Can seem a little rushed, but has so much experience when you do have a problem, he ensures you don't leave with any questions. My mom is a doctor and was so impressed at his skills in the delivery room. Couldn't recommend him more.

Dr. Newman is a rockstar. Delivered my daughter and couldn't have asked for a better birth experience. He doesn't waste time with a lot of pleasantries but if any problems arise he is 100% there the entire time.

Ms.

This Doctor saved my life. He was the first one who mentioned that my pregnancy was ectopic and took immidiate steps and followed up with me every day by calling me that is very rare in this country. He might seem rude or very fast I mean if you like a chit chat and somebody to pamper you he is the very wrong one for you but if you want somebody highly professional go for it.

terrible cuts post baby

He is great when you want quick no strain visits durning your pregnancy. He looked after my second pregnancy. On delivery day he was in a hurry and had no problem letting me know that. I had to fight him off. He performed an episiotomy, stitched me up in a way that has left me in pain and aware of myself in a manner I never thought possible. I would NOT recommend him at all for actual child birth but for the pregnancy he is fine.

Dr. Newman's Review

He might be prompt with few words, but he is accurate, caring, experienced, and an expert surgeon. He performed a C-section on me and the incision was impeccable. the operation was a breeze thanks to Dr. Newman, and he followed up every day and even with postpartum.

Two Stars

He's clearly a talented and respected physician, but forget about bedside manner. And if you have a son and you want him circumcised and Dr. Newman is attending, be sure to specifically say that you would like him to use anesthetic.
