Dr. Sorina Carabeth earned her medical degree at the Institutul de Medicina in Timisoara, Romania, where she practiced general medicine and psychiatry. She immigrated to the United States where she became board certified as a psychiatrist. In 2004, she began training in anti-aging medicine. During this training, she was introduced to hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Over the years, she has continued her education in Hyperbaric Medicine. She saw what a valuable therapy this was and how much it benefited her patients.

Silvana Bilicska, B.S.
Founder and Administrator
I have been working in the medical industry since 1995. In 2010, I bought a mild hyperbaric oxygen chamber to help my husband fight lymphoma, who is now in partial remission. As I learned more about hyperbaric oxygen therapy, I realized how crucial oxygen is to our body’s healing process. My passion for helping people guided me into opening Obispo Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and making this healing modality available to all my clients. I look forward to helping you heal and feel renewed.
