Great Otho

I saw Dr. Novakovich in Lafayette,La he is very good at what he does.He has taken care of my shoulder and my knees. I was to have Rotate cuff surgery,but I developed back issue, so he said take care of back first. Before he could do my shoulder surgery, he has moved to Ruston,La. If anyone needs a great Otho surgery, call him. I hated to here he was leaving Laf.,I had to find another Otho doctor,and I did another great doctor. Thanks Dr. Novakovich for all you did for me. Good luck
