Welcome to my Web page. I am 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 and raised in Ukraine and came to the United States when I was 20. Since that time I have lived in Southern California, where I completed my undergraduate, medical, and postgraduate training. Being an immigrant myself, I saw the importance of helping others who did not understand the medical system or could not speak English well enough to access care. This inspired me to help bridge that gap by going into medicine.
I feel that healthy living is the best way to stay healthy, but I am also here to help you when you are sick. My focus is the surgical treatment of ear, nose, and throat problems, head and neck surgery, and facial plastics and reconstructive surgery. But most of all, I want to be your partner in health, and my goal is to provide comprehensive, competent, and compassionate health care for you as a whole person, in mind, body, and spirit.
This life is a gift and I try to live it every day to its fullest. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy family outings to beaches, coaching my children's tennis practices, and trying to remain involved in the activities of my church. My wife, two kids, and I enjoy winter ski trips to local mountains, and simple, quiet family time at home.
