    How was your appointment with Dr. Newsom?

    Feb 23, 2021
    I just want to say that I'm shocked by some of these reviews. I firmly believe that some patients tend to blame the doctor for things that are out of the doctor's control. You have to do your part as a patient in order to have success and improvement in your health. Dr. Gary Newsom is one of the finest doctors I've ever had to care for me, and I have had many. He takes time to listen to his patients and genuinely cares about their health and quality of life. Before I started seeing Dr. Newsom I really didn't have much hope for my future, to be honest, but after I'd been seeing him for a while I started making plans again.
