About me

I was born in the former USSR and moved to Colorado in 1996 after graduating from medical school in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Colorado is a wonderful place that offers so many natural beauties it’s hard not to fall in love. After six years of residency and fellowship training in New York, my family was looking forward to returning to Denver.
How did I become a doctor? During summer break before 9th grade, I started working in a hospital as a patient assistant/cleaner/transporter. Watching doctor-patient interactions and reading books about great scientists and doctors prompted a question in my mind: Would I be able to do it? And so it began. Many years later I became a neonatologist. After 15 years in practice I still think neonatology is the most fascinating and rewarding specialty in medicine. While celebrating and transforming the lives of my patients and their families, I share their difficult times as well.

About my practice

Our NICU provides care for premature and term infants. Each child and his or her parents are treated as one family unit. Most of the time people need a lot of guidance and support during their NICU stay. It is at the core of our practice to stay in close communication with families, provide reassurance and work treatment plans together. Families deserve to know and understand what’s going on with their child. I’ll do everything I can to help them become part of the care team and feel comfortable taking care of their sick baby. I’ve been involved in designing and implementing new therapies and interventions such as hypothermia (body cooling) for infants with cerebral depression at birth; brain monitoring; gentle ventilation for premature and term infants with vulnerable lungs; and streamlining the admission process for low birth weight infants, making it fast, smooth and quiet.

How I thrive

Outside of my work and family, I enjoy gardening, reading and photography.
