If Dr. Novak has nothing to hide, then perhaps he should respond to the concerns stated here on the ratemds profile page that he and his staff manage?

Lindsay, you alone should understand the reasons why he is universally hated amongst our colleagues at VIHA. Please do not compromise your integrity on account of your personal relationship with him.

When I first read the negative and inflammatory comments about Dr. Novak, I must admit it caused me some concern, since I am a patient of his. I asked my GP his opinion and he assured me that as far as he was concerned, Paul Novak was an excellent cardiologist and that if any of the accusations were true he would be aware of them. I was in the Royal Jubilee Hospital recently undergoing a procedure, and took the opportunity to ask my cardiac nurse for an opinion of Dr. Novak and was instantly reassured that I was in very good hands. Dr Novak performed an A-Flutter ablation two years ago which not only eliminated my A-Flutter but also had a positive effect on my A-Fib. It is unfortunate that unsubstantiated criticism and outright lies can be posted so easily and anonymously. The person responsible should be ashamed of himself and realize that he or she is also causing unnecessary stress and worry for Dr. Novak's patients. MW

Wow, someone has it out for Dr. Novak. I work with him (not FOR him) out of the jubilee hospital, I'm a post-ablation nurse. The anonymous hate unfortunately prompts phone calls from his referred patients to me asking if he's as bad as the website says. Let me say this: I would trust myself or any one of my family members in to his care. He is absolutely top of his game. He is succinct, efficient and thorough. His practice is evidence based and we have weekly rounds with all 5 electophysiologists present where we bring up difficult cases and Dr. Novak seeks advice from his peers and his advice is also sought after from his peers. The pouty, finger pointing hate-spreading is transparent. Probably a VIHA staff member who simply doesn't like him and is trying to diminish his reputation. I suggest you step out from behind your veil of anonymity if your opinions are so valid. For anyone referred to him, if you actually have concerns because of what this person is repeatedly posting, feel free to call me at the AF clinic so I can give you some context and reassurance. Lindsey Ward, RN, BSCN, CCNC nurse clinician at Island Health Atrial Fibrillation Clinic

Will he be attending the grand opening of the Royal Jubilee Hospital's new cardiac ward in July?

I wouldn't be surprised if he was the distant cousin of Clifford Olsen.

With his career and reputation going down the tubes, he resorts to requesting that his friends and colleagues write positive reviews on his behalf.

Just finished a session with Paul Novak who handled himself perfectly as he described to me the process by which he determined a course of action that we'll take for dealing with my condition. He was polite with my wife and with me as he got to the point and we dealt with the issues. I'm not particularly interested in making friends with a doctor who might see me once or twice so I don't need the bedside manner stuff. I want a competent professional who calls a spade a spade - he was perfect.

No bedside manner at all. Arrogance speaks loudly!
