I have a comprehensive background and practice in renal medicine. I take care of patients with acute illness and damage to their kidneys. I also care for dialysis patients and patients experiencing hypertension emergencies, fluid/electrolyte imbalances and life-threatening intoxications. My inpatient clinical practice is based at Erie County Medical Center (ECMC), Buffalo General Medical Center (BGMC) and Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI).
I also see my patients as outpatients at ECMC and the UBMD Youngs Road clinic, where I provide follow-up care. At these locations, I also care for patients diagnosed with end-stage renal disease and chronic kidney disease (CKD), treating their illnesses and the complications that arise from them.
My clinical research interests are wide-ranging. I am particularly interested in fluids and electrolytes and glomerulonephropathy. My past research includes a project focused on rituximab on post-transplant glomerulonephritis.
My faculty responsibilities include serving as a clinical educator for fellows in the Division of Nephrology. I also educate internal medicine residents and medical students regarding nephrology-related aspects of internal medicine. I teach trainees at the bedside, in small groups and in large lecture settings.
