I got in one visit from this provider the amount of concern and listening without being condescending that I had spent two years looking for in her last provider. I trust this provider fully with my daughters care.

Dr. Novak was thorough and listened to our concerns. We appreciated her helpfulness in finding a new speech therapist quickly. Talking about our child's allergy, Dr. Novak kinda laughed and that felt a bit condescending, but otherwise she was polite. She was friendly enough that we'll probably keep seeing her. Wait time was minimal and the nurses were fantastic.

Dr. Novak is amazing with her teen clients. She listens and offers sound advice. I also appreciated her taking my daughter's privacy seriously. My daughter was fearful that her concerns would be dismissed but was grateful to instead have a positive experience with a knowledgeable provider who addressed all questions and concerns. Dr. Novak is the best pediatric provider I have encountered in my 15 years as a parent. Thank you for paving the way to great health for my children!
