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.
