Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and our members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I was born in Russia and grew up in Southern California from the time I was 10. Medicine has always been a strong influence in my life. I was motivated and inspired to become a physician after being exposed to the profession at a very early age. My grandfather was an internist, my grandmother was an urologist, and my aunt was a pediatrician.
I focus on HIV care, as well as hepatitis C and hepatitis B care for my members. My background in general internal medicine is the cornerstone that ties these practices together. I am currently involved in running hepatitis C and HIV treatment clinics for Kaiser Permanente members in Coachella Valley.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente’s philosophy of total health, which considers all aspects of a person’s state of being: body, mind, and spirit. My family life is my highest priority outside of work. I enjoy family outings to Los Angeles Dodgers games and skiing trips to Big Bear with my wife and two daughters.
