Professional Background

Dr. Rotoli completed his Emergency Medicine Residency at the University at Buffalo from 2009-2012. He also served as Chief Resident from 2011-2012.

Dr. Rotoli is an attending emergency physician at the University of Rochester Medical Center/Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY. He is currently an Assistant Emergency Medicine Residency Program Director. He also is the director of the Deaf Health Pathways humanities elective within the URMC medical school.

Dr. Rotoli is enthusiastic and dedicated to meeting the health needs of the deaf community. He learned American Sign Language in college at the University of Rochester and has used these skills to integrate into the local Deaf community. He has been involved with planning, fundraising, and lecturing at regional deaf health fairs. He has presented at the Rochester Club for the Deaf on a variety of health related and emergency care topics. Dr. Rotoli has also presented nationally on cultural competency when caring for a Deaf ASL user and requesting accommodations in a graduate medical setting.

He seeks to increase provider awareness of the needs of this underserved population through both local and national residency and medical student education. Dr. Rotoli also hopes to continue to improve deaf patient health care delivery and medical knowledge through providing direct access and communication to a physician while working clinically in the emergency department at Strong Memorial Hospital.


My focus has been on marginalized populations, including women and Deaf ASL users. I am working toward expanding my scientific contributions to the literature regarding vulnerable populations, specifically the Deaf ASL user.

Book Chapters
My contributions here are focused on a cultural and linguistic minority: the Deaf ASL user. The chapters provide information from the patient's perspective on health inequities. They also provide a summary of the barriers to care that are experienced by the culturally Deaf patient and recommendations for how to improve provider cultural competency.
