Awesome Doctor and staff!!
Anthem, AZ |
I see a lot of Doctors for various health problems. I must say that out of them all I look forward to my appointment with Dr Novack every time. He tells you what is happening in terms I can understand, and the solutions available. His front office staff and assistants are very friendly and knowledgeable. One doctor I could recommend to anyone without a doubt is Dr. Novack and his staff.
Prescott, AZ |
I want to make it very clear that I NEVER had an appointment with Dr. Novak. My review is based on my experience with his office staff. They were extremely unhelpful, inconsiderate, and obtuse. They were not going to give you any information unless you asked the specific correct question and then some of that information was wrong. It was very frustrating and they come across as uncaring.
Peoria, AZ |
Highly recommended Dr. Novack and his wonderful office staff.

Great. Can't say enough about Dr. Novack and his staff
Phoenix, Az |
Dr. Novack is friendly, answers all questions and is informative about patient injuries and the recovery process. I have been to see him more than once and I would go back to him again.
Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Novack put a cast on a sprain (no fracture). The agreed cast time was 2 weeks but the Dr. scheduled the follow up for 4 weeks later. The doctor refused to speak to us to give us an appointment 2 weeks after the cast was put on as was agreed in the office prior to being cast which would have left my daughter immobile for 4 weeks. We were forced to pay for the appointment and had to get a second opinion to get the cast removed and get the proper care. Not a good experience.

Wonderful new office and great with my whole family
Mesa, AZ |
Dr Novak and his staff were all professional and friendly. We would definitely refer this office and Dr.

I started visiting Dr Novack due to a work related injury. From the beginning Dr Novack and his staff have been nothing less than incredible. This includes working with my claim adjustor to ensure I was on a path to improve my injury. Dr Novack takes the time to listens to my concerns while identifying course of actions for improvement. He is engaged, positive, and an active listener. I have recommended him to friends and acquaintances. I trust Dr Novack to be honest and get me back to normal.
Phoenix, AZ |
I saw Dr. Novack for shoulder pain. As soon as I walked in the door I was greeted with a smile! He took the time to talk to me and answer all my questions. His staff is also very friendly!
Phoenix, AZ |
The receptionist that answered my call was rude and condescending. She made no effort to help understand our needs for Dr. Novack's services even though we were former customers. She appeared to have little interest in whether we needed to see Dr. Novack prior to their "first available appointment" a week later even though my son had a broken bone.
in Phoenix, AZ |
This Dr. let my son leave his office after his cast was taken off with discoloration, swelling, and bleeding from the hand he worked on. We had to go to the E.R. the next day for a serious infection that was caused from poor service we received from Dr. Novack. This Dr. never once tried to clean the infected area or even think about prescribing antibiotics. Would never recommend him. Actually going out of my way to let everyone I know be aware of this situation.

great new office! much better managed than the old one!
in Phoenix Az |
The Dr is rushed and doesn't seem to spend time or have time and you will wait an hour past your appointment time. The Dr's assistant is very rude and she doesn't follow thru on her callbacks. .
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Novack is an excellent Doctor! He has fixed my son, more than once!!!! As long as he is in practice he will be our first call when in Ortho need!!!
in Phoenix, AZ |
my daughter is 5. she broke her arm on the monkey bars. she was very scared when she went to see dr. novack because of her experience in the emergency room. becky( the assistant) took us to a room and she manged to change a scared 5 year old into a smiling 5 year old in less than a few minutes. she taked to her on her level and made her feel safe. then doctor novack came in and made my daughter laugh. he answered all my questions. i had a wonderful experience.
in Phoenix, AZ |
In my opinion the staff is terrible. They are rude & don't do what they say they will do (this includes returning phone calls). Seems they don't care about their patients because if they did they wouldn't treat people the way they do. This Dr rarely runs on time and his assistant acts like it's ok to wait almost an hour for appointments. They have no respect for me or my time. I don't reccommend Phoenix ortho - stay away and go somewhere else where you'll be treated with dignity & respect.
