Specialties

Dr. Josh P Novic has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

He did not listen or believe that I had a seizure disorder

When I saw this Dr. I had been having seizures for about three years. I was diagnosed by another Dr in the Bay Area, I was referred to him by my insurance for a closer dr to keep an eye on me. On my first visit he didn't do any tests he literally sat across from me and said, by looking at you I can tell you that you do not have a seizure disorder, there is nothing wrong with you. If that was true I don't think I would have completely blacked out and fell face first into my bathroom sink and knocked out my front teeth. I don't mind finding rides to my amazing dr 36 miles away. I would never recommend this dr to anyone!!!!

After several discouraging experiences with ED doctors and other neurologists for my son's seizure disorder it was a relief to meet Dr. Novic. He spent time really listening to everything our family had been through, was very thorough and immediately got us headed on the right track with specialists. His whole staff is very attentive, caring, and helpful. I would recommend him to anyone!
