My clinical activities are focused on caring for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and those with end-stage renal disease undergoing renal replacement therapy. I am the chief medical officer of Erie County Medical Center (ECMC); as such, I am responsible for ensuring that the hospital has a high-quality, safe and efficient environment in which our health care professionals can render the best possible care for all patients. I also serve as the liaison between physicians and hospital administration, helping the latter to develop hospital policy and its strategic vision.
My research is focused on addressing population health management. With the use of bioinformatics, my goal is to develop methods that will permit earlier detection of kidney disease and improved models for delivering extended care management for patients with CKD. My past research has included study of the diagnosis and treatment of viral diseases in transplant patients, vascular access problems in hemodialysis patients and the early identification and treatment of CKD.
