I graduated from medical school in Moscow and came to the US in 1979.

I completed pediatric residency at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC and a fellowship in pediatric infectious diseases at Boston City Hospital and Boston University. I am board certified in both specialties. I have been on medical faculty at Brown Medical School since 1988 and currently I am a clinical associate professor of pediatrics there.

I started International Adoption Clinic at Hasbro Children's Hospital in Providence, RI in 1999 and I have been its director from its inception. In addition, I practice general pediatrics in Providence and care for children from 56 different countries.
I provide both pre-adoption and post-adoption services including consultations with the families while they are in the country of adoption. I see adopted children in my clinic, review their records and obtain appropriate blood and other tests. I do not provide continuous care for those kids at Hasbro Children's Hospital.
