Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Marks "My medical training coincided with a time of intense progress in the treatment of HIV infection following the discovery of protease inhibitors and  effective antiretroviral combination therapy.  During my medical school clinical rotations at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia and residency training at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Cornell, I observed the life-saving capacity of these therapies as they became established in clinical practice.  I also had the opportunity to care for patients who had exhausted the currently available drug options and were receiving newer agents through studies such as those conducted at the Cornell Clinical Trials Unit. During these years of progress in the management of HIV, I witnessed viral hepatitis, particularly hepatitis C infection, emerge as an increasingly common cause of morbidity and mortality in HIV-infected persons; however, the available therapies for hepatitis C continued to fail most HIV-infected patients.  These experiences influenced my decision to further my training in the subspecialty of Infectious Diseases, focusing on care of patients coinfected with HIV and viral hepatitis infections.  In addition, I began research with the aim of optimizing treatment of Hepatitis C in HIV-infected patients.   Today, I continue this research at the Cornell Clinical Trials Unit in collaboration with the Center for the Study of Hepatitis C.  I also care for patients living with HIV infection (Center for Special Studies) and viral hepatic infections (Hepatitis Clinic).  In addition, I am fortunate to participate in the teaching of medical students, residents and fellows."
