  • Francis W Peabody said: “… the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient”

    I am a primary care physician to adults and children, forging long-term relationships with my patients and their families, as their doctor from birth to death. I am board-certified in internal medicine and pediatrics.
    My mission in medicine is four-fold: to provide empathetic and expert patient care, to teach and train the next generation of physicians, research and global health.

    I practice in UBMD’s Division of Internal Medicine at Conventus-- part of the Buffalo Niagara medical campus. I therefore offer easy access primary care to all staff and students in the medical campus, and their families.

    I have a Ph.D. in biochemistry and worked for a decade as a scientist and professor. I therefore have an interest in genetic and metabolic disorders. I led adult cystic fibrosis care for five years at the Marshfield Clinic in Wisconsin. I continue to provide care to patients with these congenital diseases.

    I have a decade of experience in training different learners in the outpatient setting, on international medical mission trips and in the hospital.

    My research is on bacteriophages -- their role in the microbiome of the respiratory tract and in genomic predictors of pathogenicity in bacteria. I also do research on problems I have seen in my patient population – suicidal ideation and risk in high school students and obesity in children.

    I believe a good history and physical exam can reduce needless testing in the search for a diagnosis. My skills have been honed by practice in Africa and Latin America. I was a short-term Ebola Clinician in Sierra Leone during the 2014-2015 outbreak and remain committed to delivering healthcare internationally.

    I offer primary care support to specialty services and welcome learners and collaborators in our mission to provide excellent healthcare to populations locally and globally.
