Where I practice
I am glad to have the opportunity to share some information about myself and my credentials. I understand that it is very important for you to feel comfortable with your treating physician, and I hope this page will help you to get to know me.
A life-long and sincere desire of mine has been to become a productive member of the medical profession. The excellence of health care in the United States both clinically and scientifically impressed me when I arrived here at the age of 15 as an immigrant from the former Soviet Union. As I progressed through college and medical school, my interest in the medical field grew even stronger. During my college career, as a result of my interest in hypertension research, I co-authored a paper published in a Hypertension journal.
About my practice
Medicine has created a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way. Being a doctor gives me an opportunity not only to utilize medical skills and knowledge, but also opportunity to listen and respond to your needs. I feel privileged to help you understand what concerns you and facilitate getting you the appropriate care. I feel very honored that my patients have entrusted me with their care, and I strive to treat them as I would my own family.
How I thrive
I firmly believe in living a healthy lifestyle in mind, body, and spirit, and I try to live by this philosophy in my everyday life. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy spending quiet family time at home, going out to cultural and sporting events, participating in my kids' activities, or going on family vacations. I also make it a priority to set aside time to just relax or exercise.
