dr Newman is excellent and his care of me and I am Magine of every patient that he sees. I put my trust in my face and this doctor and he save my eye and he does follow up visits to ensure that I retain my vision. What I was very upset with was the intake nurse who did my initial supposedly I exam who forgot to dilate my eyes who forgot to take my eye pressure and had to retrace your steps. I don\'t care for her attitude in the exam that she gave me was cursory and provided very little detail . This nurse or assistant is not to be that confused with Dr Newman\'s assistant or nurse that works with him in the his office.
