Dr. Alexandre Karat (Karatchounov) is widely known among the Russian-speaking community in New York and far beyond. Interviews with the famous doctor on various relevant topics are often published in local press, radio and TV. He is a permanent member of social projects aimed at supporting sports, helping talented youth, and assisting veterans of World War II.

Many legends have been told about Dr. Karat's life. By word of mouth, people pass around incredible stories about him. His bright personality and his extraordinary charisma attracts people's attention, charging them with positive energy. The main distinguishing features of Dr. Karat's nature are unlimited optimism and cheerfulness, love for people, and a desire to always come to the rescue.

His rules of life are: Never give up, do not blame anyone, never complain, and find a way out of seemingly hopeless situations. Even so, the path to his success was, for him, not easy. This book consisted of his outspoken stories. It's an incredible story, full of amazing events and drama.

Dr. Karat faced many ups and downs. He overcame anxiety and doubt, again and again finding the strength to go forward. Throughout his life there was endless struggle, and only decisive actions allowed him to achieve his goal. Every time those around him thought he had fallen into the abyss, never to rise again, he rose again, going even higher.

Beginning as a student at the Leningrad Military Medical Academy, he went on to build a brilliant scientific and medical career. He was awarded numerous government awards and prestigious European awards.

He almost died of asphyxiation onboard a nuclear submarine due to the breakdown of the reactor and operated on wounded soldiers under sniper fire during the war in Afghanistan. He was betrayed by his own country when he openly presented his opinion against the political system. He went through persecution, harassment, and military court prosecution, ultimately protecting his honor and dignity.

In 1992, Alexandre Karatchounov was forced to leave his country and immigrated to the United States. He went through a very difficult time, going from being an illegal immigrant to a US citizen. Having passed all the necessary exams and confirming the title of Doctor in America, he brilliantly graduated from the residency program of the most prestigious medical center in the world, New York University Medical School, becoming a successful businessman, founder and president of Karat Medical.

Dr.Karat is an author of more than 70 scientific papers.
