Hello and welcome to my Web page! I am very excited to have the opportunity to allow you to get to know me. It is very important that you feel comfortable with your physician, and I would like to share with you some information about me and my philosophy on practicing medicine.
I was born and raised in Belarus. Coming from a family of physicians, I wanted to become a doctor as long as I can remember. I always felt the need to be able to help other people to stay healthier and happier. I graduated from Minsk State Medical Institute and then moved to United States. I completed my internal medicine residency in University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, PA and stayed in private practice for next 10 years before joining Kaiser Permanente. I feel very privileged to be a part of this wonderful organization.
As an internal medicine physician, I work together with members to keep them as healthy as possible, and to take care of them when they sick. The physician-patient relationship is very important to me. I believe in open communication and welcome your questions and concerns.
I believe in a strong connection between body and mind. I love performing arts (ballet, opera, plays, concerts, movies), nature and any outdoor activities (like swimming, hiking, boating, enjoying the sunset while walking on the beach), which I really enjoy sharing with my wonderful husband and beautiful children.
