Dr. Novatt could not be better. His knowledge and skill are remarkable. Dr. Novatt truly cares about his patients. I recommended Dr. Novatt to a friend who was having serious problems with the diagnosis and treatment from someone else. She constantly thanks me. I wish I could give him more than five stars!
