I was a resident of seattle in 2014 and dr. novais was my primary care physician. I was impressed with him at that time and, when I returned to seattle I made certain that he was a participant in my heath insurance plan.

One thing that came up is that I was asked to fill out a POLST. I wanted to check the DNR box, but doctor wouldn't sign the form. He encouraged me to go home to discuss with my wife and 'think it over.' This is the second time a physician would not 'let' me check the DNR box (happened a few years ago with another physician). I respect his position, but still intend to record a form with the DNR box checked.

I had a prescription on which the instructions were not clear, even to the pharmacist, so I had to go back on MyChart for clarification before using.

Dr. Novais has cared, not only for me, but for both of my parents, an elderly aunt, elderly uncle, my brother and my cousins. He has done so with a natural warmth and a great intelligence. In every case, he has been extremely thorough, vigilant, and well-advised in preventative tests or procedures he has ordered, and in referrals he has made. His efficiency in applying excellent routine care, and his very astute vigilance in paying attention to even subtle findings, are qualities that are rare and invaluable. As myself, a zealous caregiver but a somewhat reticent patient, I can also say that Dr. Novais is very skillful at seeing to it that I follow the routine preventative measures to ensure my continued excellent health. We are extremely grateful to have him as our physician.
