Ratings for Dr. Ahan Newman
My son saw Dr. Newman many times over years. We outlined the problems over and over. The last time we were in Sam had lost 8 of his 120 pounds in one month. Dr. Newman told Sam that "eating was a choice". He ran blood results which came back abnormal but he didn't address it, he had his assistant call to say they were normal. All the time and money we spent on repeated appointments, the undercurrent of judgment was the elephant in the room because he decided there was nothing wrong. Then Sam went to a neurologist and was finally diagnosed with Development Coordination Disorder/Sensory Integration Disorder which explains every thing right down to his sleep cycle disorder. Dr. Newman is great if you have cancer or something obvious. He's great if you have the flu or a cold. Well dressed, nice as he could be unless you bother him too much or demand a better answer. Then he will fire you like he did us. Booted us right out without notice. Took me two phone calls to receive a letter explaining why. And yes, I found the neurologist all on my own. He did NOT refer us.
This young physician is the best! He is articulate, polite and knowledgable. I was so impressed with the care we received, I asked him where he went to school. He shyly told me Harvard, Stanford, and residency at Harvard. We need more doctors like Dr. Newman. If you take your child to Pacific Medical Center, you will be a lucky parent if Dr. Newman is on duty.
