After two years in the Air Force, where as Captain Newman he practiced Pediatrics at Travis Air Force Base in California, he returned to the east coast and, after a year of solo practice, he joined with Dr. Leroy Engel in partnership at 14 Soundview Avenue in White Plains in 1963. This was, of course, the genesis of Soundview Pediatrics. Since 1969, Dr. Newman has been an attending physician at Blythedale Children’s Hospital, a pediatric rehabilitation hospital in Valhalla. He is presently the coordinating physician for the infants in the Day Hospital Program. Dr. Newman is also past President of Blythedale's Medical Executive Committee, and is Chairman of the Infection Control and Prevention.
