Building a Partnership for a Healthier You

I believe in a personalized approach to healthcare, where each patient receives the time, attention and respect that I believe they deserve. As your MDVIP-affiliated physician, I am committed to becoming your partner in wellness, guiding you toward a healthier and happier future.

Beyond Traditional Medicine

My focus extends beyond simply treating illnesses. I emphasize proactive measures like preventive care, healthier lifestyle choices and a more collaborative approach to decision-making. Together, we can create a customized plan that can help address your unique health needs and goals, whether it's reviewing chronic conditions, improving diet and exercise habits or simply working to help you feel your best.

Convenience and Comfort

I believe you deserve a healthcare experience that prioritizes your time and comfort. I offer same- or next-day appointments that minimize wait times and maximize our time together. This personalized attention allows for more in-depth discussions, more time during examinations and a deeper understanding of your individual health journey.

Your Neighborhood Doctor

I proudly serve the communities of Hollywood, Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. I am fluent in Russian and proficient in Spanish to help ensure clearer communication and cultural sensitivity. I am also affiliated with Mount Sinai Medical Center and Memorial Regional Hospital, Hollywood, so I can advocate for your care should hospitalization become necessary.

Areas of Expertise

While I provide primary care services, I have particular interests in obesity medicine, nutrition, preventive medicine and rejuvenation, allowing me to offer my knowledge and guidance in these areas.

Investing in Your Well-being

Choosing an MDVIP-affiliated physician, to me, means investing in your long-term well-being.. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. I believe being part of my practice is  an investment in yourself, your health, and a future filled with increased vitality and joy.

Ready to Begin Your Journey?

I invite you to schedule a get-acquainted meeting and discover the difference personalized, proactive healthcare can make. Together, we can build a path toward a healthier, happier you.

Frequently Asked Questions

MDVIP-affiliated physicians use the Wellness Program Plus to help prevent little things from becoming big things – working to help patients enjoy life and be healthier. Those who value their health will appreciate having a closer doctor-patient relationship. Because MDVIP-affiliated physicians have smaller practices, they have more time for you, so you can receive the individualized care and service you deserve. Physicians offering the Plus program have a different set of testing to choose from than physicians in the traditional program; this testing looks at additional health risks. Plus doctors also use an advanced cognitive testing system to evaluate brain health and offer a medication review program.

MDVIP makes wellness and prevention easier by providing your physician with innovative tools and technology. MDVIP supports your physician’s practice and seeks to eliminate barriers to a positive healthcare experience. Your doctor will determine whether and how to incorporate these tools at his/her discretion.

Most MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices accept insurance (your physician can tell you whether they accept your specific insurance plan). Your annual fee pays for preventive care medical services that insurance usually doesn’t cover (e.g., advanced diagnostic testing and screenings). Your MDVIP-affiliated physician will continue to bill your insurance and charge copays, co-insurances and deductibles as he or she currently does for other medical services like sick visits.
