Dr. Dmitriy Model

Dr. Dmitriy Model, co-owner and vice president of Avecina Medical has helped make the urgent care facility the success that it is today. He has successfully been integrated in the lives of tens of thousands of patients and continues to be one of the few physicians who is focused on the well-being and improvement of his patients. His dedication towards his patients continues to allow him to be a favorite among his counterparts.

At the tender age of 5, his uncanny ability to give comfort was seen in his dedication for his ailing grandmother. His attentiveness towards her, improved his patience and gave him the determination to pursue the necessary steps to become one of the best in his field.

His medical education and training began early and he dedicated himself at the age of 15 to understanding what would be required to pursue his dream of becoming a medical doctor. At 18 years of age, he worked as a medical assistant at different hospitals throughout Moscow and at 19 years, his competency in handling emergencies made him a popular physician’s assistant on the busy streets of Moscow with the city’s finest fire rescue team. Dmitriy received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Florida and completed his medical degree with Ross University. It was there that he learned grace under pressure and understood that having solid credentials was not only important but having an empathetic attitude and an open and responsive manner was the key to maintaining patient /doctor loyalty.

Dmitriy completed his clinical rotations in New York City and his internal residency at The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. His professional journey took him from treating patients at The University Hospital of Newark, East Orange Veteran Hospital and The Hackensack Medical Center, to eventually an assistant professorship at the University of Florida in Jacksonville Florida.

His vigorous training prepared him for a business partnership with a longtime friend, Dr. Saman Soleymani, and the two created Avecina Medical, a state-of-the-art urgent care facility.

Dmitriy (or Model as he is known throughout his community) is a family man, with his beautiful wife Elena and their two children Benjamin and Dasha. On days when he feels free spirited, his love for ballroom dancing is seen on the floors of Arthur Murray Studio.
