Professional Summary:

As an interventional cardiologist, I perform a variety of invasive diagnostic and interventional cardiac catheterization procedures. My primary interests are in the diagnosis and treatment of acute coronary syndromes and interventional treatment of complex coronary lesions such as unprotected left main coronary artery interventions, bifurcating lesions and chronic total occlusions. Although my focus and passion have been interventional cardiology, I maintain an active interest and involvement in general cardiology and internal medicine and treat a variety of cardiovascular diseases, including congestive heart failure, valvular heart disease, arrhythmias and dyslipidemias.

I practice at the Buffalo VA Medical Center (Buffalo VAMC) where I have been the chief of the cardiac catheterization laboratory since 1999. In addition to my responsibilities in the laboratory, my duties include attending on the cardiology consult service, covering the inpatient acute medicine service and interpreting a variety of non-invasive studies (e.g., stress tests, Holter and event monitor studies and EKGs).

I enjoy teaching and working with medical students, residents and fellows as they progress through their hospital rotations on cardiology consults and weekend medicine service coverage. I also mentor, supervise and teach fellows in the cardiac catheterization laboratory and outpatient cardiology clinic.
