Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Great Dr. You would do well to have someone recording the computer input and let him focus on what he does best. Interact with the patient. I make up that computer input is not the doctors best use of time.

I enjoyed my first visit with Dr. Novias and, above all else, felt that he really listened to what I had to say. For me, that is the most important trait for a good doctor; I must be able to talk with my doctor and feel that I have his undivided attention while he's in the room with me. I felt that with Dr. Novias and look forward to him being my doctor for many years to come.

As regards the present condition with no definitive diagnosis to date and two prior referrals, it was not encouraging to be referred again with an over 6-week wait for the earliest appointment available.
