See what one doctor had to say about us

"Speaking as a physician myself, I can say that Dr Newman is exactly what I 
look for in a health care provider: knowledgeable, experienced, personable 
and attentive to detail. He is one of the few professionals left who 
manages their own practice and is able to maintain that unique combination 
of professionalism, efficiency and personal care that used to characterize 
the traditional doctor's office--before we all became corporatized. I have 
been under Dr Newman's care for 15 years and drive back to Durham to see 
him even though I no longer live in town. Highly recommended."

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I've been coming here since I was a young adult, I'm now 36 and I have also bought my kids here as well. Dr. Newman and his staff are all wonderful. I bought my nephew in today and realized this is his 1st eye appointment. He also has some anxieties when it comes to appointments and new experiences. Dr.Newman was very patient and answered all his questions. I recommend this place for anybody looking for reliable, friendly, and patient eye care."
