I have been going to Carney Hospital Pain Management dept and I have seen several of the new Drs there and I have to say I like Dr Novak the most he is very kind compassionate and really seems to care how I am feeling. I was very nervous of getting an injection in my back but he was great! It did not help but I think he is a good Dr and I plan on seeing him for now on as I do not Care for Dr Braddy he just told me to lose weight. I know skinny people have pain too!! So See DR Novak!
