Professional Summary:

As a family doctor I care for the family as a whole, and I am committed to serving the Western New York community that I grew up in. My approach is to become part of the family structure and develop meaningful relationships with all members of the family, promote health and wellness for each individual, learn how best to tailor medical care based on my patients’ beliefs and medical history and offer the continuity of care that is so essential to a trusting patient-physician relationship. I feel privileged that my patients share their significant life events with me; in return, I work with compassion and empathy toward my patients as they experience the best and worst moments of life.

As assistant dean for graduate medical education, my focus is to design and implement a Residents as Educators initiative and further my work in faculty development. I am a certified educator through the Royal College of Physicians and am currently working with a task force of academic physicians at the university to teach and train faculty as educators.

As a faculty member of the medical school, I am committed to my teaching and mentoring responsibilities. I teach medical students and residents in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I also lead seminars, deliver lectures and conduct research alongside my residents. I provide guidance to pre-medical and medical students, and I am a mentor for the Family Medicine Interest Group and the Association of Pre-Medical Students. I want to nurture student and resident interest in family medicine by sharing my joy and passion in this patient-oriented field with them. One of my mentors made an effort to get to know his students as unique individuals. I, too, take the time to become acquainted with my students and residents — to find out their interests and challenges as well as what inspires them — so that I can guide them to becoming excellent and caring family physicians.
