Dr. David Oustecky is an experienced board-certified gastroenterologist with deep roots in Long Island. He trained at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. His three years at this academic liver transplant center afforded him the opportunity to treat a wide variety of patients. Dr. Oustecky prides himself on a clinical style that includes spending ample time with each patient to listen to their complete history. He feels that a patient cannot be properly treated without a full understanding of not only the symptoms, but how those symptoms have affected their lives.
Dr. Oustecky's clinical interests include using water for improvement of visualization, comfort and therapy during colonoscopy. He is also dedicated to patient education and has participated in research aimed at helping patients better understand the colonoscopy preparation.
