Professional Summary:

As a pediatrician specializing in treating hospitalized patients, I care for children, including neonates with various serious medical conditions requiring inpatient care. I work closely with community pediatricians to provide care for these newborns and for other children who need hospitalization.

I am additionally board certified in pediatric endocrinology and diabetes. As a pediatric endocrinologist, I manage children and adolescents, both as inpatients and outpatients, with various endocrinological and metabolic disorders. I am particularly involved in the care of youths with juvenile diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, calcium and bone disorders, abnormalities of growth and puberty, and disorders of sex development.

I serve as the program coordinator at the Diabetes Center of the Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo (WCHOB) for the American Diabetes Association’s Educational Recognition Program. I supervise the diabetes self-care management education provided by the center’s certified diabetes educators and nutritionists to young people diagnosed with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Additionally, I coordinate quality improvement projects that are focused on improving diabetes care delivery.

As an assistant professor of pediatrics at UB and a member of the Teaching Interest Group at WCHOB, I educate and train medical students, residents and fellows and devise methodologies to improve learning. I supplement my core lectures with targeted bedside teaching.

I conduct clinical research and publish on various aspects of general pediatrics and pediatric endocrinology. My current focus is on the prevention of abnormal weight gain in children and adolescents with new onset type 1 diabetes. I also mentor UB medical students in research on topics such as evaluating the current level of diabetes care provided at our diabetes center and our efforts to improve diabetes self-care.
