I would hope one day you will open a satellite clinic on the west coast of Florida. Weston is a bit of a hull but having Dr. Novaro as my cardiologist is worth it. He is an exceptional doctor who is intelligent, compassionate and a wonderful human being. He is a great asset to your medical staff.

Dr Novarro took the time to review my records from quite a few years ago. He was very patient and answered all my questions, and I had quite a lot. He was and always has been very upbeat and friendly during each of my visits. I left from this visit "really " feeling happy and more knowledgeable about my health status.

office running behind due to bookings. I see Dr Novarro every 6 months. He is great so I do not mind waiting in the pt room . I know he will not rush me, will require cardiac surgery for valve replacement.

Reviewed on Jun 19, 2018

Provider seemed indifferent; seemed rather like I was somewhat of a bother and wasting his time. That said, he was professional and reassuring so I really cannot complain too much. I did not want to see the provider and only visited because my primary had ordered the consult. I was not very comfortable and would not really want to see this provider again. I'm quite sorry to be saying this. Overall, I was given a very good report about my findings and he was knowledgeable so I have no complaints in that regard.

Dr. Novaro was easy to converse with, and he asked us pertinent questions and listened to me. He was requested for a Second Opinion because of complications I have had, for 3 months, since my open heart surgery in December 2017. He gave us confidence and hope, and after the past 2 weeks on his Rx I am showing the best results, and energy, since my operation.
