Dr. Michael M Newan has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

I have had test after test, called to make an appointment could not see for over 3 weeks, called to see if I could get an earlier appt., was told by office they did not know if he would be in today, then was told after waiting 3 weeks my apt was not to see the dr but for more tests. I DO NOT NEED MORE TESTS I NEED TO SEE THE DR am having breathing issues,again was then told they did not know if dr would be in today. I asked t have dr call me was told to call another dr, see someone else!! Wow, have had breathing studies and tests done but cannot see the dr for treatment or results. Never again will I see this dr, not that I would even when making appts. Feel horrible need to see the doctor and am told go see someone else. Wow never had a doctors office tell me that when I said I was ill and needed to see a doctor. Worse experience with a doctor ever!!!
I waited 3 mos for an appt. One wk prior office called to resked because he was going to be out of town. Booked 1 wk later. I left a luncheon early to get there on time for my 2PM appt. I am told he called in sick and they had left a message for me at home....15 mins after I left at 11AM. They couldn't call at 9AM? Or he hadn't notified the office yet? I'm rebooked for following Fri at 1PM even though he doesn't usually see patients of Fri. I arrive to find another woman booked at same time. By 1:30 he had not returned from lunch. I left! Do not book with this man if you value your time. he has no regard for his patients. Office lunch hours are 11AM to 1PM.
