Patient experiences & stories

In Their Words

Dr. Novak made sure to ask if what she was explaining made sense to me every time she explained something. She listened to me and validated what I was saying. I really don't like doctors, but she felt safe to talk to and I am very glad she's my provider.

My first appt. with Dr. Novak. I like her. Always risky getting a new Doctor. She did a very good job of relating to and understanding my specific concerns. And made some nice suggestions as to future care and changes in eating habits. Glad I picked her to make my appointment with.
