Professional Summary:

As a clinician actively involved in patient care, I see patients in my office at 1020 Youngs Road, suite 110 in suburban Amherst, as well as in the Conventus Medical Office Building on the downtown Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. My specialty is clinical cardiac electrophysiology, which is the field of cardiology that deals with arrhythmias and implantable devices, such as pacemakers and defibrillators. We have assembled a team of cardiac electrophysiologists who work closely together, so that patients who are evaluated for cardiac arrhythmias in our practice have access to state-of-the-art procedures such as catheter ablation and implantable cardiac electrical devices. I was personally involved in the development of national guidelines for patient care in the treatment of atrial fibrillation from 2004 to 2011, and I am on the writing committee for the upcoming national guideline on ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death.

As the chair of the Department of Medicine at the University at Buffalo, I am involved in the education of residents and fellows as well as clinical research, in addition to my administrative responsibilities. My research focus is electrophysiology and pacing, including implantable device therapy and clinical trials in atrial fibrillation. I am the principal investigator on a study of heart failure patients with atrioventricular block entitled the Block HF Trial, the results of which have recently been published in the New England Journal of Medicine. I have been involved in clinical trials for over 25 years which have led to close to 300 publications. I am a member of a number of prominent professional organizations, and I am the current President of the Association of University Cardiologists.

On a national level, I have held numerous national leadership roles, including serving as president of the Heart Rhythm Society. I have also chaired the American College of Cardiology’s Clinical Electrophysiology Committee and the Food and Drug Administration’s Circulatory System Devices Panel. I currently serve as an associate editor of one of the key journals in the field of cardiology, the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
