Meet Our Team
The Medical Team at The Salerno Center
Led by Dr. John P. Salerno, founder of the Salerno Center in New York City, we have a fabulous team comprised of highly trained medical professionals who genuinely care about our patients and believe in the power of complementary medicine.
Complimentary medicine is different than alternative medicine. Complimentary medicine is when a non-mainstream practice is used together with conventional medicine. Alternative Medicine, on the other hand, replaces conventional medicine.
Dr. Salerno’s medical approach embraces the whole person – mind, body, and spirit – treating the entire person rather than just symptoms.
Please come and meet our team at The Salerno Center in New York City.

Dr. Marcia A. Harris
Dr. Marcia A Harris MD trained at the prestigious Weill Cornell Medical Center after completing medical school at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Dr Harris brings a wealth of experience to the table. Having practiced allopathic medicine for more than 20 years, the subsequent 17 plus years have been focused on modalities such as Wellness and Preventative medicine, Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for males and females primarily using BHRT pellets which she introduced to the New York area 20 years ago, weight management/weight loss and nutrition counseling, as well as thyroid and adrenal issues.
Another area of focus for Dr. Harris is the treatment of sexual dysfunction with cutting edge technology: vaginal rejuvenation for females with anorgasmia, atrophic vaginitis, vaginal laxity and stress and urge incontinence and acoustic pressure wave technology for males suffering from erectile dysfunction. While hormones play a large part in the above, it may not be the entire picture. Anatomical contributing factors at times have to be addressed. She is a certified, experienced Gynecologist and prides herself on being able to take care of the “whole” patient and getting to the “root cause” of whatever the problem is.
She brings her wealth of experience as a renowned surgeon and clinician to the table and customizes her care to each individual patient. Her mission is to change lives!
