Dr. McNew tries so hard to be friendly with our toddler even as our toddler is having a meltdown over looking into his ears. He is so patient and really love the way he interacts with our son. We drive from DesMoines to keep him as our primary pediatrician. Would highly recommend him.

I was so appreciative of the time he took and his knowledge to help my son. He found something that was very concerning and was something that I could have never imagined, but Dr. McNew found it and helped us figure out what to do next to give us the best chance to recover safely. I’m very grateful for his attentiveness and his kindness during our visit.

Dr. McNew is always fantastic about making the kids feel comfortable and listened to. He also makes sure he thoroughly explains things to the parents and answers any questions we have. He’s efficient but never makes us feel rushed. We are very happy with him as our kids’ doctor.

Dr McNew and his nurse both made my daughter feel her safe and at ease for her appt. She's normally very shy but was chatting with both of them. He always listens and takes his time with us and it is appreciated greatly.

The office staff, nurse and doctor were all excellent. My son was pretty scared of the experience but Dr. McNew did a great job putting him at ease and making him comfortable in a scary new situation. I love his process of reading a book with the little ones before starting the exam.
