I have been a patient of Dr. Novak since 2012. She is a compassionate and warm person. She spends a lot of time with patients really listens to what I have to say. My pain is going really well!

The staff was terrible. They never acknowledge me when I signed in. At least twice I was scheduled for facet injections and waited over 30 minutes in the reception area and then when I asked to reschedule, they took me to an interior exam room and I waited 20 minutes more.
