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.

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.

A member asked:
A 29-year-old female asked:
Weight loss: Hello & sorry to hear about your problem. It's not clear what the cause of your weight loss is. If it is pregnancy associated nausea, then it needs to be treated as such. A ginger supplement, B6, Dramamine/Doxylamine can be helpful to alleviate that. However, if it is another cause, then it needs to be found & treated as such as.
A 26-year-old male asked:
Skin infection: Hello, I have never heard of anyone having been prescribed Clindamycin for that long of a shot. I am not aware of a skin infection that would be treatable with Clindamycin for that long. Clindamycin is frequently used short term for suppression of acute break outs but not chronically like this. It's also very well known to give rise to intestinal infection called C.Difficile.
