Clinical Assistant Professor; Adult Neurology Residency Program Director
I am a neurologist specializing in treating patients who experience headaches, migraines, cluster headaches and post-traumatic headaches. I also care for patients who experience headache during pregnancy and lactation. I use a mixture of lifestyle modification and medications to address my patients’ conditions. I am also experienced in botulinum toxin injections and nerve block injections.
After completing my residency, I obtained further specialty training in headache medicine at Harvard Medical School/Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Practicing in Boston’s original City Hospital has equipped me with a wealth of experience and expertise in caring for individuals from diverse cultures and economic backgrounds. I currently see patients at both Buffalo General Medical Center (BGMC) outpatient neurology clinics as well as the UBMD Neurology Main Street clinic in Williamsville, where I continue to care for patients who come from diverse backgrounds. I feel privileged to practice with the UBMD practice plan; the opportunity affords me the clinical time to understand my patients’ individual needs and provide them with the best treatment solutions. I also care for adult inpatients with a wide variety of neurological diseases at BGMC and work as part of a team to provide consultation and inpatient management.
My research interests largely mirror my clinical interests, but also include evaluating research integrity in the medical literature.
I am the Adult Neurology Residency Program Director. It‘s the honor of my career to work with such dedicated and talented young physicians-- and I get to watch them grow. I love working with our medical students in the classroom, as well as inpatient and outpatient clinical settings. Mentoring the next generation of physicians, neurologists, and headache specialists is one of my major career aims.
My family and I feel fortunate to once again call Western New York home. My goal is to decrease the suffering of individuals in my community who suffer from disabling headaches.
