CLINICAL EXPERIENCE

Present Appointment

Aug2018- Present

Clinical Associate Professor of Pediatrics

Department of Pediatrics, Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes Center

John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital &

University at Buffalo, State University of New York, Buffalo, NY

I am board certified in pediatric endocrinology and diabetes. As a pediatric endocrinologist, I manage children and adolescents, both as inpatients and outpatients, with various endocrinological and metabolic disorders. I am particularly involved in the care of youths with juvenile diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, calcium and bone disorders, abnormalities of growth and puberty, and disorders of sex development.

I am significantly involved in the care of youth with abnormal weight gain and insulin resistance, which was also the focus of my research in fellowship.

I was integrally involved in the development of the diabetes self-care management education program at the Diabetes Center of the Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. Subsequently, our center was recognized by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) for the Education Recognition Program. I am the Program Coordinator at the Diabetes Center of the Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo (WCHOB) for the program. I supervise the diabetes self-care management education provided by the center’s certified diabetes educators and nutritionists to youth diagnosed with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Additionally, I coordinate quality improvement projects that are focused on improving diabetes care delivery.

In my role as an American Board of Obesity Medicine certified physician and a pediatric bariatrician, I have worked with the Kaleida Health Foundation and department of Pediatric Surgery at the Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo to develop a multi-disciplinary weight management center for the children and adolescents. It is a regional referral center designed to manage youth with obesity and obesity-related co-morbidities. A select population of the youth undergoes bariatric surgery. As the medical director of the center, I am not only responsible for the clinical care but have administrative responsibilities including, but not limited to, coordination of care between the various providers, management of budget, review of the revenue cycles, and evaluation and management of quality of care.

I conduct clinical research and publish on various aspects of general pediatrics and pediatric endocrinology. My current focus is on the prevention of abnormal weight gain in children and adolescents with new-onset type 1 diabetes.

I also mentor UB medical students, pediatric residents, pediatric surgical residents and pediatric endocrine fellows in research on topics related to diabetes and obesity.

Aug 2012- Aug2018

Clinical Assistant Professor of Pediatrics

Department of Pediatrics, Division of Endocrinology/ Diabetes Center

Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo &

State University of New York at Buffalo

Buffalo, NY

Previous Appointments

Jul 2011- Jun 2012

Academic Research Fellow

Division of Endocrinology/ Diabetes Center

Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo &

State University of New York at Buffalo

Buffalo, NY

Following completion of my ACGME accredited fellowship in Pediatric Endocrinology at the State University of New York, University at Buffalo in June 2011, I worked as an academic research fellow in the same division for another year to enhance my experience in clinical research. During this year, I focused on clinical research in Type 1 Diabetes and Obesity. The preliminary findings of the research were presented at ADA 72nd scientific sessions in the form of a poster and, finalized results were later presented in the Endocrine Society meeting in 2013.

Jul 2008- Jun 2011

Pediatric Endocrinology Fellow

Division of Endocrinology/ Diabetes Center

Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo &

State University of New York at Buffalo

Buffalo, NY

The John R Oishei Children’s Hospital (formerly known as the Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo) is the regional referral center for all pediatric endocrine disorders in Western NY. The various pediatric multi-specialty divisions in the hospital, including the hematology-oncology, genetics, pediatric and neonatal intensive care divisions provide a large referral base for neonates and children with extremely challenging endocrine disorders. Additionally, over 900 children with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes receive their care at the Diabetes Center.

This created an excellent learning experience, providing me with opportunities to manage neonates, children, and adolescents with a variety of endocrine disorders and diabetes. I additionally volunteer as medical staff at the ADA diabetes camp annually, which has been one of the most valuable experiences that I have gained in the day-to-day care of children with T1DM. Research being an important part of my career, I spent a significant part of my time at the biochemistry laboratory in the University at Buffalo, under the mentorship of Lucy Mastrandrea, MD, PhD, to study new bio-markers for insulin resistance.

Jul 2005-Jun 2008

Pediatric Resident

Department of Pediatrics

Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo &

State University of New York at Buffalo

Buffalo, NY

Pediatric residency in a university-based program at a multi-specialty, free-standing Children's hospital was an invaluable experience, which helped me refine my skills as a pediatrician. I was able to pursue research activity during this period which was presented as a poster at a national meeting and was recently accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. The training period helped me realize the importance of pediatric-sub-specialization, not only to provide quality care for children but also for my development as a clinician and a scientist. I found my niche in pediatric endocrinology.

May 2002-May 2005

Pediatric Registrar (equivalent to Hospitalist)

Department of Pediatrics, Center for Child Health,

Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi,India

I was responsible for both in-patient and out-patient care of pediatric patients including those in the PICU, and the Liver transplant-ICU. I was directly involved in the post-operative care of pediatric patients following liver transplants. Simultaneously, I was involved in the care of pediatric patients in a 10 bedded PICU.

Additionally, I supported the care of pediatric patients in various sub-specialties including pediatric endocrinology and diabetes. The variety of complex pediatric patients seen at the center provided ample opportunities for clinical research and publications.

May 1999- Apr 2002 Pediatric Resident

Safdarjung Hospital

New Delhi, India

Pediatric residency in one of the busiest hospitals in India set the stage for excellent on-job training in pediatrics. I had many opportunities to manage large numbers of extremely complicated pediatric conditions since Safdarjung hospital is a referral center for patients from all over India. It also provided the logistic support, mentoring, and population base required for clinical research. By the end of my residency, I had not only evolved as a clinician but was also able to publish my research in a peer-reviewed journal.

Jan 1998-Jan 1999 Medical/Surgical Internship

Maulana Azad medical College

New Delhi, India

The rotatory internship is a mandatory part of medical school training where the focus is on the development of clinical experience. I was involved in direct patient care for 1-2 months duration in each of the following specialties - medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, ENT, ophthalmology, pediatrics, preventive and social medicine.
