Dr. Novoa Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Novoa Jr "Dr. Novoa graduated from Calvert Hall College High School in 1985. In 1986, Dr. Novoa enlisted in the US army and was recognized as the Distinguished Honor Graduate of his 91A Army Medic program. After graduation, Dr. Novoa volunteered as a human research volunteer for vaccine testing at the United States Army Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) at Fort Detrick Maryland. After his military enlistment, Dr. Novoa attended the University of Maryland Baltimore county (UMBC) and graduated in 1991. He then entered Meherry Medical College and graduated with honors in 1995. Doctor Novoa ompleted his residency at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC) in 1995. He was then recruited to El Paso and worked with Physicians Healthcare Associates, PA for 3 years until going into solo private practice when he formed First Choice OBGYN Associates, PA in 2002. Since residency, Dr. Novoa has been a patient advocate with a focus on the reduction of the high risk of Cesarean section in the United States. He has been highly critical of the status quo especially regarding the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG). It is for this reason that Dr. Novoa has made a conscious decision not to support and not to be a member of either one of these organizations. Dr. Novoa dedicates greater than 40% of his practice and personal time to the promotion of women's health and women's rights. He is considered an International advocate and expert regarding these subjects, especially regarding the managment of the Essure Permanent sterilization device. Doctor Novoa has 2 children, Noelle Novoa and Julio Cesar Novoa VII. He is recently married to his wife, Danielle Marie Novoa. Dr. and Mrs. Novoa are expecting their first baby in October 2018."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Novoa Jr "Since residency, Dr. Novoa has followed guidelines supporting the safety of evidence based medical management of patient care. His positions on medical care have often been highly critical of established member groups such as the ACOG which could do more for the benefit of women's health.  

His philosphy is best described by the memo of many women advocacy groups, "Patients before Profits."

As an internationally recognized patient advocate,  Dr. Novoa leads by example. "
