Meet Dr. Peter Tishler
Peter V. Tishler, M.D.
Dr. Peter Tishler is Associate Professor of Medicine at the Harvard Medical School, a Medical Geneticist at the Center for Human Genetics at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, and Director of Residency Training at the Brockton/West Roxbury VA Medical Center.
His clinical interests are in the areas of public health genetics, genetic disease in adults and the porphyrias. Dr. Tishler also trains medical students, residents, genetic counseling students and clinical genetics fellows.
Boston Magazine has listed Dr. Tishler as one of Boston's Top Doctors For Women in the area of genetic counseling. We can understand why. His Porphyria patients are devoted to him and always thank the APF for providing his name as a Porphyria specialist.
