Chula Vista, CA |
I feel very lucky to have been accepted as a patient by Dr. Novak. He has handled serious problems quickly and accurately. He is open to listening. GREAT doc.
in San Diego, CA |
Dr. Novak is an exceptional Doctor.. I have been to Stanford Medical Center , some prominent high profile physicians for some ailments . However, by far, Dr. James Novak is the most competent medical Doctor I have ever seen. Great human being,
in La Jolla |
Dr. Novak is a true diamond in the rough! I have been to Harvard, Duke and Stanford doctors who could not figure out what was wrong with my fast decline in health. Dr. Novak immediately properly diagnosed me and has given me hope to live again. I have Lyme disease after several tick bites on the East Coast. He is far more intelligent, compassionate, and up to date on research than any other MD out there. I highly recommend him 10+ 100%

He is a good doctor but his office is run without regard for the very sick people he serves. He refuses to answer questions about difficulties you might have with dugs or directions given. If you have a question a nurse will not answer it or ask him for you. There are NO return calls. You are left to make another appointment which can take 3-6 weeks. This presents a problem when one is in crisis.
