I have seen many doctors to find out why I lost the ability to walk and use my limbs. With no help from other doctors I was on the search. I was recommended to Dr. Novak and am thankful. He found I had Lyme Disease and put me under treatment. Within the first month I saw improvement, after 5 months I was walking again and now a year later close to normal. He saved my life. He provided me and natural care. I recommend everyone to him.
