Professional Summary:

As the new Associate Program Director and Site Director at Buffalo General Hospital, I look forward to strengthening our residency program and enhancing the patient experience.
My clinical practice focuses on the comprehensive care of seriously ill, adults admitted to an inpatient, acute care facility.
My academic interests include medical resident and student education, with a specific focus on consult medicine, the physical exam, as well as reducing preventable readmissions.
I have previously practiced medicine in Rochester, NY and New York City. I am very fortunate to now practice in my hometown. My husband and I have greatly enjoyed all the cultural activities which Buffalo has to offer and look forward to raising a family here.
