Patient Comments (2)

I had a retinal detachment diagnosed on a holiday several years ago. My eye doctor made the calls to find a specialist that could see me right away. Dr. Novack was clearly outstanding every step of the way. So glad I ended up with the best! Repaired with a scleral buckle.

Wonderful doctor. Very responsive-- called me back within 10 minutes on a Saturday and offered me a consultation that same day without prior appointment. He seems to be extremely competent and I was very impressed and pleased. I highly recommend him
