Summary

  • I have been practicing Family Medicine in downtown Buffalo, my hometown, for the past several years. I enjoy treating complex diabetic patients and successfully teaching diabetic management to diverse populations. I adapt easily to new situations and have an interest in healthcare technology and EHR optimization. I am a highly motivated self-starter who can manage multiple priorities with ease. I am an effective team member with outstanding interpersonal and presentation skills. I'm a dedicated, energetic professional with a strong work ethic.
