Professional Summary:

I am the medical director of the hemodialysis program at Erie County Medical Center (ECMC). In this role, I am involved in all aspects of patient care, safety and quality. I also have an active outpatient practice and care for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), glomerulonephritis, hypertension, polycystic kidney disease, electrolyte abnormalities, anemia, secondary hyperparathyroidism and end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

My clinical research is in two main areas: mechanisms of, and treatment options for anemia; and acid base disturbances in ESRD hemodialysis patients. In collaboration with UB’s Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, I am involved in translational research investigating the mechanisms, risk factors and pathophysiology of erythropoietin dosing and resistance in ESRD patients.

I am interested as well in understanding the development of metabolic alkalosis in patients with ESRD and the condition’s correlation to the risk of sudden cardiac death. I am conducting a clinical study investigating changes in bicarbonate levels post-hemodialysis using various concentrations of Fresenius’ Naturalyte bicarbonate/acetate dialysate and the effects on arrhythmias and cardiovascular hemodynamics.

My involvement in clinical informatics includes serving as an adjunct faculty member and site program director for UB’s ACGME-accredited clinical informatics fellowship program. In this role, I provide medical leadership by assisting physicians in the delivery of patient care, medical education and research, and advancing clinical quality and safety initiatives through the use of clinical information systems. I am currently involved in projects studying methods to increase interoperability of electronic health records across hospital systems, optimizing dialysis-specific electronic health records and developing methods and procedures to reduce copying and pasting in medical documentation.

I supervise nephrology fellows and internal medicine residents during their rotations in the inpatient nephrology consultation services at ECMC.
