Patient Care Philosophy
My goal is to express the love, care and concern for people that originates in the heart of God. I try to express respect for everyone as an equal by listening carefully and giving my full attention to every person and their issues. I strive for excellence in my medical practice, and I recognize my limitations by referring where appropriate.
I enjoy all aspects of family practice, including care of patients with complex medical problems and those with emotional and psychological issues.
Dr. Newton works to maintain current competency in the broad realm of family practice, particularly in the treatment of diabetes, heart disease and mental health issues.
