Dr. Aaron Newcomb has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I have been going to him since Feb. of this year and he has done more than my previous doctor of 32 years. Some times they all have to look things up. Could you remember every med, etc. for all the medicines he could give you??? I am the one who keeps asking the same thing over and over sometimes. He is polite and most doctors wont perscribe narcotis unless they really have to.

Seems very nice,friendly & caring but apparently isn't knowledgeable enough about prescription narcotics. Doesn't seem to realize when 1 drug is a generic version of another. When he states I can't prescribe you this because it's a narcotic but prescribes you the exact thing, name brand at a higher dose, it's either he doesn't know what he's talking about or he's getting a kickback from the pharmeceutical co because the name brand is $400 for 28 pills. That is a definite problem & I do not recommend him because of this. One should have confidence in their Dr reguarding all prescriptions. Something here just doesn't add up
