    Dr. Newman obtained his Doctorate degree from Texas A & M University, School of Veterinary Medicine in May of 1985. He and his family moved to Gatesville in June of 1995 upon purchasing the clinic formerly known as Bar L Veterinary Clinic from Dr. "Snub" Liles. The clinic name was then changed to Bar N which was the family brand. "We wanted to move back to this part of Texas and were looking for a practice located in a smaller community to finish raising our kids in. We came into town on West Hwy. 84 and when we saw the view of the Courthouse as we came over the hill, we just felt this was the place we'd been looking for." Prior to moving to Gatesville, Dr. Newman had practiced in Hobbs, NM for 10 years working alongside his older brother, Dr. Don Newman, who is also a veterinarian.
