Professional Summary:

As a family medicine physician, I provide care to patients of all ages, perform procedures such as biopsies, joint injection and laceration suturing, and offer women’s health care. I provide care in settings where my patients need me--during outpatient visits, in urgent care situations and when they are hospitalized, e.g., I see seriously ill patients in the telemetry units and medical wards and newborns in the nursery. I also provide volunteer primary care at the Lighthouse Clinic. I feel fortunate to be able to take care of my patients in these different settings and throughout the stages of their lives. I enjoy getting to know my patients in order to care for them well.

I am interested in global health, and I travel to developing nations with medical students and other physicians to render needed medical care. During these trips, we might work in existing local clinics. At times we set up clinics with supplies and medications that we bring with us, in settings as basic as an abandoned building in Uganda or a rural field in Panama. Most recently, I traveled to an Amazon basin in Peru with other physicians and thirteen of our first-year medical students to deliver much-needed clinical care. My students received hands-on experience assisting with procedures and organizing patients’ medications. They directly cared for patients, under my guidance. In return, we gained valuable insight into Peruvian culture and the country’s health care system and learned about tropical diseases not common in the U.S. I am privileged to care for patients in developing nations. These experiences expand my sensitivity to diverse cultures, both in my practice here and abroad, and they provide me with a greater perspective on health care worldwide—all of which I am able to share with the medical students and residents I teach.

I also have an interest in women’s health. I serve as advisory faculty and course director for the Advanced Life Support Obstetrics course, which we hold annually in Buffalo to train residents and faculty members in emergency care during childbirth.

As the residency program director for the family medicine residency program, I work daily with residents. I give lectures, teach procedures and supervise residents and medical students in both the office and the hospital. Working in an academic environment creates an enthusiastic workplace and ensures that I stay current on clinical information. I also work with the Family Medicine Interest Group, mentoring medical students who are interested in becoming primary care physicians.
