UBMD Pathology


Anatomic Pathology


Professional Summary:

I enjoy all aspects of anatomic pathology, but due to my fellowship training I have a special place in my mind for Gynecologic pathology and Cytopathology. In the areas of GYN pathology I‘m especially interested in vulvar pathology and have research interests in melanocytic lesions of the vulva. In Cytopathology I am interested in studying anal pap smears and working towards better guidelines for diagnosis and clinical management.

In a clinical capacity my daily work includes signing out surgical pathology specimens (both biopsies and resections), cytopathology specimens, autopsies as well as interpreting frozen sections.

I have had special training in medical education and am lucky to get to work with residents here at UB by both across the scope teaching as well as hands on teaching in the gross room. In addition I will be giving core lectures and functioning in the roll of assistant to the director of the residency program for administrative duties and helping with recruitment and interviewing of future residents. I hope to incorporate my clinical research interests with teaching and work with residents on projects for presentation at national meetings and original publications
