Ericalyn Kasdorf, M.D.

Ericalyn Kasdorf

I have a special interest in the impact of pain and stress on the developing brain. I also enjoy seeing our NICU graduates in developmental clinic where we follow-up many premature infants. It is a privilege to be able to watch your infants grow from the time of delivery to young childhood.


Dr. Ericalyn Kasdorf is the Director of The Perinatal Center at Weill Cornell, and an Assistant Attending Pediatrician at NewYork-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children's Health.  She is also an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medical College.  She completed her undergraduate training at Binghamton University where she graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree double majoring in Biology and Spanish. She earned her medical degree (M.D.) from the State University of New York Upstate Medical University. Dr. Kasdorf came to New York City to complete her residency training in pediatrics and a fellowship in neonatal-perinatal medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell.

She is board certified in both Pediatrics and Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine.
