General Pediatrics

We deliver a broad range of education, research and clinical care. We provide primary care pediatrics and pediatric hospitalist service at both Oishei Children’s Hospital and Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital.

Our outpatient and hospitalist services offers rich clinical and research opportunities and serve the diverse medical needs of our patients.

Education and Training

We provide the majority of the outpatient medical education for pediatric residents as well as most of the third-year pediatric clerkship experiences. Our faculty consistently receive teaching awards from the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.


Our research interests include obesity, nutritional disorders, lead poisoning prevention and medical informatics.

Clinical Care

Our division is part of UBMD Pediatrics, a member of UBMD Physicians’ Group, the medical practice plan for the University at Buffalo.

Our division operates two pediatric health centers, Niagara Street Pediatrics and Towne Gardens Pediatrics, where we deliver community-based primary care and population health care to the inner-city. Our patient population includes Caucasian, African-American, Hispanic and immigrant populations. Together, these active sites see more than 24,000 patient visits per year and offer a rich training environment for our students and residents. Both sites use an electronic health record system that is integrated with Oishei Children’s Hospital. We also staff several school-based health clinics as well as the asthma and special needs clinics located at Niagara Street Pediatrics.

Our pediatric hospitalist service (PHS) provides care in the newborn nursery and hospital medicine at both Oishei Children’s Hospital and Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital along with long-term care at HighPointe. This service covers medical inpatients from our health centers, plus those of many local private practices. In addition, the hospitalist service covers unreferred medical admissions and provides more than 7,000 combined inpatient admission days per year.
