Angel Mier-Hicks MD

Department of Medicine

Clinical Assistant Professor, Hospital Medicine, UBMD Physicians' Group

Specialty/Research Focus

Internal Medicine

Professional Summary:

I am board-certified in internal medicine, and my primary focus is the high quality and compassionate medical care of hospitalized patients at Buffalo General Medical Center (BGMC). Because my entire day is devoted to hospitalized patients, I am readily available to my patients and their families. The time I spend with my patients gives me a great deal of experience in the unique aspects of my patients’ needs during their hospital stays, which helps me deliver the best possible medical care. In addition, by practicing evidence-based medicine, I bring prompt and complete attention to all my patient care, including diagnosis, treatment and management. I also collaborate, coordinate and communicate with all physicians and health care professionals caring for hospitalized patients, all of which fosters excellent patient care.

I am responsible as well for ensuring the safe transition of patient care both within the hospital and from the hospital to the community. My oversight of safe patient transition may include patient care in post-acute care locations that facilitate continued patient recovery such as inpatient rehabilitation facilities and skilled nursing facilities.

My current research interest is in seeking to understand the significance of visceral thrombosis in gastrointestinal malignancies, with special interest in pancreas adenocarcinoma.​
