Our Pain Doctor
Dr. V, as some patients call him, was trained at the Medical Military Academy and served as a medical officer on nuclear missile submarines.
He completed a 4-year Anesthesiology Residency at Brookdale University Hospital in Brooklyn, NY and worked as an Anesthesiologist and a Pain Management Physician in New York City, Albany and the Rochester area. He has more than 20 years of experience in the fields of Pain Management and Anesthesiology.
Dr. V himself suffered from a severe back injury caused by a deadly helicopter crash when he was stationed with a humanitarian mission hospital helping people affected by an armed conflict. After the injury, he underwent a complicated back surgery. Having experienced severe back pain himself, Doctor V is better able to relate to his patients and care for them.
