New location enhances primary care services on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus
UBMD Physicians' Group, the largest medical group in Western New York, has opened its newest UBMD Family Medicine location in the Conventus building on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. UBMD Family Medicine provides complete primary care services, including obstetrics, gynecology, pediatrics, adolescent and adult medicine, and geriatrics.
The practice started seeing patients on Monday.
The new location is part of UBMD's effort to enhance the scope of its services and provide better, convenient access to comprehensive health care in Western New York. Located on the fourth floor of 1001 Main St., Family Medicine joins seven previously opened UBMD practices in the building: Internal Medicine, Neurology, Obstetrics-Gynecology, Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry and Surgery.
At the UBMD Family Medicine Conventus location, Priyanka Patnaik, M.D., serves as the medical director, seeing patients two days a week. Patnaik is also a clinical assistant professor at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo. She is joined by Diane Cozzo, R.N., A.N.P. Starting in July, Sarah Abdelsayed, M.D., will provide addiction medicine services as part of the practice.
"UBMD Family Medicine is proud to be a part of the medical campus transformation, and excited to be opening another practice option in the Conventus building," said Daniel J. Morelli, M.D., president of UBMD Family Medicine. He is a practicing family medicine physician, and professor and chair of the department of family medicine in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at UB. "This location offers convenience for primary care and addiction medicine services, and multiplies opportunities for collaborative medicine among UBMD and other providers to offer the very best in Western New York health care."
In addition to the Conventus location, UBMD Family Medicine has offices in Amherst, Tonawanda and Williamsville; and provides primary care within BestSelf Behavioral Health's Buffalo location. Overall, 20 board-certified physicians provide a wide range of services, including routine child and adult immunizations, colposcopy, colonoscopy, minor surgical outpatient procedures, adult consultations with staff psychologists, specialty consultations for patients with alcohol or drug addictions, and management of chronic illness. Later this summer, the practice expects to add an additional 10 resident physicians to its Tonawanda and Amherst locations.
UBMD Family Medicine is nationally recognized as a model of patient-centered health care, and is one of the 18 practice plans within UBMD Physicians' Group.
