Weill Cornell Medicine's infectious disease physicians are at the forefront of treatment, research, and support for those with HIV infection, AIDS, and other infectious diseases.

  • Two ambulatory clinics, one located at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Centers at 68th Street, which is co-located with the Pediatric Center for Special Studies, and an off-site ambulatory site in Chelsea, co-located with the Gay Men's Health Crisis.
  • On-site access to current studies and trials. Currently, areas of clinical investigation include: antiretroviral therapy, immune-based therapies, viral co-infections in HIV, as well as treatment and prevention of HIV-related illnesses and their complications.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Pearl Yuan-Garg

Dr. Han is the consummate professional. He is deeply knowledgeable, experienced and compassionate. He is also inquisitive as a medical science researcher. We brought our young daughter to him for a second-opinion consultation, after experiencing multiple blunders at another major NYC hospital before, during and after her hospitalization there to treat an acute septic case resulting from sacroiliac joint & sacral bone infections-any of those blunders could have life-and-death implications in her case. We felt a huge relief after seeing Dr. Han who now heads up a thorough investigation of her case. As parents we finally see hope and a path forward to help our child overcome her first major challenge in life.

Talking about Karen P. Acker, M.D.

Went to Dr. Acker for a chronic issue that no one has been able to help with for 3 years and we finally found someone who had help to offer. She is also lovely and patient and warm. Couldn’t recommend her enough.
