I would recommend Dr. Newman to anyone seeking plastic surgery. He explains all the pros and cons of treatment in a very comforting manner, seeks to engage the patient and learn something about them personally, is a great teacher and his friendly manner is so welcomed, especially to somewhat stressed patients.

Dr Newman explained everything thoroughly in a straightforward manner. He listened carefully to me, paid great attention to my medical hx. When I left the appointment I felt confident in my decision to go forward; had been very well informed of risk vs benefit of procedure; have confidence in Dr Newman and his staff/team. From start to finish of appointment I was treated respectfully with courtesy.

Dr.Newman was extremely impersonal. On my chart I mention about keloids. When the doctor walked in the first thing he said was there's nothing I can do for you as far as your keloids and he just sat there a stared at me. That time I took it upon myself to say OK what's my options because clearly he didn't seem to want to give me any. Mind you I was there for a breast reduction so I was already in my robe. He answer the questions about the keloid with no positive outcome. He Never looked at my breast we never spoke about the breast reduction the topic was just keloids and what he can't do for me and all the negative things that comes with keloids and he said oh you can probably revisit me in another year and we'll see if we can do something and walks out the room.
