Department of Medicine

Clinical Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics

Specialty/Research Focus

Children and Adults; Internal Medicine - Pediatrics

 
Professional Summary:

I provide adult and pediatric health care with a primary focus on caring for individuals with developmental disabilities.

My clinical expertise draws from over a decade of primary care practice at the Elmwood Health Center, a clinic located in an underserved area of Buffalo. The center specializes in caring for individuals with developmental disabilities and providing primary care to residents in the surrounding city neighborhoods and adjacent suburbs. I see children and adults from a wide variety of backgrounds, many with complex social as well as medical issues. I care for patients from an increasingly diverse population due to the growth of immigrants in the Buffalo area; this gives me the rich experience of treating and communicating with patients from different cultural backgrounds. I am committed to health care equity, and I strive to understand the needs of all my patients.

My research is dedicated to increasing advanced directives in the medical charts of developmentally disabled adults. I serve frequently as a consultant to hospital health care providers in assessing the decision-making ability of intellectually impaired adults.

I teach in a number of settings: I present endocrine topics to medical students during inpatient rotations at the Buffalo General Medical Center (BGMC) and the Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo (WCHOB), and I give endocrinology lectures to our Medicine-Pediatrics residents. I oversee inpatient and outpatient clinical training of medical students and residents in internal medicine and pediatrics at Elmwood Health and at the inpatient services at BGMC and WCHOB. I also teach the second-year Clinical Practice of Medicine course as a preceptor at the Elmwood Health Center.

Additionally, I have served as the quality improvement officer within our academic division, and I organized a Web-based residency curriculum for our training program. I periodically advise residents on quality improvement projects.
