“I came to Honesdale for many reasons, but the biggest one is that I wanted to be closer to my parents, who live in New York City,” said Dr. Pinsky. “I visit them often.”
Dr. Pinsky acquired his Doctor of Medicine degree from the Russian State Medical University in Moscow. His subsequent education included internships and residency training in pediatrics and pediatric anesthesiology in both Russia and later at the Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, New Jersey; Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City; and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire.
