patient for years. Last year, I went in for some chest pain and a cough that I'd had for a while. First they had me see his Practicing Nurse assistant, as they often do at this location. You're lucky if you see the actual doctor. Waiting times are often an hour in the lobby, and an hour more in the actual exam room. His staff like to book several people at the same appointment time, and wonder why they run behind.His Nurse Practitioner thought I had asthma originally. Then later they thought I had pneumonia. For three months. They kept giving me antibiotics, month after month. Something wasn't right. Eventually after a CT Scan, we found out I had a large mass in my lung. Probably Lymphoma, they said.I was sent to Springfield, and after three biopsies, and endless terror, here a year later we now know that I have a very rare autoimmune disease, and my vital organs are encapsulated in scar tissue, making my blood unable to flow properly, and part of my lung is dead, among other things. I have filed for disability, and I called Newbold's office to ask if they would be able to fill out a form for me. I was told, "Doctor Newbold doesn't 'DO' Disability claims." and that was the end of the phone call.I was later informed by others in the community that he has done the same and worse to people around town, at best neglecting to keep records of what his patients tell him of their ailments.
October 5th, 2011Exceptional Doctor!
I have never had a bad experience with Dr. Newbold. He is very intelligent, honest and caring. I have no problems trusting my healthcare to him. I just hope he never retires! :) His head nurse Becky is amazing as well, she's extremely caring and I've never had a bad experience with her. Patient for 6 years.

Looking for a Dr. Am told that while Dr. Newbold is an extremely good doctor with very good manner, you had best 'stay on the good side of his staff' or they'll simply 'lose your files', 'refuse appointments' and/or 'dismiss' you as being his patient. Am certain the doc is unaware [hopefully] of his 'Problem Staff' and that this review will open his eyes. His Staff Problem is going to result in 'MALPRACTICE/NEGLIGENCE' lawsuits eventually. Otherwise, everything I hear of Dr. Newbold is Excellent.

Would Dr. Newbold ever renew bp medication without seeing his patient in 3+ years? One would hope not.
