I had many questions and/or concerns regarding my diagnosis. Dr. Newlin sat with my wife and I and fully explained the dx and also answered our questions and concerns. We were extremely satisfied with the care that I received.

seems he is always rushed

September 27, 2017

I was not even properly examined. I sat in an awkward position in an armed chair while there was an exam table to the left of me. The Doctor was very rude and spoke disrespectful to me about myself and my PCP.
