Philosophy of Care

My goal is to provide treatment and care for children with neurological conditions so they can achieve their maximum physical and intellectual potential.

My professional journey has always been inspired by the stories of my patients. Having followed many children with neurological problems throughout their development, I recognize that timely treatment and exposure to a stimulating environment can foster a remarkable neurological outcome. Children have a unique ability to face challenges, and I feel that it is my privilege to intervene early so children can reach their maximum physical and intellectual potential.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from the Moscow Medical Academy, Russia and completed Pediatric Residency in 1996. After immigrating to the United States, I worked in diverse clinical settings, which immensely expanded my perspective on medicine. I completed the Pediatric Residency Program at Saint Peter’s University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey and later received Child Neurology training at Boston Medical Center. An additional fellowship in Sleep Medicine has provided me with better understanding of neuronal circuitry that modulates sleep, circadian rhythms and behavior.

The strength of my clinical work has been guided by continuous learning and the search for better ways to deliver patient care. I have been involved in various quality improvement projects, including a recent QI project evaluating sleep disordered breathing in acute stroke patients. My special interests in Child Neurology include neurometabolic disorders, epilepsy and sleep pathology.
