    The only recommendation he considered was medication through regular pharmacy even though I had told him I'm taking cbd oils and they seem to be doing just as much as previous medications taken years ago. It seemed his only concern was his security not my wellness

    Very knowledgeable, and explains the answers clearly. He made sure I understood the answer before we moved on. Early to the appointment.

    CLINICAL NEUROSCIENCES CENTER

    Dr Newman is a nice man, but he spends a good portion of his time talking to the understudies, more than the patients that are paying a lot of money for his time.

    Dr Newman is extremely thoughtful and caring. I'm retiring and wish I could take the entire office with me to my new state. Thanks for everything!

    Dr Newman listened to what I said and then acted on my problems.

    CLINICAL NEUROSCIENCES CENTER

    My initial reaction to Dr. Newman was filled with annoyance and frustration. He was rude, interrupted me and seemed arrogant. After advocating for myself, he finally listened and created a plan for evaluation. By the end of the appointment I felt more reassured that I can get some answers to my health issues. I believe Dr. Newman is knowledgeable but has a terrible bedside manner.
