BUFFALO, NY - James Corasanti, a local gastroenterologist who struck and killed Amherst teen Alix Rice in 2011 has received clinical privileges to once again practice medicine.
Attorney Joel Daniels represented Corasanti during his trial. "This guy has earned the right to go back to work and serve his patients," he said."
Kaleida Health released the following statement Wednesday:
"Dr. Corasanti has applied for and has received clinical privileges that are consistent with his license to practice medicine. Kaleida Health has not hired him or retained him to provide clinical services.
"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."
