Dr. Kerr maintains an active clinical practice in rheumatology, including providing consultative services for other sub-specialists at the Medical Center. Since the mid-1980s, Dr. Kerr initiated and has expanded rheumatology clinics at North General Hospital, bringing expertise in rheumatology to an area in East Harlem where none previously existed. Her research has included studies of tumor necrosis factor inhibition for the treatment of severe psoriatic arthritis. She has a particular interest in geriatric rheumatology and runs a rheumatology clinic within the Coffey Geriatric Practice. In addition, she developed the Annenberg Connective tissue Disease clinic, run with our fellows, which is a significant component of of the rotation for this speciality for residents and medical students. The complexity and challenging nature of inner city connective tissue disease, have led to this clinic becoming a referral resource for clinical trials and observational studies.

Dr. Kerr is no longer accepting new patients.
