Biography

I focus my work on primary care preventive medicine, especially in areas of cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Excercise and cardiovascular fitness are key components in maintaining health. Sports injuries is another area of expertise.

Teaching medical students and residents encompasses about 10% of my time, both in the office and at the medical school.

My hometown is Endwell, New York. My wife and two daughters have lived in Irondequoit for the past 20 years.

Personal interests include running (completed the Boston Marathon), backpacking, fly fishing, kayaking, and skiing.
