I have been under Dr Novachek's care starting at U of M . He knows my situation and is knowledgeable and reasonable in what he recommends. Appreciate that I can meet with him in Saginaw

He was in too big of a hurry. It felt like the doctor did not want to listen to any of my questions or concerns. I had waited for 6 months for an appointment. I walked away disappointed and like I had no more answers than when I arrived.

Very concerned

Nov 28, 2022

Didn't focus on main symptoms but did focus on symptoms that could be tied to current conditions. Maybe because the MRI wasn't done yet but I felt like he focused only on conditions I had and not the main symptoms.

I waited 2 months for an appointment with this. Doctor. He came in and seemed very rushed . He was 30 minutes late and every time I tried to ask a question he walked out of the room. I never got any answer to my questions. He was only concerned that I might want him to take over my pain management. I told him I have a pain management Dr and still wasn't allowed to ask questions. He told me to come back in 6 months to the Owosso Muscular dystrophy clinic. I agreed

I've dealt with many neurologists. MANY. IT'S REMARKABLY DIFFICULT FOR THEM TO COMMUNICATE WITH PEOPLE NOT AS EDUCATED AS THEM. DR. NOWACEK COMPLETELY MADE ME FEEL SEEN & HEARD WHILE DESCRIBING THE AWFUL STUFF I'M GOING THRU.
