Specialties

Dr. Michael W Newkirk has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Occupational Medicine

    You might work with an occupational therapist when you’re injured or if you have a disability. They rehabilitate and assist patients with every day activities, such as eating, getting dressed, working and attending social events. This includes self-care, leisure and work-related activities that lead to increased independence and development. Their goal is to empower people to still live the life they want despite any physical, developmental, social and/or emotional issues they might face.

Michael Newkirk, along with Baptist Worx is a joke!

I check myself in being that I was coming down with a cold. Dr. Newkirk spent a little over 3 minutes examining me with the routine equipment. He quickly came to the conclusion I was suffering from allergies. He prescribed me flonaise and sent me on my way. 3 days later after no improvement I decide to get a 2nd opinion at Norton's immediate care and they quickly informed me that I had strep throat. I do not recommend this so called doctor to anyone, along with baptist worx. I hope this saves someone time and money.

You've been Warned

I broke my upper arm at work yesterday and today he released me back to work despite the fact that I can't use my right arm or even move it. I can't even go to the bathroom without help pulling my pants up. When I asked him about this he got all worked up becaused I dared to question his judgement. If you must go to Baptistworx on Fern Valley take my advice and see the other doctor even if you have to come back at a later time.
