Dr. Stephen M Newman has the following 2 specialties
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Without taking any responsibility after a misdiagnosis of my mother, Dr. Newman set off an UNIMAGINABLE 30-year chain of events that caused her the following issues: Epilepsy Grand mal seizures Erratic sodium levels Fainting spells Gastrointestinal issues Pelvic floor pain A broken ankle A painful foot injury Nerve damage Chronic pain Because Dr. Newman didn't take the time to follow procedure and re-check my mom's incorrectly-diagnosed seizure disorder, she was put on medication that CAUSED seizures instead of stopped them, which ultimately lead to the rest of the ailments and surgeries. My usually active and vital mother is relegated to barely being able to walk while dealing with chronic pain in her feet as she searches for a cure to the nerve damage. Dr. Newman is a SOULLESS GHOUL who not only minimized my mom with her concerns over the course of 30 years, but who has the GAUL to refuse further treatment of her. He won't return her calls nor address her concerns, and has taken ZERO responsibility in causing a loyal patient with a laundry list of symptoms that could have been avoided if he leveled his own arrogance or learned to practice with bedside manner. Ultimately, he's protected by time and loopholes that keep him away from the threat of a malpractice lawsuit. But hopefully, just one potential client reads this and stays far, far away from this guy. He's arrogant and cowardly and should not be allowed to practice medicine.
I have known Dr. Newman over 30 years, and have often referred clients to him, knowing they would be seeing one of Ling Island's top neurologists, get the best care, and most important a patient explanation of what was going on with their health. I have taken family members there, and consulted Dr. Newman before I underwent back surgery. He was always kind, patient, informative and thorough. His office is well run. There are no long waits. He also has some very fine partners in his practice and you can be assured of the same expertise and compassion with them. On the occasions where I have requested a written report, I have received a well written document covering all the bases of the exam, prior history and answering whatever questions were posed. Dr. Newman is one of the best around and has been so ranked by a number of evaluating organizations.
I love Dr. Newman. I had trouble with previous neurologists but kept looking for one I could work with. He is my 4th neuro and I fully intend on sticking with him. He takes his time to explain things, answers all my questions, never talks down to me or rushes me out. I really like him and I highly recommend him. A+
