Excellent all around. As a surgeon Dr Martin Newman is in an outstanding league of his own. A gifted surgeon with an intuitive understanding of his patients due to his exceptional listening skills. He is thorough, addresses concerns and realistic expectations of what to expect in preparation for aesthetic procedures. He is also direct honest and wonderfully positive but readily points out potential hazards of any procedure. He has the artistic gift of a classic timeless Renaissance sculpture.Nurses Rachel and Marcella are kind considerate very attentive to Dr N and equally to his patients needs and concerns. Office coordinator administrator Carole Rockman goes above and beyond requests. She is a meticulously organized professional and In tune with both the office and patients. She possesses magical powers keeping everything smooth flowing and readily addresses billing issues which remove the stress and anxiety from past errors I have encountered on my chart. Everyone in the department is blessed with excellent people skills and they are a strong solid team One of my favorite Dr Newman quotes is "Teamwork makes dream work"
