Professional Summary:

I have continuously practiced as a family physician since I graduated from residency in 1977 and currently focus on care for the elderly. Since joining the faculty of the Department of Family Medicine at the University at Buffalo in 1980, I have instructed and supervised medical students and residents in the hospital and office. I have served in many administrative roles- medical director of the family medicine center clinical office, residency program director, vice chair of the department, and chief of service for family medicine at Kaleida Health and Millard Fillmore Hospital prior to the merger which created the Kaleida system. In 2002 I was appointed to the position of Chief Medical Officer for Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital. In 2005 I served as Interim Chief Medical Officer for the Kaleida Health system, then transitioned to the position of Chief Medical Officer for the Buffalo General Hospital until 2011. In 2012 I began a mentoring program for junior clinical faculty. In April 2013 I accepted an appointment as interim chair of the Department of Family Medicine. In September 2014 I was appointed as permanent chair and served until September of 2021. I currently serve on the Admissions Committee for the Jacobs School, and lecture and supervise small group seminar groups for the Clinical Practice of Medicine course.
