Dr. Kouznetsov's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kouznetsov "Originally from Russia, Dr. Andrei Kouznetsov enjoys practicing in the high-paced environment of a large hospital. "I really enjoy working as a hospitalist," he explains. "It's a very dynamic way to practice. Here, the level of patients needing acute care is higher. So as doctors, we are able to make a difference in a short amount of time." Some of the typical conditions Dr. Kouznetsov treats patients for at Saint Vincent Hospital include cardiovascular disease, congestive heart failure, strokes, heart attacks, uncontrolled blood pressure, COPD, pulmonary infections, anemia, as well as other problems. "Most of our patients stay three or four days in the hospital and then go home after they improve," he explains. Dr. Kouznetsov believes in being frank with his patients and keeping them as informed as possible about their health. "I find that the more patients know about their condition the better they are able to take care of themselves after they leave the hospital. I think educating them also helps them feel better about their condition and puts them more at ease." According to Dr. Kouznetsov, the proactive approach Reliant takes in coordinating care is very beneficial to patients. "I like the ease of communication between the hospitalists and primary care providers, which does not exist everywhere. That's made possible by the fact that we're all the same organization. And everybody is here to achieve one goal – the health of the patient." When he is not busy at the hospital helping patients, Dr. Kouznetsov tries to spend as much time as possible with his wife and two children. Dr. Kouznetsov also likes to spend time cooking, enjoying the theatre, playing guitar, ballroom dancing, painting, and computer graphics."
