Alan Y. Newhoff M.D.
my first impression when he started talking was that he sounded somewhat arrogant, because he immediately told us not to ask questions or make comments until he was done speaking & asked if we had questions. as he continued talking my impression changed dramatically. he is not arrogant at all. he was very informative & has quite a sense of humor as he had us laffing more than a few times. his office staff, especially, cindy, seem to be very competent & friendly. i really didnt find anything about him that i didnt like. future patients need to know that he seems quite dedicated to his patients, their surgery & their after care. the nursing staff at the hospital r afraid of him because he makes u get up 2 hours after surgery to walk & then every hour & at nite every 2 hours. he is adamant about this & the nurses follow his dictate to the letter for fear of crossing him. he insists that u be a non-smoker at least 1 month before the surgery. he also insists that u start a walking program right away. he has a support group that he requires u attend but since i am from out of town it is ok if i attend the dr fobi support group here. he is very good friends with dr fobi & they often consult with each other on technique. he was very blatant about the risks of surgery & made no bones about them nor did he try to whitewash them. he has performed over 3000 open rny's & has a 0% mortality rate & less than 1% complication rate. i would rate him an 8 on a scale of 1-10, only because i didnt have a one on one visit with him. i didnt really pick up anything negative about him. he even eats his meals the same way he expects his patients to eat their meals. i got the distinct impression that he has a wonderful bedside manner & that his surgical competence is far above many. i of course prefer surgical competence over a bedside manner but getting both is great!

my 6 week check up was scheduled for feb 8 2002. we were in florida at the time, meeting our very first grandchild who was born on 1/28. i called dr newhoff's office & explained to cindi, his office manager, why i had to cancel the appt. she took my hotel phone number, arranged a time for dr newhoff to call me & dr newhoff & i had a 6 week visit over the telephone. when i tell people this, most r shocked that dr newhoff took the time to do this. i wasnt even surprised that he did it because this is the kind of man/dr he is...caring, sensitive, compassionate & totally concerned about his patients.
