Dr. Novak is part of an outpatient practice that utilizes the SMH Medical Hospitalist Program. Should you be admitted to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, you may come under care of our dedicated team of onsite First Physicians Group Medical Hospitalists. This team of physicians and advanced practice providers work with your primary care physician to manage your care while in the hospital, and then communicates your hospitalization and post-discharge care after you leave the hospital. Communication between the hospitalist team and your primary care provider is streamlined with dual access to your charts in the same electronic medical record system.
Any medical issues or follow up care you may need post-discharge from the hospital should be directed back to your primary care physician. Whether your hospital stay follows treatment in the emergency room or your stay was recommended by your primary care physician, our hospitalists work onsite 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure patients receive the highest quality care.
