Professional Summary:

I see patients at the UBMD Pediatrics outpatient center at Conventus and at the John R. Oishei Children's Hospital. I also have a monthly outreach clinic in Olean, NY. My clinical expertise includes diabetes, adrenal disorder, delayed and early puberty, problems with growth, thyroid disease and obesity.

I spend a significant amount of time conducting clinical research. My research projects are related to Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, obesity and early puberty. I am the local principal investigator for the Type 1 Diabetes Exchange Clinic Registry, a research network of over 26,000 patients with Type 1 diabetes from across the country. The purpose of this clinic registry is to improve the care of persons with Type 1 diabetes by sharing best practices and answering important clinical questions through research. My role is to supervise a team of research assistants and make sure that we protect patient privacy, maintain patient volunteer safety and follow protocols for the study so that the results are valid. Based on my research and clinical expertise, I have written many chapters about adrenal disease, early puberty and general endocrinology that have been published in medical textbooks.

As the fellowship program director for the Division of Endocrinology in the Department of Pediatrics, I supervise and monitor the training of the pediatric endocrinology fellows. I teach pediatric endocrinology to medical students and residents, primarily as a preceptor in clinic, though I also lecture in the classroom setting.

I introduce the field to undergraduate students by allowing them to shadow me in clinic. In addition, I participate in medical career panels for undergraduates.
