Ambition, perseverance and authenticity are the main three pillars of my professional life. Over the years of practice, I learned that patient’s patient-centred care is paramount. Therefore, I prefer tailoring my care around the patient’s needs based on the general practice standards and guidelines. I founded Family Health Clinic Malvern to complete this main purpose, particularly by working closely with the patients, building a long-term rapport and continuation of care.
Educational background and experience:
I completed my medical studies at Voronezh State Medical Academy(Russia) and obtained my Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery ( Hons) in 2003. I worked overseas in general and acute medicine from 2004 to 2012, which enriched my experience and scope of practice.
In 2013, I made Melbourne my new home. In 2017, I obtained a fellowship from the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. I also completed various studies worth mentioning:
- a Diploma in Child Health, from Sydney University and,
- a Master’s Degree in Health Administration, from Monash University.
Scope of Practice:
I enjoy all aspects of General Practice with a special interest in:
In addition, I do minor procedures such as mole excision, ingrowing nails treatment, lumps excision, implanon removal, wound repair and Iron infusion. Preventive medicine is an important aspect of my practice, which encompasses, immunisation, travel advice and vaccination, and skin cancer check.
As a GP affiliate with the Department of General Practice, at Monash University, I offer teaching placement for medical students at our practice. So, you may encounter any of our students during your visit.
A brief about myself, I am 45 years, a father of three children. I like CrossFit, Olympic weightlifting and swimming. Jazz music is my favourite genre.
