About Mercy Tomy


I grew up in NYS and have lived in essentially every part of the state. Before joining Roswell Park, I worked as an Internist practicing outpatient primary care in Syracuse, NY. From there I pursued fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Medicine and have never looked back.

My career in Palliative Medicine has truly been a joy and privilege — from the patients that allow us to help them at their most vulnerable moments, to the amazing compassionate people I am honored to call my colleagues. As part of the University at Buffalo's HPM fellowship, I am involved in training palliative fellows as well as medical students, residents and fellows from other specialties.
