Dr. Cory Kercher

Dr. Cory Kercher is a board-certified pediatrician and an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medical College. Dr. Kercher earned her Bachelor of Arts from Cornell University and her medical degree from George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. She completed her pediatric residency training and served as Chief Resident at New York Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital.

She then worked as a pediatrician at Weill Cornell for 11 years while continuing to serve as a mentor for medical students, residents, and nurse practitioner students. She also served on the Quality and Patient Safety Committee at Cornell.

Dr. Kercher has been featured in the Kids Health Cast Podcast discussing preventative health for newborns and preventative health for toddlers, and has served as a panelist in the Children's Health Council Discovery Panel at Weill Cornell addressing 21st Century Parenting Challenges and How to Solve them.

Dr. Kercher says her greatest joy in being a pediatrician is helping people navigate through what is at the same time the most exciting and frightening experience of their lives—becoming a parent. “Nothing can properly prepare you for the feelings you have when you first bring your newborn home. Family, friends, doctors, and the internet all offer a surplus of advice when your baby comes into the world and you still feel unsure of what to do. From the very beginning, I am there to help guide parents and caregivers make the decisions that work best for their family. I have the privilege of watching families grow, and once nervous parents become confident and comfortable, navigating all the exciting stages their children enter.”

Having worked at a large academic medical center for so many years, Dr. Kercher has taken care of babies and children with a wide range of complex medical diagnoses, including extreme prematurity, various genetic syndromes, rare diagnoses and special needs. She thinks of each child as a whole person with a life ahead of it, instead of a body made up of separate systems. As a mother of four girls, Dr. Kercher is reminded on a daily basis that not all children have the same needs and not every family works the same way.

Dr. Kercher says, “As children get older, I love talking to them and helping them understand how to take care of their own bodies and keep themselves healthy and safe. Eventually, my patients graduate from pediatrics, but I hope to provide them with the foundation for a lifetime of healthy choices.”
