Professional Summary:

As an assistant clinical professor board-certified in emergency medicine, I split my time clinically between Buffalo General Medical Center and the VA of Western New York. I enjoy the wide breadth of clinical presentations and acuity as well caring for a diverse patient population. As an emergency medicine (EM) physician, I have the privilege of caring for any patient that comes to our department, regardless of any internal or external factors that have led them to seek care. I have the honor of meeting them, establishing a rapport, and delivering the highest quality care I possibly can.

When I am not working clinically, I am thoroughly enjoying my role as the medical student director in our department. I oversee all of our EM electives at the medical school. Undergraduate medical education has become my passion and I am committed to providing each student with an excellent experience in emergency medicine, cultivating and supporting their experience in our specialty. Advising students who are thinking about pursuing a career in EM is one of the most fulfilling parts of my job. Emergency medicine aside, I am always willing to support any student on their journey to find their passion in medicine. I am a preceptor in Clinical Practice of Medicine for first and second year students as well.

Outside of our department, I serve as the chair of the Phase 2 Committee at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Science where we focus on the clinical curriculum for our 3rd and 4th year students. As the school embarks on a total redesign of our medical curriculum, I have had the honor of being a part of the core curriculum design team as we strive to give our students the best, most integrated, comprehensive, and modern curriculum possible!

While I am not a native Buffalonian, I have been grateful to become a part of this community and to raise my young family in a city that is so proud and passionate as it strives to grow and affect positive change.
