Elissa Ortolani, MD

PGY-5 Resident

Hometown: Buffalo, N.Y.

College/Medical School: Boston College (undergrad), Boston University (graduate), SUNY Buffalo (med school)

Hobbies/Interests: Running, spinning, cooking, and baking (basically any excuse to use my Kitchen Aid mixer), exploring new restaurants, and spending time with my family.

An Interesting Fact About Yourself: I’m from Buffalo NY and proud of it! This means I know how to appropriately drive in the snow, am forever a Bills fan, and eat plenty of Sahlens hotdogs.

Likes About Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC: I love the people of Children's! We are a community who support each other and encourage one another to be better physicians. My Children's experience has allowed me to explore all my interests broadly, and ultimately settle on my love for neurology.
