Patient Comments (2)
in Petaluma Ca |
I found him to be very caring and his pre-op explanation to be very comprehensive and reassuring, he did a good job as far as the surgery went, but his post-op approach left a bit to be desired. most of his warmth disappeared and he was aloof and short on explanations. I really could have used more post-op information regarding scar tissue, (inside and out) and all the different kinds of pain I would endure and why. pain meds help but understanding the whys makes it easier to bare somehow
Petaluma, CA |
Technically, everything was fine, but I would have liked Dr. Novich to be a little more communicative. When I mentioned a less-invasive procedure (for my problem) that I had seen described on the Internet, he just responded with That's not what we do here. When I said that I felt the incision despite the novocain, he just injected more novocain, without further comment. Similarly, my post-procedure instructions were very brief & to the point. I like more explanation & reassurance from doctors.
