Stephen Newman, MD
I treat my patients with respect to their own circumstances, hopes, lifestyles and expectations. I
believe it's important to consider a patient's individuality. Making patients feel comfortable is one of my biggest priorities. My patients tell me I'm a good listener. I think my sense of humor and ability to translate complicated medical problems into understandable language helps put them at ease.
I see all ages from newborns to elderly. I help those with chronic medical conditions, acute illness and
injuries. I talk about the importance of preventive medicine. I believe patients should participate in making decisions about their health care. I encourage them to gather as much information as they can about their medical problems and treatment options. My job is to help them sort through the
information and make a decision that best suits their situation. After all, the
patient is the most important member of the health care team.
