NAEC Medical Director
Education: Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine
Work Days: Monday, Tuesday, Friday
Dr. Jodi Novak currently serves as our medical director. She has been a valued clinician at NAEC since early 2003 and has been an integral part in shaping the culture of our clinic and has had the wonderful opportunity to see this clinic grow into what it is today. She continues to strive to always find ways to elevate patient care and customer service and was instrumental in helping us achieve our VECCS Facility Certification in early 2016.
Dr. Novak attended Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 2000, then completed a rotating internship focusing on emergency/critical care medicine, surgery, and internal medicine at the VCA Emergency Animal Hospital and Referral Center of San Diego. Following her internship, she remained in southern California practicing emergency medicine over the next two years. Wishing to be closer to family, Dr. Novak relocated to the Capital Region before joining our staff as a full time emergency veterinarian. With a growing family at home, she became a part time staff veterinarian in late 2006. Dr. Novak and her beloved husband, Aaron, share their house with 3 feisty children, an assortment of furry four legged friends, and four funny feathered hens.
