In 1984, I received my medical degree from the St. Petersburg Pediatric Medical Academy in St. Petersburg, Russia. After completing the Internship in Pediatrics and Pediatric Neurology at the St. Petersburg Pediatric Medical Academy I moved to the United States where completed a Sub-Internship in Pediatrics at the Boston Medical Center in Boston, a Pediatric Residency at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester, and a Residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the New England Medical Center in Boston.

I am a practicing Pediatrician at the Universal Pediatrics, a private pediatric practice affiliated with the Newton-Wellesley Hospital. Over the past several years I have assisted numerous families with international adoption, particularly those adopting children from Russia. My cross-cultural training makes me uniquely qualified to interpret complex, and often controversial, Russian medical histories and diagnoses.

The services provided by Dr. Stavitsky and the staff of the Universal Pediatrics include the review of your prospective child's medical chart including original Russian records, photographs, and videotapes, advice on your travel to Russia, and pre-adoption consultation with Dr. Stavitsky from your first referral until your child arrives home to the United States. Additionally, I will provide you with a medical report of my findings and recommendations for the appropriate medical care of your child. I am available to consult with you in person, via telephone, and over email.
