Pediatric Critical Care Medicine; Pediatrics

Hospital-based provider only

Professional Summary:

As a pediatric intensivist, I am responsible evaluating and treating children and young adults afflicted with critical illness and varying degrees of end-organ dysfunction and failure. I am also actively involved in the supervision and education of medical students, resident physicians, and fellows in pediatric critical care medicine. My practice is located at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital, where our division is committed to providing comprehensive, expert care and multidisciplinary support for the children of Western New York and their families.

Throughout the course of my subspecialty training, I developed a special interest in quality improvement, and personally developed an award-winning project at Duke Children’s Hospital in Durham, North Carolina which focused on streamlining and standardizing communication for all postoperative admissions to its pediatric ICU. This work, the first of its kind in a pediatric multidisciplinary, non-cardiac, ICU demonstrated sustainable improvements in communication errors, antibiotic delays, and pain control, upwards of one year after its implementation. I am looking forward to working with the expert teams here at Oishei Children’s Hospital to find ways in which we might build upon our mutual past successes and continue to help set the standard for best practice medicine.
