Newman delivered my babies.and forced me to go way longer than need be with twins. 38 1/2 weeks. My issue isn't so much that... the staff is horrible. With a scheduled appointment it still takes an hour past appointment time to be seen. My biggest concern is Newman's bedside manner and her inability to respect your own choices for your body. I have severe endometriosis and she insists I take Lupron but it's not something I'm willing to take. After saying no to her and explained that wasn't an option she became angry, impatient and very rude towards me. She said I could find a new doctor and again tried to push the a Lurpon till I finally left. I will NEVER go back and would definitely not recommend her.
I waited 3 wks for an appt and just as I arrived, they canceled me, due to the dr running out to the ER for an OB patient. The best they could offer was 4 days later with a nurse practitioner. Sorry, Charlie, I just left work early, which means I had to work late yesterday, and I have a medical issue that needs to be addressed NOW. No backup coverage? You're working in the Dark Ages. I called another dr, who will see me TOMORROW. How's that for service, honeybuns?
Do not have Dr. Barbara Newman as you ob. The easiest way to sum up my experience with her is my husband almost called 911 from the delivery room. She handled the birth of my daughter terribly, and hurt me badly. Luckily my baby was fine. If you are seeking her services go to someone else.
unfortunately i had to find a new ob due to my gyno not delivering babies anymore and i wish i had read the reviews on Dr. Newman before i chose her. several times she had come into the room and started discussing another patients chart with me and i would be frightened because the other patients case would be more severe than mine! She also had taken me off pelvic rest at one point and then 2 months later tells me i can go off bed rest when she had already had taken me off the 2 months prior! she def doesn't have it together and is sloppy in the office! I really hope her strong point is in the delivery room because i'm to far along in my pregnancy to change Dr's.
I absolutely will NEVER go to another OBHYN!!! Dr. Newman is the best. She goes above and beyond for her patients, makes them feel at home, and she took extremely good care of me. She delievered my sister's 2 babies and I hope she will deliever mine in the future! Thanks Dr. Newman for Everything!
