Clinical Instructor of Emergency Medicine
Education; Emergency Medicine; Quality Improvement
I work as and attending physician in the Emergency Departments at both Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute and the Buffalo VA Medical Center. Prior to medical school, I had exposure to Emergency Medicine while working and volunteering in the New York Capital Region as an EMT. This initial exposure led me to his specialty training in Emergency Medicine.
I have a special interest in the management of neurologic emergencies. I serve on the Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute Stroke Quality Committee with the goal of improving the care provided to patients who arrive with acute cerebrovascular disorders.
I am also very passionate about medical education. I hope to improve the way feedback is given to residents and medical students. I enjoy designing interactive and engaging lectures for our residents' didactic curriculum. This includes frequent lectures on acute neurologic emergencies as well as the board review lecture series for the UB Emergency Medicine Residency.
