In 1946, the year after World War II ended, four visionary Buffalo physicians, Drs. Ramsdell Gurney, Murray S. Howland Jr., George F. Koepf and Frank Meyers founded Buffalo Medical Group. Three of these doctors had served overseas. While they were eager to resume their medical practices, they decided to abandon the solo practice concept that was the norm at the time and move in another direction. Their experiences during the war led them to embrace a new model, a group physician practice. They firmly believed that this would enable them to provide the best possible care for their patients, and so, they blazed a trail. More than 60 years later, BMG continues to adopt innovative patient care concepts. Our many years of service place us among the oldest and with our continued growth among the largest physician-directed group practices in New York State. Our commitment to improving our patients', health drives us to deliver high quality, cost-effective and accessible health care through a multi-disciplinary approach.

Our physicians embody a long tradition of providing superior medical care, pursuing innovation as well as conducting research and teaching. All BMG physicians are either board certified or board eligible in their respective specialties, and many doctors hold clinical appointments at the University at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

We are a multispecialty medical group that includes a primary care division with more than 30 family medicine and internal medicine physicians, and a specialty care division of over 70 physicians in 24 medical specialty and subspecialty sections. We also employ physician assistants and nurse practitioners to support our many doctors and patients.
