Excellent Care

I have a large pelvic mass and saw many Gynecologists who, I think, were afraid to remove it. I saw Dr. Novas and immediately she agreed to do my surgery. I see patients do not like her. They think she is not friendly. If you need to be friends with your doctor you must not have many other friends. Dr. Novas removed my tumor and I feel good again. Thank you Dr. Novas!!

She is the worst!

I had my first official prenatal appt today. After undergoing many rounds of fertility treatments, I was released to my OB practice. I absolutely love all of the doctors at this practice except Dr. Novas. When I called to schedule they said they only had her available. Gee I wonder why? She was 1.5 hours late for my appointment and then got defensive when I expressed my anxiety over that. She also got mad when I said I wouldn't be able to have labs drawn because I had to get back to work as I had already been at her office for a total of 2.25 hours! She did a quick ultrasound and said the baby looked good. When I asked what the heartbeat was measuring she said "uh, like in the 150s." That was a total lie because she didn't even measure it! This practice had a policy that you must see all four doctors during your pregnancy, and I'm glad I won't have to see her anymore!!

Avoid her, the rest of the practice is fine.

I saw Dr. Novas for the first time, after having a Mirena IUD inserted and removed by her colleague, Dr. Dohr. My appointment with Dr. Novas was for my annual exam. My experience with Mirena was honestly just awful. I experienced increasingly debilitating joint pain in my fingers, elbows, knees, and back. By the time I connected it to the IUD I had had it for almost a year, and the pain was so bad that I was taking meloxicam and waiting for my appointment with a rheumatologist. As a last resort I had Mirena removed. Two days later my pain completely disappeared and has not returned. I am Med and pain free! I thought that this information was something that I should share with my doctor, so I did. Not ONLY did she say that my experience was so rare that it "isn't worth mentioning", but she then said that "although there are many complaints by [her] patients of systemic symptoms, there is no hard evidence that the hormones travel outside of the uterus." I was flabbergasted. I will not, under any circumstance, be returning to her for so much as a paper cut.

My daughter died

I trusted this doctor with my life and now my deceased babies life. She promised me everything was going to be ok but instead she yelled And cursed at me during labor and when I kept bleeding she didn't care and told me to stop crying about it. Then when I cried saying my baby is coming out she didn't care until my daughters head was out and her color was black and blue. My daughter didn't even cry or take a breath and then there was no heartbeat. My baby died because of this doctor.

Best Doctor

Dr. Novas is the finest Obstetrician I have ever had. I have had several babies with other doctors and she is the BEST!!! I did not need my doctor to be my friend. I needed my doctor to deliver my baby and keep us both healthy.
