Hello, this is Michael Gottlieb.
I am a doctor in Los Angeles, board-certified in internal medicine and clinical immunology/ allergy. I have a teaching faculty appointment as an Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
I have a long history of involvement with HIV/AIDS dating from 1981 when with colleagues I authored the first report to the CDC identifying AIDS as a new disease. Some of the highlights of my career are listed in the links and media sections of this website. My early involvement is chronicled in And the Band Played On by the late Randy Shilts. I am currently a trustee of the Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance (GAIA) which does HIV/AIDS relief in the villages of Malawi, Africa. More about GAIA’s work in Malawi can be found at http://www.thegaia.org.
I am a New Jersey native with an undergraduate degree from Rutgers University and graduated from the University of Rochester School of Medicine in 1973. I completed my residency in internal medicine at Strong Memorial Hospital of the University of Rochester (N.Y.) My post-doctoral training was in immunology and rheumatology at Stanford University School of Medicine where I did research at the Howard Hughes Medical Research Institute.
My current medical practice is located at Synergy Hematology and Oncology,5901 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles, California. In my practice I treat patients with general internal medicine problems as well as patients with HIV and other viral (e.g. type C hepatitis) and immunologic diseases including allergies and asthma. I am a member of the medical staffs at Cedars Sinai Medical Center and Olympia Medical Center in Los Angeles.
This site provides information for patients about my medical practice, and for the general public about my work in HIV/AIDS.
