General Neurology; Neurology
I am a board-certified neurologist, and I care for patients with a broad spectrum of neurologic conditions. I evaluate patients with new onset of neurologic symptoms such as headache, numbness, weakness, memory loss, confusion, problems with equilibrium, difficulty walking and disturbances in speech and vision. I provide ongoing care for patients with headaches, epilepsy, back pain and a variety of chronic neurologic conditions. I also have extensive experience in caring for adults with developmental disabilities. I see outpatients in the UBMD neurology offices at Buffalo General Medical Center and Essjay Rd. in Williamsville. I also see patients and supervise residents at the Buffalo General Medical Center outpatient clinic.
I am deeply invested in the success of our medical students and have distinguished myself in teaching by receiving numerous teaching awards over the course of my career. I am the clerkship director for the required fourth-year medical school neurology module and have served in this role since 1991. I also teach Advanced Medicine, the pre-clinical neuroscience and musculoskeletal modules and the Clinical Practice of Medicine course. I bring to all my teaching and student interactions my keen interest in humanism in medicine.
With a master’s degree in medical management and significant experience in hospital environments, I have expertise in measuring and improving quality of care, patient satisfaction and efficiency of care. I also have extensive experience in graduate medical education, risk management, physician compensation models and regulatory and compliance issues in health care.
