About

Bio

I attended med school and completed my Radiology residency at The University of Connecticut. I continued at UCONN as Assistant Professor of Radiology, with clinical duties at UCHC and the Newington VA Medical Center. At UCHC, I held a number of leadership positions, including chairman of the Medical Imaging QA Committee, co-chairman of the integrated ED/Radiology TQM Committee, and member of the School of Medicine Council. In 1999, I joined the medical staff at Albany Memorial Hospital, where I served as chairman of the Medical Imaging Department from 2001-2013. I was elected AMH Medical Staff Treasurer, Secretary, and Vice-President. In 2008, I completed a Health Care MBA from the UMASS Isenberg School of Management. I have been Medical Director at Capital Imaging Associates since 2001
