Our History

Richard Lee, MDR&B Medical Group began as the Department of Medicine at Buffalo’s Children’s Hospital. Back then, our focus was medical care for the pregnant patient.

Over time, the department expanded to offer consultative work, primarily in obstetric and gynecological care, to patients across Western New York. Led by Richard V. Lee, MD and Howard Lippes, MD, R&B Medical Group evolved into an independent, private practice under its current name. We’ve been serving the people of Buffalo and Western New York ever since.

Over the years, our concentration broadened and services for general adult medicine and family care were added. Eventually, we moved to our current location in Williamsville. Our staff now comprises a multidisciplinary team of professionals committed to your complete healthcare needs.

We all were greatly saddened by the death of Dr. Lee in the spring of 2013. However, we are as devoted as ever to continuing Dr. Lee’s legacy and vision for decades to come.
