Provider Bio down arrow

​Dr. Annie Novak, pediatrician, sees newborns to young adults.

Dr. Novak truly loves what she gets to do every day: work with children. After moving from Vermont back to Wisconsin, she's now doing it in an area she calls home.

Dr. Novak grew up in Antigo, Wisconsin and was first drawn to health care in high school through volunteer work in the emergency department. She went on to earn her nursing degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, but knew she wanted to further her education and work as a physician.

Dr. Novak was a student with the Wisconsin Academy for Rural Medicine in Marshfield, Wisconsin and received her medical degree from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison, Wisconsin. She completed her residency at the University of Vermont Children's Hospital in Burlington, Vermont.

“I am focused on seeing the development of patients, monitoring them as they meet their milestones and addressing any medical concerns they may experience throughout childhood," she said.

She feels lucky to be working with kids every day in the Northwoods. “Kids are amazing and each interaction is so completely different," she said.

For Dr. Novak, clear communication is at the core of each interaction she has when meeting with her patients and their families.

“I want to meet my patients where they are at" she said. “I want to make sure my patients and their families are heard and fully understand the advice that I offer. I'm fully invested in their health and well-being."

When not at work, Dr. Novak enjoys running, hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking and spending time with her husband, two daughters, and their extended family in the area.​
