Philosophy of Care
“I have completed two formal medical educations, firstly in Russia based on Eastern philosophy and secondly in the United States based on Western philosophy, which have provided me two different perspectives towards medical care.
In my practice, the patient always comes first. My educational background contributes to my current philosophy of multidisciplinary care and the need for a selected team of specialists, including the patient and her family, in order to achieve the best results.
I am honest and straightforward with my patients because this is what I would want for myself. My passion for the treatment of surgical conditions drives my dedication to identify the cause of pain and offer relief using minimally invasive surgical techniques that offer the patient less recovery time and fewer complications.”
