I was born in the country of Moldova. I graduated from the only medical school in my country in 1998 and the completed residency in Internal Medicine in 2001. Later in 2005 I graduated from a family medicine residency in Kalamazoo, MI. Since early 2006 I've been employed by Community Health Association of Spokane in Spokane, WA. I love working with different ethnic groups, such as Eastern Europeans and other minority groups. I am fully fluent in Russian, Ukrainian, and Romanian. I have a wife and 3 beautiful kids - Ann,9 Mark,7 and Anthony, 10 months. I love international traveling, outdoors. We are active in our local church and international mission work. My professional interests are diabetes, healthy living and chronic disease management.
