Patient Comments (3)
in Beachwood, OH |
I cannot praise Dr. Novak enough. He saw me when I had an emergency retinal tear and spent the time to explain everything before performing laser surgery. He put me completely at ease and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing to see a Retinologist.
in Olmsted Falls, OH |
Dr Novak is thorough and professional. He is generous in taking patients any time and went out of his way to get me into surgery quickly when needed.

I have been a patient of Dr. Novak for 14 years. During that time he has been consistently patient, professional, understanding and kind, as well as being a recognized expert in his field. I would recommend him to anyone needing his expertise.
