General Pediatrics

We provide pediatric services primarily to the inner-city population of Buffalo.

Our outpatient health centers provide care primarily to the inner-city population of Buffalo. Our inpatient service, at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, provides care to a patient base of urban, suburban and rural children throughout the region. Combined, the diverse medical needs of our patients provide rich clinical and research opportunities.

Education and Training

The majority of the outpatient medical education for pediatric residents is provided by our division. In addition, most of the third-year pediatric clerkship experiences are provided by members of our division. Our faculty consistently receives numerous teaching awards from the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.


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

Patient Care

Our Division of General Pediatrics operates two primary care pediatric health centers serving inner-city children. This patient population includes Caucasian, African-American, Hispanic and immigrant populations. Together, the sites have more than 35,000 visits per year and are facing increasing demand. Both sites use an electronic health record integrated with the Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.

Our division also includes the Pediatric Hospitalist Service at Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, the only freestanding children's hospital in the region. 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. This service provides more than 7,000 combined inpatient admission days per year. The service also covers the newborn nursery, with approximately 1,500 newborns per year.
