Dr Novaro was extremely patient with us during the visit. My dad doesn't speak any English, so I have to translate back and forth during each doctor visit. It can be tedious. Dr Novaro allowed us the time needed for the translation, all questions and concerns me or my dad had. He clearly explain everything. He did not rush us what so ever. I truly appreciate his kindness.
