No matter the weather, you can always find Dr. Cipolla cheering on the Buffalo Bills and Sabres!

In His Own Words

What are your main strengths as a physician?

I listen to my patients, make sure we are addressing their concerns, and clearly communicate my recommendations. I do my best to give each patient the attention and care that they need. I am always pursuing the opportunity to provide the most advanced treatments in our field.

What do you like most about being a physician? 

I enjoy the interactions with patients and satisfaction when meeting their treatment goals.

If you weren’t a physician, what do you think you’d be doing now?

Business management or teaching.  I have been very involved in the UB Otolaryngology residency program.  I am currently the Assistant Residency Program Director, and I love getting to play a role in teaching and training the next generation of ENT physicians!
