Biography

    Dr. Fierer sees patients in the FPA, 5 East 98th Street, 11th floor, New York, NY 10029 for infectious diseases, specializing in HIV and/or Hepatitis C Virus infection. Most insurance are accepted. Dr. Fierer also sees patients with or at risk for HIV/AIDS in the Jack Martin Fund Clinic located in the Center for Ambulatory Medicine, 17 East 102nd Street, 3rd floor, New York, NY 10029. Insurances accepted are Medicaid, Medicare and ADAP.

Research

Dr. Fierer's research interests are focused on the study of acute Hepatitis C (HCV) infection in HIV-infected patients. Hepatitis C infection is highly prevalent in HIV-infected people, but Hepatitis C is rarely diagnosed during the acute phase (first 6 months) of infection and so little is known about the early course of Hepatitis C infection. Further, people who are already HIV-infected at the time they contract HCV infection may be at particular risk of having significant liver disease: a preliminary study in collaboration with Drs. Branch and Dieterich showed the presence of moderately advanced liver damage in HIV-infected people who have acute HCV infection. Dr. Fierer has initiated a larger study to evaluate HIV-infected patients referred by their physicians for acute HCV infection to further investigate the early effects of this infection on liver pathology, on the natural history of the disease, on the effectiveness of treatment, and of the mode of transmission.
