When told I had basal cell on my nose, I was given two options: 1) to have a dermatologist remove it, or 2) have a plastic surgeon remove it. I decided to use a plastic surgeon. I initially selected a plastic surgeon other than Dr. Newman that was going to leave a very large scar on my face. When I heard of a similar procedure Dr. Newman had performed on another patient from a neighbor, I went to Dr. Newman to get a second opinion. To my delight, he was able to remove the cancer and leave only a small scar. In fact, in just 10 days I was able to conduct research at a dental conference without wearing makeup to cover the incision! Dr. Newman is an exceptional surgeon and is extremely personable. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a caring, conservative physician!
