“I met some very nice people while doing my residency in Schenectady,” she added, “and knew I wanted to stay close to this area to practice.
“When I came to SVMC, I was impressed by the friendliness and how genuine everyone was. I was excited to learn, that SVMC’s Deerfield Valley Campus is nationally recognized as a Level 3 Medical Home, the highest level there is,” she continued. “That requires meeting high standards, which appealed to me.”
                Besides English, Dr. Tobits also is fluent in Slovak and Czech and understands Polish and Russian. She has a special interest in women’s health, preventive medicine, and in working with children.
