Aside from what seems to be excellent professional knowledge, Dr. Newman has an endearing quality that is rare in my experience....he comes across as really caring about his patients. I've only experienced a practitioner like Dr. Newman once in my life. This was my forth time to see Joseph Newman. When I leave an office visit, every time I feel 'good' about my visit, even a time or two when I got bad news.
