Professional Summary:

I provide infectious diseases consultations for hospitalized patients at the Erie County Medical Center (ECMC). In addition to my inpatient duties, I care for HIV infected patients at the Evergreen Health. HIV infection has become a chronic illness with antiretroviral therapy, and patients with HIV need primary care as well as HIV care. The Evergreen Health offers comprehensive care to these patients and gives me the opportunity to practice primary care for HIV infected patients in addition to my infectious disease practice.

I also participate in antiretroviral therapy clinical trials. These studies are crucial in evaluating the effectiveness and safety of new medications and new combination regimens. Patients are screened for eligibility for ongoing trials during their visit, and eligible candidates are enrolled.

I enjoy teaching medical students, residents, and fellows, supervising them on crucial skills in infectious diseases: recognizing important physical findings, developing differential diagnosis and selecting appropriate antibiotic treatment. I feel fortunate to be part of their medical training.
