Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Slipshod medical practices. Medications grossly overprescribed. Appears to have only a limited knowledge of medical protocol and procedures except as they might apply to monetary self-enrichment.

Dr Novak is very thorough and she herself has excellent follow through. Her office staff and scheduling however leaves much to be desired. We were treated very unprofessionally on many occasions. When we have an appointment it takes at least an hour in the waiting room. When an appointment is canceled because the doctor isn’t in, they hesitate to reschedule. Bottom line the staff isn’t “user friendly” in our opinion. We were treated very rude by the staff on more than on occasion. So sad.

Dr Novak has been my primary physician since 1995 and is a caring, careful caregiver. She listens, she tests, she monitors. I have moved to another state and wish I could take her with me. She cried with me when my husband died; encouraged me when I was recuperating from colon resection and has seen me through happy times and tough times. She is the best!! Barbara N. Clark

This was a nightmare. Went in for a rash and ended up paying $2000 for tests and services not asked for and not covered by BCBS. I was referred to a dermatologist and never received diagnosis about the rash. I talked to the rude office manager about the billing and couldn't get anywhere. I asked to talk to the DR. She never called. Now 9 months later I get billed for $410. BCBS says they attempted to contact the office. twice and once by letter and they never called back to resolve issues
