Biography

Annmarie Liapakis, MD, became interested in treating liver disease when she saw how seriously it affects patients. She felt like it was an area she could make a real difference. As a physician, her goal is to help patients not only with their physical symptoms, but also their emotional well-being.

Dr. Liapakis helps patients with end-stage liver disease strategize to increase their chances of getting a transplant and encourages them and their family members to talk openly about the anxiety they are likely experiencing. Additionally, she finds ways to include the patient’s family in conversations and decisions as much as possible. “As a sister, a mother, a wife, I can relate,” she says. “I always think about what type of anxiety are they dealing with and how can I help alleviate that stress?”

Beyond seeing patients, Dr. Liapakis is passionate about ending the social stigma surrounding liver disease that can prevent people from seeking treatment early enough to make a difference. She serves as the co-chair for Donate Life Connecticut, and as Vice Chair of Education for Medical Advisory Committee at the American Liver Foundation.
