Diagnostic Radiology

 
Professional Summary:

As chair of the Department of Radiology, I work to ensure that we provide excellent education to medical students, training them in both basic and advanced imaging modalities. I pursue departmental connections with community resources to further our students’ education and coordinate our efforts to help students who have career interests in radiology with residency applications, including making their final selections and being accepted into programs. I have over 25 years’ experience serving in the military, active duty and as a reservist, and invite students to talk with me if they have an interest in a medical career in the military.

My area of expertise is maxillofacial/head and neck imaging. I have previously served as the director of radiology at the Erie County Medical Center and since August 2000 have been director of radiology at Buffalo’s VA Medical Center. I am a fellow of the American College of Radiology and the American Society of Emergency Radiology and am certified by both the American Board of Radiology and the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology. I have held several positions for the latter organization, including President. I also regularly review articles for radiology journals including RadioGraphics, Military Medicine, and Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology, Oral Radiology and Endodontology.
