She aims to meet her patients where they are and address the concerns that are most important to them while also educating them about evidence-based ways to improve health and prevent diseases.

Dr. Papuzza is originally from Corning, NY but came to the Capital Region to study as part of the Siena College/Albany Medical College 8-year degree program. She fell in love with the area and decided to stay here for residency and to practice medicine. Outside medicine, Dr. Papuzza loves to travel and hike, especially with her husband and dog in the Adirondacks and exploring local trails.
