“Dr. Newsome is one of the most caring doctors my wife and I have ever met. I don’t know what we would ever have done without his guidance on my wife Janice’s constant battle with severe pain over the last 20 years. She has 3 herniated discs in her neck that she deals with day in, and day out. She is not a candidate for surgery so her only alternative is to visit the pain clinic monthly to get some sort of relief. Without it, she would not be able to function normally. She often says that Dr. Newsome is her guardian angel.”
Janice and Manuel Sousa, 2014
