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.
in Washington |
Always made sure that you understood what was going on and made you feel comfortable. Did not rush me back to work and ensured I was ready before releasing me to work. I completely trust Dr. Nowak.

Thanks to Dr. Nowak I can run ultras again. Before ACL and meniscus surgery I couldn't run a mile without pain causing me to stop. I had surgery in 12/13...took a year building muscle, slowly eased back in to running, and now run (and backpack, skate ski, etc) pain free. His skill and confidence in his ability allowed me to return to my passion of playing in the mountains. I recommend him to every person I know with knee issues! There are not enough accolades I can bestow -great doc and team!
in Arlington, WA |
Dr. Nowak did a labram repair on my hip. It was my first surgery so I was nervous but he and his staff did a wonderful job, my recovery went great and surgery was a success. He was thorough in explaining the procedure and what to expect in recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Nowak.

Great experience with Dr. Nowak and Everett Bone and Joint. Labrum repair surgery turned out great, my shoulder feels better than it has in years.
in Mill Creek, WA |
Dr. Nowak did surgery on my Left Side Rotator Cuff. The surgery went great, follow-up was through, explanation of any side affects from surgery was very through.. Overall Dr. Nowak & his staff was very professional.
in Seattle, WA |
After a year of struggles, he performed a surgery on my labrum and I feel better now than I have since January 2015. I would 100% recommend him to my family and friends.
in Everett, WA |
I have felt perfectly satisfied with Dr. Nowak's treatment of me; I have never felt doubt about his knowledge, opinions, or skill. He understands the athletic aspect of getting back into sports which was a great relief to me. He is incredibly thorough in his instructions, he is very helpful, and he cares about the well-being of his patients. I am so glad that I was able to have Dr. Nowak perform my two hip surgeries and guide me through the recovery.
