Testimonials for Erik J. Novak, M.D., Ph.D.
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.
I was seen by Dr. Novak following an injury of crushed bones that put me in Valley Medical Center. Dr. Novak attended to my injuries. He and his staff were friendly and courteous and I received top quality care. I would definitely recommend POA to my friends and family. You all are the best!
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.
