Lafayette, LA |
Definitely one of the greatest doctors we've ever had the pleasure of meeting. He made us feel comfortable in what felt like a stressful situation. He has great bed side manners and was very thorough with us when it came to my treatment plan. Certainly one of my favorite doctors and would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Novakovich was wonderful. Very pleasant bedside manner and listened to my concerns. Took plenty of time with me. I would definitely recommend him to everyone...
in New Iberia, La |
Very satisfied! He doesn't believe in surgery unless it's absolutely necessary. He's very encouraging and thorough in his exams. He answers all your questions. Will continue to see him. Appointments are on time within 15 minutes. Great bedside manner. My name is Janice Segura and I've been a patient of Dr Novakovich for a few months now.

Doctor Novakovich is an intelligent and caring doctor. As an senior I originally went to see him for a second opinion (knee replacement) and found I did not need one. It's been 2 years and since then I've been to see him several times. He is prompt and the wait times are never longer than 5 minutes. If you are unhappy with your current orthopedist definitely check out Dr. Novakovich!!!
