Erika Gleva PA-C

Erika Gleva is a board certified Physician Assistant, a graduate from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.  She chose to work with Dr. Shikhman for his focus on the whole person and his practice which combines evidence-based, integrative approaches of Western and Eastern medicine.


She has been working in Rheumatology under Dr. Shikhman for over two years.


"I enjoy spending time to listen to each patient.  I will do my best to understand and find the root cause of each patient’s signs and symptoms and put together an individualized treatment plan. I believe it is extremely important for a patient to be an active participant in their care.  I have scheduling flexibility and time to answer and explain any questions regarding your diagnosis, supplements/medications and treatment plan.  I work to provide the same continuity of care which you would expect to obtain with Dr. Shikhman."


Prior to working with Dr. Shikhman, Erika worked in clinical research at Mount Auburn Hospital in Infectious Diseases in Cambridge, MA under Dr. Lin Chen.  She coordinated multiple CDC funded studies focused on Travel Medicine.
