The relationship between a patient and their doctor remains a treasured and essential pillar in promoting a person’s well-being. Their trust is built on the foundation of the physician’s capabilities to navigate both the patient’s health background and accommodating one’s individualized preferences. My MDVIP-affiliated, personalized medicine practice allows me to spend the necessary amount of time with each of my patients to better understand their unique needs. This level of dedication and patience has become especially hard to find in today’s high demand and fast-paced practice of medicine. I also offer conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments that start on time, which may be found in concierge medicine practices.

My expertise in improving your health comes from being dually board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine & American Osteopathic Association, followed by four intense years of practicing internal medicine as a full time hospitalist at St. Francis Hospital in Roslyn, New York; a high volume, busy institution that is known as Long Island’s top cardiac center. A hospitalist spends every work day as the lead attending in managing their patients’ care and coordinating treatment plans with the other medical specialists in the hospital. Though a considerable number of the patients I encountered were geriatric, many also had serious cardiovascular diseases, while some had complicated chronic disorders that needed close attention.
In addition, I maintain employment and admitting privileges at several other New York hospitals including Montefiore Nyack Hospital in Nyack and Long Island Community Hospital in Patchogue. My experience in treating the sickest and most challenging cases has given me great perspective in guiding you toward maintaining your health and wellness for many years to come. I am also an avid swimmer and skier, enjoy exploring diverse worldwide cuisine and speak fluent Russian as well as Spanish. I hope to share these fitness hobbies and passions with you on your path to a healthier lifestyle!
