    This was the worst service I have ever experienced at a doctor's office. The wait times are long, the receptionists are difficult to get a hold of, and no one ever calls you back. All I needed was birth control and I couldn't get the help I needed. I eventually decided enough was enough and left to another doctor.

    Wonderfull doctor and staff. Will recommend

    I absolutely love this office. Front desk is always friendly, Vanessa is fantastic, and Dr. Novoa couldn't be more caring. They can generally get you well informed on each stage of your pregnancy.

    I was impressed with my experience at the doctor’s office. I was always very satisfied with the care and attention that I received. Dr Novoa made me feel comfortable throughout my pregnancy. I would highly recommend him. I am already referring my friends. Thank you so much!

    Very compassionate and very professional. He delivered my baby and is the best doctor in El Paso

    Yuck what a terrible dr, he could care less about you or your baby. He spends as little time as he can with you. His office staff are rude, he cancels appointments often, I would NOT recommend him.

    Was courteous and explained all procedures with detail. Would recommend.

    I had juvederm placed in my lips by Dr Novoa and not only did my lips look like a stage curtain opening (he called it a cupids bow), he never massaged the injection sites at ALL and told me to suck on a popsicle to help it. In the end, I had to massage my lips myself to break up the pockets he created and now, I have hard nodules in my lips. This is over a YEAR later by the way. I NEVER had this happen before. I won't even go into the fact that he literally spends only 5mins with you.

    I had my son the beginning of 2016 and it was a horrible experience. He rushes appointments and doesn't really seem to care. I was at a weekly visit when he told me I was 4 cm dilated and to go to the hospital. Right when they told me I was ready to push Novoa realized my baby was breached and I had to have an emergency C-section. Now, 8 months later, I have tissue built up and my scar looks like a disaster. PLEASE DO NOT GO TO HIM! I regret not switching when I was still early in my pregnancy.

    Dr. Novoa forced me to have a csection after only going to him because I wanted a vbac. He said he would do the csection or he'd release me to umc to see which doctor would be willing to do a trial of labor. Coincidentaly enough, this was when I was 40 weeks pregnant and he wouldn't see me because they were moving office locations and remodeling. They called me 1 day before my week 39 visit to tell me the doctor would not be seeing anyone for 2 weeks because of relocation. Worst dr ever.

    I have seen this doctor for 3 of my other pregnancies and had a good experience. Today I was not seen because I was 16 minutes late to my appointment. I come from NM to see this doctor. I felt sick and had to pull over a couple of times so it made me late. And they didn't even consider seeing me. So I will no longer be with this doctor thanks to his rude staff! Very disappointed in them.
