Professional Summary:

My clinical practice is split between shifts in the Emergency Department and operational medicine via field response. In my capacity as Medical Director for Erie County Homeland Security & Emergency Services, I provide medical support to local EMS, fire, and law enforcement agencies. Additionally, I regularly take shifts as a Flight Physician with Mercy Flight of Western New York.

My research has centered around cardiac arrest outcomes and prehospital resuscitation. My EMS Division colleagues and I are currently working to enhance cardiac arrest survival in the City of Buffalo and its surrounding communities.
