Professional Summary:

I am board-certified in neurology and clinical neurophysiology. My clinical practice focuses on the care of patients with epilepsy. With advanced training, my expertise lies not only in clinical care but also in interpreting electroencephalography (EEG) and performing electrodiagnostic studies, including nerve conduction studies (NCS) and electromyography (EMG). I see outpatients at Buffalo General Medical Center (BGMC) and the UBMD Neurology clinic in Williamsville. I am one of the attending physicians in the epilepsy monitoring unit at the Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. I also attend the inpatient neurology service at BGMC and the Buffalo VA Medical Center (Buffalo VAMC).

My research focus is on epilepsy, but I am open to research ideas that address other neurological diseases which can help patient management. My current research is mainly chart review retrospective studies on: 1.) the yield of EEG after new-onset seizures and 2.) potential modifiable factors contributing to the delay of epilepsy surgery. I will participate in a few multicenter studies, including one that aims to determine the main reason for 30-day readmission to the epilepsy monitoring unit. Another is a prospective study for a new medication that might help with super-refractory status epilepticus. I am also interested in conducting retrospective studies on the association between epilepsy and stress.

I am the clinical neurophysiology fellowship director. I design training curriculum, interview fellowship applicants and coordinate the scholarly activity of fellows. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to help fellows develop into successful neurologists specialized in clinical neurophysiology.

I am also actively involved in research mentorship and in the teaching of medical students, neurology residents and clinical neurophysiology fellows. With my extensive experience in conducting research with trainees, I am familiar with the needs of residents and fellows and enjoy helping them and providing guidance to them throughout the duration of their training.
