Great minds think alike, Gary. I too recently picked up MR. NOVAK, as well as all 5 seasons of DR. KILDARE. It was a mix of patience, nice eBay deals and Deep Discount sales that made it happen. Ever since I watched the superb 87th PRECINCT on DVD last year, I've really been getting into early 60's TV. Even if there were some over the top "message" episodes, many of those dramas from that period knew how to offset the lecturing with fantastic story telling.
