Dr. Nowak treated me in the emergency room at Memorial Hospital in Salinas. He was WONDERFUL. He put 22 stitches in my broken nose, talked to me about my concussion, and reassured me that I would be back to normal soon. I had a follow-up appointment 6 days later and he was just as wonderful there...more
