Patient Comments (1)

I have rectal cancer, and Dr. Novak was very courteous and thoughtful when dealing with my medical situation. He explained the procedure in detail, prior to the actual surgeries (plural) and the after surgery. I had little pain, little bleeding and no post surgical issues. I am glad Dr. Novak...more
