"Dr. Newcome was born and raised in the Decatur area, and graduated from Stephen Decatur High School in 1991. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology at Illinois Wesleyan University in 1995, and completed her doctorate at SIU School of Medicine in 1999. She graduated from SIU Decatur Family Practice Residency in 2002, and has practiced in Decatur and Forsyth for 17 years."
"Dr. Timothy A. Miller and Dr. Kristin Newcome chose to become family medicine physicians because they had the desire to develop personal relationships with their patients. They are concerned that the current health care system, and the changes to come, have and will continue to become an obstacle to the care they wish to provide to their patients. Therefore, they have decided to join a rapidly growing movement to put their patients at a priority."
