UBMD Internal Medicine


Internal Medicine; Internal Medicine - General


Professional Summary:

I graduated from the University of Buffalo School of Medicine and completed a residency in Internal Medicine at UB as well. I was a Chief Resident in 1990 and subsequently joined the Department of Medicine as a faculty member in the Division of General Internal Medicine. I served as an Associate Program Director for the Internal Medicine resident training program until 2008. From 2002 until 2008 I became involved in hospital administration and served as the Chief Medical Officer for the Erie County Medical Center. From 2008 until 2011 I served as the Chief Medical Officer for the Seneca Nation Health Department. During that time I completed a Masters of Public Health at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University. In 2011 I returned full time to the Department of Medicine as Division Chief of General Internal Medicine and to ECMCC as VP for Clinical Integration.

Throughout my career I have been very interested in medical education, quality improvement and patient safety. In my role at ECMCC as Vice President for Clinical Integration I have been charged with improving the patient experience and have focused on patient and physician communication. We are currently assessing barriers to effective communication and developing interventions to improve the quality of physician and patient interactions.

I have always maintained that physicians need to actively participate in their communities and for this reason I have been involved with the P2 Collaborative of Western NY and currently am Chair of its Board of Directors. P2 has recently been designated as Western NY‘s population health improvement collaborative and will be actively involved in helping to promote a health prevention agenda for our community.
