Jill Roberts Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease
The Jill Roberts Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease is dedicated to the research and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), a condition affecting more than 1 million Americans that most often results from two specific diseases: ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
Our mission is to improve patient care by personalizing therapies for IBD and to discover cures for Crohn’s disease and colitis.
The JRC is one of the nation’s leading multidisciplinary centers for the diagnosis, comprehensive care and innovative treatment of patients with IBD. We offer integrated clinical services from the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medicine network, including access to world-class surgeons, pediatricians, rheumatologists and hepatologists.
We offer patients early, effective IBD interventions, including cutting edge clinical trials that aim to treat and prevent the progression of Crohn’s disease and colitis.
Building on the delivery of comprehensive care, we are committed to improving the lives of patients and families by developing unique clinical services, including a dedicated IBD nutrition program, stress management support, an IBD-related musculoskeletal health and wellness program that focuses on bone, muscle and joint health, IBD genetic testing and counseling and dysplasia/colorectal cancer screening and surveillance programs.
Our goal is to develop novel, safer treatments through “lab to life” research, translating laboratory discoveries into transformative therapies that improve patients’ lives.

What Our Patients Are Saying
"Dr. Abramowitz is great. She takes time with you to address all your concerns and is interested in getting to the bottom of what is causing your issues. She is serious and academic in presentation, and I found it refreshing as her medical curiosity and knowledge are top notch. She wasn't dismissive and listened carefully to me. I had both a colonoscopy and endoscopy with her and she was calm and professional and the staff at Weill Cornell was great. She was thorough in her examinations and I feel like I am in excellent hands."
"Absolutely love her. She is so intelligent! She is so precise when it comes to treatment. I don’t think there are any words to express my gratitude for all she has done for me."
"Without question one of the top doctors in the world in her specialty. Knowledgeable, insightful, caring and very bright. Dr Scherl spend a huge amount of time asking all the right questions and offering multiple options for treatment as well as carefully articulating the pros and cons of each so we can make the right decisions. Dr Scherl is a very special doctor and I cannot recommend her enough."
