Welcome to my Web page. I am glad to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I believe it is very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you get to know me.
I was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. It was there that I started my medical training and was first taught the importance of hard work, diligence, and compassion. When I was 18 years old my family immigrated to the United States, where I pursued my studies in medicine and eventually became a physician. I enjoy hiking, traveling, and appreciating the beauty of nature.
I practice general internal medicine. My philosophy is to approach each patient as a unique human being first and then dwell into medical aspects of disease. I believe in the importance of listening to my patients, respecting them, and assisting them the best possible way. Being a doctor allows my patients to share with me their concerns, fears, and hopes, and by having their trust, I will strive to treat them with respect, dignity, and, most importantly, compassion.
I strongly believe in mind, body, and spiritual connection to total health. I believe that by exercising and healthy nutrition you can maintain your physical health. However, it is equally important to work on your spiritual health.
