From the doctor
Donald P. Kotler, MD is an investigator in the fields of nutritional and gastrointestinal disease. A pioneer in the study of the AIDS wasting syndrome, Dr. Kotler has concentrated on the study of body composition in order to define the characteristics of malnutrition in HIV infection and other diseases, as well as strategies to reverse the wasting process. He has been the Principal investigator on single site and mult-center studies of nutritional therapies for HIV-associated malnutrition. In addition, Dr. Kotler has studied the opportunistic enteric complications of AIDS as well as the role of HIV as an enteric pathogen. More recently, he has studied the body composition adn metabolic abnormalities, termed lipodystrophy, that occur in HIV-infected patients on highly active antiretroviral therapy, and is applying his knowledge and laboratory techniques to the study of chronic liver disease. Dr. Kotler has worked collaboratively with a number of investigators at the National Institutes of Health and other research organizations. He has served as a mentor for three doctoral candidates and many GI fellows. He has worked with several national and international groups including the International AIDS Society-USA, NIH Office of AIDS Research Planning Committees, the International Association of Physicians in AIDS Care and others.
Dr. Kotler is frequently named to the list of top doctors, and most recently appeared in the Castle Connolly 2011 edition of “Top Doctors: New York Metro Area” and “America’s Top Doctors.”
