Testimonials for Erik J. Novak, M.D., Ph.D.

We take great pride in providing outstanding customer service and helping all patients return to active and healthy lifestyles. Our orthopedic surgeons combine compassion with expert orthopedic care, building relationships with patients while relieving pain and increasing mobility and quality of life. Read what some of our past patients have to say about the Proliance Orthopedic Associates team.

Dr. Novak was very knowledgeable.  Everything he explained about my ankle condition and the upcoming procedure was very easy to understand.  Thank you Dr. Novak and team.


My son Jeremy ruptured his Achilles tendon just before Memorial Day.  He had the repair surgery done by Dr. Novak.  I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the great care he received at Proliance.  Every single person we came in contact with were super people.  I was so impressed with the caring nature of all involved.  It was a pleasure to deal with all staff members.  Again, we just want to say a big THANK YOU for the great care.

I received foot fusion surgery for arthritis on Nov. 11, 2015. I feel great now. I just went back to my bowling in March. I am also able to walk my dog at least six blocks, where I was only able to walk a few blocks before. Dr. Novak was very upfront. I was non-weight bearing for three months before surgery.

I also told him the other day that I was going to try golfing again. I haven’t golfed in 1.5 years. I am thoroughly excited to get back at it.

The physicians at Proliance Orthopedic Associates do a great job. I really enjoy the doctors there. I feel great now. The surgery was successful and I have no pain now that I had prior to surgery. Dr. Novak did a great job!

I had surgery on February 3 of this year. I was terrified and I had not taken care of my ankle for three months prior to surgery. Dr. Novak was really understanding and listened to my problems. I am heavy and he did not mention that but gave me a proper diagnosis. He was also able to work with me for the holidays and referred me to the prosthetics team to get me a brace to wear to help stabilize me.

On the day of surgery, I was terrified, but Dr. Novak reassured me and also reassured my fiancé which was really important to me. I am doing wonderful now and I go back to work in one week. Dr. Novak had very clear instructions post-surgery and my recovery has been really smooth. I have had no problems.

I’m over the hill happy with my experience and recovery.

WOW, where to begin? Firstly, I want to thank Dr. Novak, he is an excellent doctor and very experienced. I broke my fibular playing soccer in July and was in a lot of pain. He immediately talked about surgery and was able to repair my broken fibular the following week. Recently he helped remove two broken screws that hold my fibular and tibia together. He is so professional, knowledgeable, friendly, caring and has such a great bedside manner.

And secondly, the staff at Proliance Orthopedic are very friendly. The Renton location is very busy because of their expertise. I highly recommend Dr. Novak.
