Verified Patient Reviews
James novick is like the charming absent minded professor. He's funny, honest, and very professional. A tell it like it is kind of Doctor. I felt very comfortable in his office and feel confident that he is taking the necessary steps to figure out what's going on with my health. I would recommend him to other patients.
I visited the doctor about 3 weeks ago with lots concerns about stomach and digestion problems. He gave time to hear me out and very patient enough to advise me with every question. Prescribed me some medicine. He said he would give me a call to tell me about the center to get the tests done. I gave my ultrasound test. After a week of visit I had been following him for center details and for ultrasound reports. I would have called the reception for about 20 times now and yet he has not got back to me. I am very much disappointed with the doctors negligence. I had to cancel his follow up appointment and looking for another doctor now.
Dr Novick is great - very down to earth and to the point. He is thorough and affable, cracks the occasional joke (not inappropriate). He is also great at performing procedures, answering questions, addressing concerns and being sure you are informed about your procedure, what to expect, what to do ahead of time, etc. I've been seeing him for several years now, whenever I have a GI problem. It can be difficult to reach his office, however I used ZocDoc online to successfully schedule an appointment.
Doctor was really patient enough to listen to my whole problem. He routed me to the right doctor and gave a reasonable explanation to what might have happened. The office staff were very courteous. I had no complaints about this visit at all. I recommend this doctor to new patients for sure.
he was very thorough and I felt like he really cared about my problems… I will most definitely go back :-)
Very professional and up to date with the latest development in his field.
Caring doctor. Good communication and highly scientific approach.
