Dr. Novak communicates well and is thorough in his examination. I was concerned about flashing light and floaters. He explained everything in an easy to understand manner. I would recommend him to anyone needing a retinal specialist.

I have been a patient of Dr. Novak for many years. He has done several in-office and in-hospital procedures on my eyes including retina-detachment surgeries. All have gone very well. I feel very fortunate to have my eyes and my very vision under his care. Dr. Novak is the perfect definition of a medical professional.

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.
