To better understand the interaction between the environment and child development in a more clinical context, he completed a Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School. He now hopes to combine his clinical and research experiences to serve  a rapidly growing and diverse community of children with developmental concerns in New York City.

Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.

He then served in the United States Navy as a Lieutenant Commander in Okinawa, Japan for several years.  Upon his return, he spent time as an urgent care physician at Children's Hospital Los Angeles and volunteered with the international NGO, Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), in Africa. He would eventually go on to receive a Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene from the prestigious Gorgas Institute in Lima, Peru.​


His interest in child development evolved from a research fellowship in Pediatric Environmental Health through the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where he had the privilege of working under the mentorship of Dr. Philip Landrigan. His investigation into the potential neurotoxicity of certain widespread endocrine disruptors led to a Master of Public Health degree and several peer-reviewed journal publications on the associations between toxic chemical exposures and neurodevelopmental outcomes in children.

​​Dr. Amir Miodovnik is very excited to be returning to New York City, where he previously worked in pediatrics and preventive medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital. Originally from Israel, Dr. Miodovnik grew up in the Midwest and studied at the University of Virginia. He completed his medical school training at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and The Cleveland Clinic Foundation before heading to the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago (formerly Children’s Memorial Hospital) for residency in general pediatrics.
