Amazing with a couple of areas I needed help with that might have needed a specialist in Olympia. Dr. Novais worked wonders!

Dr. Novais is the best physician I have ever seen. He is always kind, patient, listens well and has strong diagnostic skills. I continue to travel 1.5 hours away to see him after I moved.

I needed a referral for cataract surgery and don't understand why I needed the blood tests, EKG, etc. just to get a referral. Also the office did not send the referral right away and I finally got it a few minutes before my surgery after making several phone calls to the doctor's office and the insurance company.

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.

Dr Jaime Novais is the best physician I have ever had! He's very skilled and knowledgable, empathetic, listens extremely well, explains quickly but in detail, and addresses any question or concern I have with respect and compassion. He's an outstanding physician, and human being.

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.
