Dr. Dana L Newswanger 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 Hockessin family practice for about 20 years. I moved 10 years ago and still drive out to Hockessin for Dr Newswanger. She is compassionate, listens to me, and never rushes through the appointment. The facility is very nice, the whole staff is friendly, and the wait times are short. It is always easy to get an appointment, usually the same day I call, if necessary. I've called the on-call doctors at night, and they've gotten back to me promptly and called in prescriptions, if needed. Most importantly, I really appreciate seeing a doctor who seems to genuinely care so much about her patients.
Dr Newswanger was the first Dr to diagnose a rare condition I had. She is very kind, listening to everything you have you say. She discusses every level of your care and explains everything so you are completely confident in your diagnoses. The office staff is great and wait times are short. She is always available and is prompt to respond to any questions you may have. I consider myself lucky that I found such a great Dr because I could still be undiagnosed. By far the best Dr I have ever seen.
I have been going to Dr. Newswanger for 6+ years now and must say she is efficient, straight to the point, open to any questions, actually comes across as caring about you, reviews your file before seeing you and understands your past issues, and overall a great person. Being a male I feel completely at ease describing any situation I have with her. I recommend her to anyone looking for a new doctor.
