I was born in the former Soviet Union and moved to New England with my family when I was 3 years old. I spent most of my life on the East Coast before moving to Colorado in 2009. I enjoy mountain biking and photography but mostly stay busy with my three kids and two dogs.
I chose pulmonary and critical care medicine because it allows me to see a large variety of patients, both when they are well and very sick. In the office, my goal is to form long-lasting connections with my patients and help guide them through what is often a chronic illness. I devote my full attention to the person sitting across from me – you. I make sure to take the time to listen and find out as much as I can about you. I offer my patients convenience and can answer your questions by email, phone or video visit. Electronic medical records help me to see the big picture of your health, so I can make good use of our time together and answer your questions.
I have three young children and I spend as much time with them as I can because I realize they will not be little for too much longer. I enjoy mountain biking. Photography, especially nature photography, is my other hobby. I like to travel and try to leave the country at least once per year.
