Transitional care for young adults moving into the adult health care system
Tiffany Pulcino, M.D.
Dr. Pulcino was born and raised in Rochester. She attended Mount Sinai Medical School where she completed both her medical degree and master's degree in public health with honors in research. She completed her residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at the University of Rochester in 2008.
Dr. Pulcino is an Instructor of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at the University of Rochester. She is board eligible in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. She is a member of the American College of Physicians and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Dr. Pulcino's special interest is transitional care: the process of young adults moving into the adult health care system, especially those with medical problems diagnosed in childhood, such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, inflammatory bowel disease, and congenital heart disease.
"My goal is to form a trusting partnership with my patients and their families. Together, we can formulate health goals based on their individual needs and the most recent medical evidence." When not working, Dr. Pulcino enjoys spending time with her husband and son, kayaking, and hiking.
