DR. DAVID NOVICK
For more than 24 years, Dr. Novick has been in the private practice of gastroenterology with Digestive Specialists, Inc., in Dayton, OH. He routinely performs colonoscopy and upper GI endoscopy procedures and has a special interest in liver disease. He has authored more than 65 medical publications on hepatitis B, C, and D, liver cirrhosis, HIV infection, colon polyps, medication-assisted treatment of opioid addiction, and related topics.
Married with four grown children, Dr. Novick finally finds himself with more time to pursue other interests, such as humor and writing.
