This doctor is only in it for the money. Her own practice was closed down in 2018 at which point she joined Cooley Dickinson. Even with piles of abnormal lab results very symptomatic patient and progressing decline of Health she throws her hands up in the air after being wrong about a diagnosis proven through biopsies. She said that there is nothing more that she can do for me based on what her knowledge allows. I wasted a year with this provider I'm sicker and still have abnormal Labs every single time my blood is drawn.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Nowak for several years. In the time I’ve been her patient I’ve referred her to my friends and family and everyone is very, very happy with her. She’s very personable, caring, and committed to her patients. I highly recommend Dr. Klich-Nowak.

Very Through. Investigative and informative. She talks with her parents rather than at them, and listens to them. She always she well prepared for my visits, and aware of all of m health conditions!

She was so kind and helped me understand things better and helped join an already large treatment group as I have a systemic condition. She’s very willing to work with other doctors to help me be my best self!

During my appt with her she actually yelled at me and told me to focus and try listening to her! I told that she needed to repeat the question which was worded differently the second time. I actually told her that I was leaving in the middle of the appt. She became nicer at that point. I had to ask her what her diagnosis was for me since she wasn't clear. She was extremely rude and condescending. I told the receptionist that I would not be returning. Don't waste your time with her.

The WORST experience of my life. She spent first 15 minutes complaining of the government and her job and suggested I ask the government what test I should need. Then stated she didnt have time to hear all my Sx as she had other patients. Every 5 mins the nurse knocked on the door telling her next patient waiting. Dismissive, uncaring, cold, unhappy with her job, rushing me although she was ten minutes late, did not read my medical Hx yet prescribed a med then said find a new Dr. Im leaving.

This was the all time worst medical doctor I have ever had the misfortune to experience and the only provider I have ever taken the time and effort to report to my medical insurance company. She was very short and rude, extremely non-collaborative and came across as highly impatient and uncaring. 0 points on the empathy scale! My sole reason for writing this review is my hope to spare others the awful experience I had.
