Peter D. Newcomer, MD

About

Dr. Newcomer is a primary care physician with a special interest in preventive medicine. As the senior vice president and chief clinical officer at UW Health, he provides clinical leadership for patient care across the UW Health enterprise, with the goal of ensuring that patients in all settings receive consistently exceptional, evidence-based care and an outstanding patient- and family-centered experience.

The most important thing is listening to your patient. Usually your patient will tell you what’s going on even if they don’t do it with words. Listening for those things the patient is not saying, or for the question you haven’t asked - that’s really the key to making the diagnosis.
