Amir Miodovnik, MD, MPH

Haiti 2011

He served in the United States Navy as a Lieutenant Commander in Okinawa, Japan, for several years and worked as an attending pediatrician at Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. He volunteered with Doctors Without Borders for two missions 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 post-doctoral research fellowship in Pediatric Environmental Health at 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 (see below) on the associations between toxic chemical exposures and neurodevelopmental outcomes in children.

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

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 Northwestern University in Chicago for residency in general pediatrics.


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