I grew up in Russia and attended medical school there. I came to the United States in April 2000. I did my Internal Medicine internship at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and my residency at Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara in Northern California. I finished my residency in 2005 and started practicing traditional internal medicine. I became a full time hospitalist in 2007. I am currently practicing at Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital in Vancouver, Washington.
I take care of hospitalized patients with multiple conditions. I try to be as thorough as possible and take time to listen to the patient. We have a great team of doctors and nurses at Legacy Salmon Creek Hospital.
I like to take walks, garden, read and do crafts. I enjoy going ice skating with my daughter. I also love to cook. I wish more people cooked for themselves instead of eating out as they would be healthier this way.
