I am certified by the American Board of Family Practice after completing a residency-training program at University of California, San Francisco and have been practicing medicine in California for more than eight years.
However, my medical experience dates back more then 30 years to my medical school training in Moscow. I have practiced internal medicine and cardiology before arriving to San Francisco in 1993. I also spent years conducting clinical research, developed a number of innovative methods of treatment, published some articles and authored two inventions. I was granted a Ph.D. in cardiology and clinical pharmacology in 1990.
I am an Assistant Clinical Professor at UCSF where I teach Medicine to medical students. I also attend annual continuing medical education programs in my specialty.
I have lived in San Francisco for fifteen years with my wife and two children, and I enjoy our beautiful city and proud being a part of this community.
