Guthrie Patient: October 2017
Heather has been my biggest help. She realizes the need to get things done in a timely fashion because of the condition we are dealing with.
Guthrie Patient: September 2017
Heather is one of the most compassionate providers I have ever had! She listens and explains things in a way that I can understand them fully. I would recommend her highly!!
Guthrie Patient: September 2017
Heather is great. I met her when she was filing in at the Erwin Clinic and I decided to make her my primary care physician when form former physician moved on. She is professional, knowledgeable, and speaks openly - traits I value and appreciate.
Guthrie Patient: September 2017
Again, please look at my earlier comments. Heather Novotny RPA-C is the only reason I still travel to Guthrie, all the way from Harrisburg, PA. She knows my history, and my health has improved tremendously ever since I've been under her care. She listens to me, and actually seems to care. Thank you for everything!
