Kaiser Permanente provider
My gender: Female
Yes, my office is accepting new patients. May require referral.
I graduated magna cum laude and received my medical diploma from Russian Friendship University, the leading medical school in Moscow. I participated in cancer research at Swedish Hospital in Seattle and Vanderbilt University in Nashville. I completed my residency program at The University of Tennessee and completed my fellowship in Oncology/Hematology at Vanderbilt University in 2005. I joined the Ingrid Cancer Center at Vanderbilt University as an assistant professor through 2011, and joined Kaiser Permanente in January 2012. I am board certified in Internal Medicine, Medical Oncology and Hematology. I am a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology and American Society of Hematology.
My areas of focus are prostate, bladder, kidney, neuroendocrine, hematologic, melanoma, breast, lung, brain, and colorectal malignancies, and benign hematology. I adhere to promoting effective, ethical, evidence-based cancer and hematologic treatment. I tailor treatment according to the best scientific evidence and preference of each individual patient.
I have a keen interest in international women’s issues and am involved in the international women’s movement, first as a young leader, and now as an international women’s forum member. I have been involved as a volunteer physician in Casting for Recovery, a special program for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by breast cancer to gather in a natural setting and learn the sport of fly fishing. I’m an active member of Physicians’ Looking for Meaning in Medicine since 2005, a program intended to reconnect physicians with the human dimension of their work. I like to travel, dance, go to classical concerts, and spend time with my husband, daughter, and two Rhodesian ridgebacks.
