Professional Background

Dr. Purba Gupta completed her Internal Medicine residency and Infectious Diseases fellowship training from Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. Before that, she had completed her medical school and residency from University of Delhi, India. She was in practice at Cleveland, Ohio thereafter. Due to her interest in infections in immunocompromised host, she then went on to pursue advanced fellowship in Transplant and Oncology Infectious Diseases at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore and thereafter accepted a position as an attending physician at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. In 2018, she moved to Rochester, NY to join the Transplant Infectious Diseases Division at Strong Memorial Hospital. Her primary clinical interest is in treating complex infections in immunocompromised host including both solid organ transplant recipients and patients with oncologic malignancies and bone marrow transplant recipients. Dr. Gupta is actively involved in teaching general and transplant infectious disease fellows and internal medicine residents. She is also part of a multidisciplinary transplant team here at Strong and actively participates and contributes in the departmental academic activities.

I strive to provide the highest quality care to my patients. I do so by keeping them informed and involving them actively in decision making. I am a firm believer that open communication with patients and the entire team of providers is important to deliver best medical care. In order to make a difference in their lives, going beyond just a "diagnosis" is important and I try my best to listen patiently to them and coordinating care. I thrive in a challenging environment and believe in lifelong learning by active reading, learning from experience of my colleagues and most importantly, learning from my patients.
