Ratings for Dr. Caroline Newman
Horrible! Horrible! Horrible! doctor. Believe all the reviews you read below. She is by far the worst doctor I've ever gone to in in 55 years. So sorry my lovely caring doctor retired and sent me to her, I think most of her patients were referred to Dr. Newman, too bad but I'm sure they've discoverd what everyone is saying. She is rude and cuts you off as your speaking constantly! always starring at her computer which she is obsessed with. I really dont think she is qualified to give you medical advise. She only allows you ONE question per visit ! you can barely get your concerns out of you mouth before she takes over the conversation. DO NOT WASTEYOUR TIME! super frustrating and uncaring doctor. Her staff does not even acknowledge you or look at you. I cant wait for my new doctors appointment!!
I went to see her, I was very sick and all she could do was repeat to me four times it costs 25 dollars for a note. She made sure to walk me at the end of our session to receptionist to make sure i was paying 25 dollars for the note. She spoke about information she would provide me the following week for my illness , all she had at our next appointment was a desk with a computer and no information. She told me I could google it. And she is being paid doctor fees for telling a patient to google the information instead of having something available to give me. Appalling MD. And people who complain are not whiney or winey as one poster stated especially the person who follow up with below comment of 'PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY ARE IN PAIN". Yes people think they are because obviously they can't feel pain. Believe me this doctor seems like she exists for the pay cheque.
I am 53 and work in a related field. I have lived in 3 Canadian capital cities as well as 2 US capital cities, and Dr. Newman is by far the worst medical doctor that I have ever experienced in my life. It's possible that she has some medical knowledge, but I wouldn't be able to judge as, every time that I've met with her, she's talking about what she is going to do for me (in general terms) to illustrate what a great doctor she is, or showing me on her computer what she is going to do for me to illustrate how efficient she is at doing it. Aside from not ever having made eye contact, she pretty much hasn't discussed with me any of the medical issues for which I came to her. I came to Dr. Newman solely because I just moved here. I'm already looking for another doctor. I strongly recommend against this doctor.
Have been desperately seeking a new female doctor since getting shuffled into Dr. Newman's care when my real doctor retired. Didn't realise how spoiled I was by having an MD who didn't stare at the computer during the whole appointment, or laugh at my chronic pain and rush me out of her office mid-sentence. Also, the annual letters asking for money for things not covered by OHIP are kind of annoying when she barely has time for you in person. Office staff are monosyllabic and mostly ignore you. Been seeing this doctor for about three years and she always has a "New Patients Welcome" sign on her door - a sure indication that she loses them as fast as she finds them.
I have been reading these comments and don't really get all of them. I've been seeing her for 3 years. I followed her from Scarborough to midtown. My mother-in-law has been seeing her for 20 years. What needs to be realized is that everyone in every field has their bad days and off moments. Physicians are human beings too. While Dr Newman can be curt or short she takes care of her patients none-the-less. Just learn some social skills and develop a rapport with professionals in order to be successful in life. She does listen. She is very knowledgeable.
There are repeated NEGATIVE comments made about this doctor? Does this not tell you something? Patients including myself continue to say..she doesn't listen, is rude, doesn't get along with her staff and is all about the $$$$...she is a terrible doctor. Not sure how she is still allowed to practice...
By far the worst doctor I have ever been to. She does not listen and has no bedside manner whatsoever. She will only listen to one problem at a time despite the fact symptoms can be related. She refers you to equally bad specialists. She can't get along with any of her office staff and is constantly bouncing from one office to another. Spare yourself the headaches and frustration. Look elsewhere for a doctor.
