Medical Director, HIV Prevention & Treatment Program
Location: Hamden, Stamford, Telemedicine Accepting New Patients? Yes
Joseph Canarie, MD, FAAP, AAHIVS, is the Medical Director of Anchor Health’s HIV Prevention & Treatment Program. Before he officially joined our team in August of 2020, Dr. Canarie studied under our cofounder A.C. Demidont, DO, AAHIVS, during his residency at Yale New Haven Hospital. Dr. Canarie experienced firsthand how lifesaving competent care is for LGBTQ folks, and he knew Anchor Health was the perfect fit for him.
Growing up on the coast of Maine, Dr. Canarie left to earn degrees from Arizona State University and the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. He then moved to New Haven to complete his combined internal medicine and pediatrics residency at Yale. After graduation, he served as chief resident in pediatrics before coming to Anchor Health full-time. He is a clinical instructor in pediatrics at the Yale School of Medicine and enjoys teaching residents the fundamentals of LGBTQ-competent care.
Dr. Canarie is board-certified in internal medicine and pediatrics and provides comprehensive primary and preventative care to his patients, including gender-affirming medicine, HIV prevention and care, hepatitis C treatment, and more.
Dr. Canarie lives in New Haven with his husband and loves running in East Rock Park, choral concerts, Céline Dion’s French albums, organic gardening, and learning new languages. He also hopes eventually to resume homebrewing—he and his husband burned out after brewing all the beer for their wedding.
