'Cowboy' Jack Novek

Lymphoma;  Prostate Cancer;  Skin Cancer

I am 78 years old and have owned horses for 68 of those years. I am a cowboy through and through. My father gave me my first pony when I was just five years old and my first horse when I was 10. I have had hundreds of horses since. I also used to train the ponies down at the race track.

    I am very pleased to have the counsel of Dr. Aphale who is a distinguished Dermatology physician. I was also pleased by the attention at the reception desk; especially since I was 20 minutes late for my appointment. The medical assistants were effective and charming as well. A superb experience and I will seek out Dr. Aphale and his team for my future dermatological needs.
