Kenneth R. Perrine, Ph.D.
I had the pleasure of graduating from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and am now providing neuropsychological services at NY Presbyterian Hospital/Weill-Cornell Medical College. As a neuropsychologist, I enjoy being able to see the patient in a holistic fashion, incorporating life circumstances, family setting, and personality in addition to their neurological functioning. For me, understanding the brain and its two-way interaction with behavior is a fascinating scientific undertaking that is enhanced by the interpersonal relationship with the patient. My goal is to undertand the person as a whole, and help integrate their neurological functioning with the rest of their activities to achieve the best possible quality of life.
Dr. Perrine is a board-certified clinical neuropsychologist who has been affiliated with Weill-Cornell College of Medicine NY Presbyterian Hospital/Weill-Cornell since 1999. He received his undergraduate degree in Psychology from Cornell University and his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Kentucky.
