Buffalo, NY (WBEN) A year ago, he was behind bars for DWI in the crash that claimed the life of Alix Rice. Today, Doctor James Corasanti has received clinical privileges from Kaleida Health.
Kaleida says it has not hired or retained Corasanti.
In a statement, Kaleida says, "Like all physicians who are interested in practicing in our facilities, he went through this formal review process. His request for privileges first went through the Kaleida Health medical/dental staff’s credentials committee, then to the medical executive committee and finally, to the Kaleida Health Board of Directors."
Dr. Corasanti, a former employee of the Buffalo Medical Group, was a practicing gastroenterologist and the medical director of the GI endoscopy unit at Buffalo General Medical Center until July 2011.
