It was a very good experience with Dr Newman. Dr. Newman took his time in listening and responding. I felt like I was in good hands.

Reviewed on May 24, 2019

I feel that Dr. Newman was exceptional in his level of care. I felt that he was thorough in his explanations of the procedure both pre and post op. If I had questions (which I did) that I forgot to ask or concerns that arose after our office visit, I could call and he would personally speak to me and address each of those. I feel that I was well informed and Dr. Newman really listened and addressed my personal wishes. He always offered his professional opinion and options, end results, etc., but ultimately the decision was mine to make. This was especially important to me. Based on prior experience; the results, especially in the field of plastic surgery, can be based on the physician's perception of how you should look. This was definitely not the case in this situation.
