I came across a critical review of Dr. Walter Newman on a Scam Reporting website – DirtyScam.com, titled ‘VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!’.
DirtyScam allows anonymous submission of complaints from angry consumers and victims of scams. Since the website is hosted offshore (probably in Russia or India), we take this (negative) review against Dr. Walter Newman with a pinch of salt.
Here is what the review says –
VERY UNPROFESSIONAL! On my first two visits, I never got to meet Dr. Walter Newman but his assistant Ian.Each session I had to talk to Ian, waiting for him to discuss with Dr. Newman in private before getting back to me with the diagnosis.After my 2nd appointment, I got a call saying that Dr. Newman needed to see me directly as Ian didnt communicate to me the correct info.I talked to the nurse that i would only go if no copay required as I decided to seek for another family doctor for face-to-face diagnosis.They adviced me to come anyways due to the possibile misinformation from my last visit and no copay was charged. 6 months later (few days ago), I received a bill for late payment.When I called to seek for more info, the nurse was not helpful at all (telling me her job was just to get the bill resolved and if I used doctors time I had to pay) and that Ian had no time to talk to me on this neither.I will send the cheque to them but am disappointed and shocked on how I am treated as a patient and the unprofessionalism of this clicnic and doctor can be.Sharing my experience to other potential patients and hopefully Dr. Newman/Ian themselves can be aware of this situation.This in fact was the worst experience I ever had with any doctor!
