Extremely professional and accessible. I felt very comfortable knowing what was taking place with my surgery, and knowing what to expect from my rehabilitation. Couldn't be happier with my decision to use Dr. Nowak and the Everett Bone and Joint center.

Dr Nowak fixed my hip labral tear. I am now fully recovered and back to running. Long recovery, but definitely worth it.
