Professional Summary:

I am a neurologist who specializes in the care of patients with stroke and other neurovascular disorders. I am board-certified in internal medicine, neurology and vascular neurology. I care for inpatients at Buffalo General Medical Center, the busiest stroke service in New York State, and for outpatients after their discharge from the hospital. I serve as the neurology medical director at the Gates Vascular Institute, a state-of-the-art facility adjoining Buffalo General Medical Center that specializes in the care of vascular disorders. As a member of several committees, I help develop admission and treatment guidelines for the medical center. Of note, we continue to improve our door-to-tissue plasminogen activator time for those patients who are eligible for this treatment for acute stroke. Our stroke center has been recognized as a Comprehensive Stroke Center by the Joint Commission and received a “Get With The Guidelines Gold Plus” award from the American Heart Association.

I am very involved in stroke research and serve as principal investigator on several cutting-edge National Institutes of Health (NIH) and industry-funded clinical trials. My research and publications in this domain include clinical investigation into the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cerebrovascular disease.

In addition to my clinical and research role, I am very involved with the education of medical students, residents and fellows on the neurovascular service. I serve as the program director for the Vascular Neurology Fellowship Program approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) which trains one to two fellows each year. I give several didactic lectures every year to various audiences at different levels of training.
