Dr Newkirk cares about me. She answers my questions no matter how inane and listens to my suggestions regarding my health issues. But she also seems truly interested in my family and my activities and hobbies. Speaking with her is like speaking with a friend.

This was a new patient appointment for me. Although I think Dr. Newkirk intentions were well meaning, I got the impression that she was trying to "sell" healthcare services (i.e., gastric bypass surgery) instead of supporting my desire to loose weight naturally with a plant-base diet. Personally, this provider will not be a good fit for me. To add, the front desk was a complete turn off. Not the most professional behavior displayed for people who work in a medical practice.

Today’s appointment was unique. Normally Dr Newkirk is very prompt. While she was later than usual today she explained she was exceptionally busy and apologized. I suspect she spent extra time with another patient, a concern for her patient which I suspect she would show me should the need arise. Het tardiness was understood, accepted and klein sorge.

My first appointment with Newkirk was great. She was super nice, willing to listen, and seemed active in my treatment plan for a Chronic illness. That wasn’t the case when I went in a second time. It was clear that she hadn’t looked into my health condition to learn more about it. And unfortunately it’s something that effects every system in my body, so it impacts everything. Instead of letting me explain the things I had been dealing with (secondary symptoms), she wrote a prescription for something I didn’t want and told me she didn’t think she was the doctor for me. If you have a chronic illness, I would meet with her first before making her your choice as a primary care doctor. Like I said, she was really nice the first time I met with her. And Who knows, maybe she wasn’t having a good day.
