NeurAbilities Healthcare is proud to introduce Dr. Amir Miodovnik, MD, a developmental pediatrician providing comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for children and adolescents with autism, ADHD, learning differences, behavioral concerns, and other developmental delays. Dr. Miodovnik also works closely with families to identify strategies that promote academic, social, and behavioral well-being of his patients.

Dr. Miodovnik attended the University of Virginia and graduated early through the Echols Scholar honors program. After completing medical school at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and Cleveland Clinic, he completed his pediatric residency at Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.

When asked about his path to developmental pediatrics, Dr. Miodovnik remembers, “my entry into developmental pediatrics wasn’t a straight line. I did a lot of things along the way. First, I worked abroad for several years and learned about military medicine and global medicine.” Dr. Miodovnik served in the US Navy as a Lieutenant Commander in Okinawa, Japan. Subsequently, he was an attending physician at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Additionally, he volunteered as a field doctor for Médecins Sans Frontières  (Doctors Without Borders) in Africa, for Project Medishare in Haiti, and received a Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene from the Gorgas Institute in Lima, Peru.​

Ultimately, Dr. Miodovnik’s interest in child development evolved from a research fellowship in Pediatric Environmental Health at Mount Sinai Medical Center. He earned a Master of Public Health degree investigating the potential toxicity of endocrine disrupting chemicals on the developing brain (see Publications).

“I realized I was interested specifically in how industrial chemicals altered brain development in subtle ways. This led to Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics training, 8 years after I had completed residency!”

After completing a clinical fellowship in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics and a Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (LEND) fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, he served as Chief of Developmental Medicine at Maimonides Children’s Hospital, Brooklyn’s only children’s hospital.

When asked what question he gets most about specializing in developmental pediatrics, he explains, “I’ve never heard of that. What do you do exactly? I heard this from 90% of people outside of pediatrics. This question provides me with the opportunity to educate others about the importance of looking at ‘the whole’ patient to determine more individualized approaches to care.”

Dr. Amir Miodovnik is currently accepting new patients!
