I have shoulder pain for over ten years. I have tried physical therapy and Voltaren and nothing has worked. My chiropractor recommended to see him. He reviewed my MRI & X-Ray and took the time to explain clearly what has happened to my shoulders. He told me using external Voltaren will not work for me. Because a lot of my pains are from inside due to arthritis. And I should take Advil or something instead. That explains why I have tried all kinds of external creams and none of them works. And no other specialist has told me that before.

Novak operated on my right knee. Because of his incompetence I had to get four more surgeries. He left a piece of cement the size of a dime in my knee from his surgery. This man is a hack

Dr. Novak is an exceptionally skilled orthopedist. He is all about helping his patients heal well & with as little pain as possible. He highly recommended the “ice machine.” He was 100% right. After a 90 plus percent tear, my shoulder was healthy & without pain much more quickly than most. He is an upbeat & positive doctor who sees his patients without any long time sitting in the waiting room. He explains your options & makes recommendations according to your needs.

My son came to see Dr Novak after a bike crash. He was very thorough and found an issue that the ER didn’t even notice. He is very professional and takes time in analyzing the situation. Asks very good questions about the injury as well. We have had more than one family member see Dr Novak and always found him to be consistent in his approach.

Dr. Novak’s virtual visit was punctual, his instructions to the patient - my mother was clear and precise, his diagnosis was conveyed in a very comprehensible manner with illustrations. And his kindness and care shown to my mom made a big difference in helping ease her anxiety over her health concerns.

My son broke his wrist during corona pandemic but Dr. Novak and OrthoVirginia were very efficient and professional to get us through this incident. We felt safe the entire time and appointments have been short and easy to schedule. We have been quite pleased and would definitely recommend both Dr. Novak and OrthoVirginia.

Dr. Novak is a very knowledgable doctor and excellent surgeon. He is very professional also friendly, and takes time explaining in details regarding conditions and recommended procedures. He also specializes in sports medicine and understands what needs to be done for sports related injuries, and how to improve conditions for athletes. I’ve had an arthroscopic torn meniscus procedure on my knee done by Dr. Novak, and an office visit due to another knee pain, and the results for both were excellent.

Rotator cuff repair – Dec 06, 2019

Dr. Novak is a knowledgable doctor and excellent surgeon. He performed an ACL reconstruction and partial meniscectomy on my right knee after a home accident. I healed completely without any pain or chronic knee issues. After recovery, I began and maintained a fitness regimen which includes high impact cardio at least twice a week for the past eight years. Recently I suffered an unfortunate gym injury and am once again putting my trust in Dr. Novak to diagnose and treat my issue.
