PHaven’t had my surgery yet but in my dealings with Dr. Kovack, he has been gracious & kind. My surgery is on 12/3/18, the gastric sleeve. I am looking forward to a new ME! Don’t worry I know at times it will be difficult maybe very difficult. However, I know I will be very grateful for the changes in my mind & body. I am already grateful.

Dr. Novack Jr. & staff are professional and informative. I was very nervous and doubtful in determining if the gastric sleeve was for me. Once attending the seminar and meeting the doctor, I had felt a load lifted from my shoulders and my decision was made. I had the gastric sleeve surgery on June 3, 2016 at 225 pounds, today I have lost 70 pounds. Life changing, I am a happy person again. I finally feel like I felt in my 20's, the best decision I made.

Dr. Novack is an exceptional person.i say this because of his caring.He operated on me twice.Both times he explained the procedures and took the time to answer any and all my questions.And after the operations talked to my wife and explained everything and put her at ease.And the follow up care was some of the best of any doctor i have gone to.
