D., Newton was very helpful. I have advanced osteoarthritis and he is providing me with an unbiased evaluation and treatment plan. He comes across as very caring, objective, and knowledgeable

Newton is fine, but the actual office procedure is awful.

I've consistently going to newton for about 6 months, at least 8 times total, and many itmes when I am schedulked to go in for an injection/procedure, they have not yet gotten the pre-authorization from insurance. So I end up go in and paying the $50 co-pay to have nothing done and have to come back usually 3/4 days later. The office staff consistently also do not book long enough appointments, even when I instruct them that I will be getting injections. Because of this, I have also had to reschedule appointments, even though all information was given up front, and in detail. Newton is a nice guy, but legitimately never remembers what he's done each visit and almost never refers to previous charts, so he relies on the patient to tell him exactly where he has inected and what he has injected.

Dr Newton is the best doctor I have met. He is not only an expert in his procedures but is also attentive, compassionate, informative and helps his patients in every way he can. I am glad I was able to travel to DC and obtain treatment from an awesome doc.

Injured by this Dr.

I visited Dr. Ben Newton at this location for my aching back. Well during his manual exam on my back he aggravated what was already injured in my back. I was in massive pain for months from his exam. I am not a large person, and I recommend he adjust his manual handling of individuals depending on the frame of the person. I had bruises that appeared on my lower back from what my internal medicine doctor said was the body's attempt to stabilize itself from the aggravation that he did. I had to get on opiod painkillers(which i'd never taken before- and don't take now) and anti inflammatories for months after this incident, thanks to the aggravation. My back started to crack in the area that he injured, during normal movement, and I could not put pressure on the injured side (i.e. standing, sleeping on that side). I would disappear at work for a few hours everyday to lie down as I could not stand the pain. I went to physical therapy for two years after this incident to try to remedy the lingering pain and spasms that remained after this incident.
