Patient Comments (2)
in Des Moines, IA |
He was rude and lacked empathy. It was a nightmare. He didn't feel I should have taken my son to the urgent care clinic when he was severely depressed. He couldn't hide his disdain that my son wouldn't get help on his own. My son was unable to due to his depression. The Dr apparently doesn't have much experience with depression or he would realize people often need help to seek treatment. He chided my son by saying " are you going to let your mommy pay too?" . A complete jerk. Disturbing!!!

Been with Dr. Nowak for +20 years. I trust his experience and advise. Never steered me wrong. I am a reasonably healthy patient presenting few medical challenges at this point. Tho if I were medically challenged, I would not hesitate to use his vast experience to either fix it or recommend a process of who I should see for advise or as a specialist in the Ankeny/DSM area. He relates well to me as we are wired similarly.
