Faculty Appointments


Our approach to medicine is to treat you as we, or how we would wish our family, to be treated; namely, in a timely, responsive, and informed manner along with attentiveness and compassion.

Professional Background

He initially started practice at Strong Memorial Hospital as one of their burn, trauma, and acute care surgeons and continues to practice this specialty as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse. After the closure of Lakeside in 2013 Dr. King continued his community surgery practice in the Brockport area at Strong West and also holds a faculty appointment as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery at the University of Rochester.
