Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Clinical Associate Professor

Specialty/Research Focus

Obstetrics and Gynecology

Professional Summary:

I moved to western New York in 1998 and realized what a great place it is to raise a family. I initially joined the faculty at The University at Buffalo and was Medical Student Director and Associate Residency Director. In order to serve patients better, I went into solo private practice and ran two offices in the area for over 10 years. An opportunity arose for me to come back to the department and use what I have learned to help train residents. I see patients in both of my offices.

I am the Residency Program Director and the Division Chief for General Obstetrics and Gynecology in the department. I use my experience to help train residents in the area of general obstetrics and gynecology, professionalism and interpersonal communication skills. My area of interest is in health care outcomes and patient care quality. I will be/am attending Harvard University, School of Public Health to earn a Master of Science degree in Health Care Management. I hope to use my knowledge and experience to provide quality health care for everyone in the region.
