Clinical Assistant Professor
Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine
As a faculty member in the division of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine, I split my time among the medical intensive care unit (MICU), the outpatient pulmonary clinic and the inpatient pulmonary consult services at Buffalo General Medical Center (BGMC) and Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
In the MICU we are responsible for the care of critically ill patients from within the Kaleida Health system and, as a tertiary care center, routinely accept transfers from surrounding hospitals. On pulmonary service, I am consulted for a wide range of disorders, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, pulmonary arterial hypertension, lung masses and interstitial lung disease. I also provide pre-operative assessments and ventilator management for our non-medical critical care services.
Together with other faculty from the division, I oversee the training of residents, interns, medical students and pulmonary critical fellows who rotate through the MICU and pulmonary services. As a division, we are actively involved in didactic teaching sessions as well as day-to-day bedside teaching. In addition, I teach at UB’s School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and provide core lectures for students rotating through internal medicine at BGMC.
