Dr. Newman is amazing. She is so sweet and patient. She is willing to hear you out and validates your concerns. She tries to think of other possible causes to the problem and helps brainstorm the best way to proceed. I appreciate her compassion and patience. When I sent her an email over the portal on a Sunday, she responded within a few hours, when I was expecting 2 business days. She always puts things in simple terms and tells me the purpose of any test that is being administered. She is amazing and I appreciate her greatly!
