Dr. Persky is board certified in Gastroenterology. His practice encompasses all of gastroenterology, although he has a special interest in Inflammatory Bowel Disease and diseases of the small intestine.

He is considered an expert in the interpretation of these complex studies.
Dr. Persky has published multiple articles on the management of infectious and ischemic diseases of the large intestine, and has written a textbook chapter on this subject. He has also published several articles on drug induced liver disease. Additionally, he served on the Medical Advisory Board for Gastroenterology and Endoscopy News, a widely read monthly newspaper for the gastroenterology community, from 2001 to January of 2007.
