    I was terrified when diagnosis was breast cancer. Dr Nowak was my savior. He was kind and gentle. Very knowledgeable he gave me strength to get through this horror

    My husband was terrified. An earlier hernia surgery had torn and he was referred to Dr. Nowak in terrible pain. Dr. Nowak carefully explained the procedure and reassured my husband that, while he couldn't promise there wouldn't be pain, it would be manageable. One day out he's feeling great. We are so grateful to Dr. Nowak for his professionalism, kindness and expertise. (One nurse said he could do the surgery blindfolded, he was so good, and we agree!)
