Philosophy of Care

In general, I believe one of the most important aspects of providing excellent care to my patients is being a good listener. Too often in medicine, we physicians get busy in practice and sometimes details get lost in translation. I pride myself on being as clear as possible with explanation of diagnosis, prognosis, and various treatment options. I often err on the side of least-invasive options for treatment first and only suggest more invasive strategies when those treatments fail to improve symptoms over the expected time course for recovery. 

Personal Interests

I love sports! Playing them, watching them...you name it! But, my number one priority outside of work is my son, TJ. Right now, he's only two years old, but giving me a run for it with his everyday wonder and boundless energy. I am an avid Buffalo sports fan, having grown up in the suburbs of Buffalo, and so too it has become TJ's burden to cheer for the teams through victory and defeat. 

Biography

I was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. My father was a machinist for a regional hospital system, and my mother an OBGYN in a busy private practice. They instilled in me the value of working hard to achieve my goals and the importance of helping others whenever you can. I have an older brother and younger sister who live out of state, but we stay in close contact. I graduated from the University of Rochester and spent a few years working as a lab technician at Strong Memorial Hospital before leaving the area to attend medical school in San Francisco. I returned to the region and completed my Family Medicine Residency training in Binghamton, then spent a year in Grand Rapids, Michigan for my sports medicine fellowship training year. I returned to Binghamton to help build the educational program in sports medicine in 2007, and stayed there in practice until I decided to move to Rochester to start anew. I joined Rochester General Hospital in 2013 and helped grow the sports medicine program from the ground up. I am the head Team Physician for the athletes at RIT, which most days seems like its own city. You will often catch me with my son, watching the RIT sports teams competing throughout the year.
