I like Dr Novak. Down to earth easy to talk to and shows concern. Takes time to answer questions. Surgical experience was excellent as was the follow up. I've refered many patients to him for knee surgery.

Dr Novak has given me several shoulder injections, I find him to be very professional, generous with his time and excellent at giving injections that really don't hurt much!
