Dr. Danielle Brandman is the director of the Center for Liver Disease and Transplantation at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City. She specializes management of patients with liver diseases including autoimmune liver disease, viral hepatitis B and C, fatty liver disease, metabolic liver disease, and liver cancers.
