Dr. Mordechai Pavlovsky
Dr. Mordechai Pavlovsky is a board certified ER physician with a broad spectrum of experience – he’s done everything from stabilizing gunshot wounds in an ER in downtown Philadelphia, to providing compassionate and timely care to residents of San Francisco with less pressing ailments. After completing an internship in general surgery at UCSF, Dr. Pavlovsky decided to departed for cooler climbs and rounded out his Emergency Medicine training at the Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. His interests extend beyond just clinical medicine to the healthcare system more broadly, and he obtained his Master’s in Public Health at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. There his focus was on healthcare delivery in developing nations and on optimizing care delivery (which is as applicable in San Francisco, where resources are ample, as it is in the developing world). When not delivering care, Dr. Pavlovsky likes to spend his time travelling (including a recent trip to Japan) or exploring the neighborhoods of SF.
