About me

There's an amazing level of commitment that both Sanitas and I have in providing the best care. Allowed to have more time with my patients than is usual in many offices, I can treat them individually and thoroughly. I believe this approach truly impacts my patients’ health. A great day at work for me is when I know I’ve really helped my patients. One memorable experience was when a patient had a sore throat, but since he also mentioned a slight chest pain, I recommended he have an EKG. The EKG revealed a more serious problem and he went to the hospital. After his treatment, he was told that if he hadn’t gone when I recommended, he probably would’ve died. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing I helped save a patient’s life!

I was born in Ukraine and came to the U.S. as an adult. My background means that I am fluent in English, Ukrainian, Russian and Polish. My mother is a physician. Her genuine engagement with patients and love of her work inspired me to study medicine, too.

My son is my first priority. My passion when I get home from work is being his mom. We like to chat about his education and interests. Currently, he wants to study seals and dolphins and likes to learn about science. I also enjoy playing tennis, and in my spare time, I like doing aerobics.
