Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
Maternal - Fetal Medicine; Obstetrics and Gynecology
Born, raised and educated in Buffalo, I am proud of that heritage. Having had many opportunities to go elsewhere, I am extremely happy that I have resisted them. Now going on 40 years as a faculty member in our department, I look back proudly as having been one of our first fellows in Maternal Fetal Medicine and had much to do with that division’s development and growth.
I have pursued rather eclectic interests related to faculty practice plan matters, Ob-Gyn leadership issues and professional liabilities. As an outgrowth of my many years as the President of the University at Buffalo School of Medicine Faculty Practice Plan, I used that position as an opportunity to work with the other SUNY Practice Plans to form our own medical professional liability insurance carrier which is licensed and domiciled in New York State. This company of which I have been an integral part of for over 25 years, has been an enormous help to our faculty in providing the best and most reasonably priced insurance available. I am extremely devoted to helping with practice plan issues and remain active on many committees related to our faculty practice.
Having remained in Buffalo for my entire career has allowed me to achieve many accomplishments such as becoming Chair of District II of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Chair of the Board for Professional Medical Conduct and Chair of the Board of Academic Health Professionals Insurance Association. All of these accomplishments have been aided and abetted by my Department and the Medical School for which I am deeply appreciative.
