In Memory of Eric Dreyfuss, M.D.

Eric Dreyfuss, M.D.

With the passing of Eric Dreyfuss, MD, the Pediatric Division of Allergy and Immunology and the Division of Allergy/Immunology and Rheumatology at URMC have lost a devoted clinician, mentor and benefactor. As a professor emeritus, he had over 50 years of experience in the practice of allergy and immunology and was still an active preceptor for allergy/immunology fellows. He will be greatly missed by his colleagues, students and patients.
