Dr. Grant T. Newman

Collierville Office

Dr. Grant T. Newman joined Pediatrics East in 2000 after finishing his residency at UT Medical Center in Memphis/Lebonheur Children's Hospital. He is board certified by the American Academy of Pediatrics. He and his wife, Dr. Erin Newman, an optometrist, live in Collierville with their two sons.

Dr. Newman serves on the AOA (medical honor society) executive council at UT-college of medicine. He enjoys running, biking and swimming, and he is active in the Collierville youth sports programs, serving as both a member of the advisory board and as a volunteer coach.

His favorite part of being a Pediatrician is “watching those kids that I held as babies, held down as ‘terrible twos’, then cut up with as preschoolers and elementary school students and then eventually seeing them go off to college as responsible young adults! We go through some illnesses, some mild, some serious…some stresses and bumps in the road, but we all end up better for it.”
