Professional Summary:

I am a neuro-ophthalmologist with a primary clinical interest in optic neuropathy and vasculitis. I see a full range of neuro-ophthalmologic conditions, but I specialize in adult autoimmune optic neuropathy syndromes, diplopia, headache and multiple sclerosis (MS). I am also a board-certified ophthalmologist and conduct vision tests such as visual field testing, ocular coherence tomography (this assesses the health of the retina and optic nerve), sensorimotor examination and prism measurements. I see patients five days a week at UBMD Neurology at Buffalo General Medical Center.

My main research interests include preventative treatment trials for autoimmune optic neuropathies and neuroprotection. I present annually at national and international conferences regarding MS and the use of ocular coherence tomography and imaging in my field. I am also involved in the “Hopeful Ways Nicaragua Eye Care Mission Project,” an annual medical mission to Nicaragua to prevent blindness. I work together with a group of medical professionals, local interpreters and Peace Corps volunteers to provide free vision care to over 2,600 patients a year.

I am actively involved in training medical students, residents and fellows. I lecture weekly to students in small group sessions as well as larger lecture settings at UB.
