Dr. Jody Ross



It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our dear friend and colleague Dr. Jody Ross Birns. Together with Dr. Avvocato, Dr. Ross founded Westchester Park Pediatrics with the commitment to deliver quality pediatric care to the Westchester community. Jody was a beloved doctor, mentor, colleague and friend who dedicated her life to the children and families that she loyally served for over 30 years. Her superior knowledge and experience combined with the ability to understand and respond to each family’s individual needs is what made her a truly unique person and a compassionate, caring physician. Her legacy is a testament to that hard work and devotion. We honor her memory by dedicating ourselves to the high level of professionalism that she always espoused.

Dr. Jody Ross attended Union College and St. Louis University School of Medicine. She completed her pediatric internship and residency training at Mt. Sinai Hospital in NYC. She is Board Certified in general pediatrics and is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Dr. Ross has been practicing pediatrics in Westchester County since 1986. She prides herself in the close, long term relationships she formulates with the patients and their families.

Dr. Ross embodied a level of caring and love for her patients that we hope to always continue in her memory. Dr. Ross considered all of her patients her family, and we at Westchester Park Pediatrics and Bridgespan Medicine remain committed to all of Dr. Ross’s patients, and to creating a professional and caring transition for all families.
