Provider Biography

With more than 20 years of clinical experience, Dr. Kurtz’s philosophy of care focuses on empathy. “All patients – especially children – are at their most vulnerable when they’re ill. It’s very important that I put myself in every patient situation and think about how I would want to be treated,” she shares. “Compassion and understanding is key.”

Dr. Kurtz earned her bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Binghamton University - State University of New York in Binghamton, New York, and her medical degree from Tel Aviv University Sackler School of Medicine in Tel Aviv, Israel. She completed her residency at New York University Medical Center, in both its Tisch and Bellevue hospitals. Dr. Kurtz is board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of this community and I look forward to working with a great group of providers,” she says. “I’ve heard so many good things about Mount Nittany Health and the quality care provided to their patients. I look forward to being a part of that team.”

In her spare time, Dr. Kurtz enjoys spending time with friends. A seeker of knowledge, she regularly attends cultural and educational events and delights in learning new things. In addition, Dr. Kurtz enjoys walking the beautiful trails of central Pennsylvania, especially with her dog, that is currently in training to be a therapy animal.
