13 Questions with Erica Kesselman, MD

January 27, 2015
Authored by Sara Brandon

Who wouldn’t want a physician that is an actor, exercise instructor, triathlete, and radio talk show host? Talk about someone who will motivate you to get out there and enjoy life. If you’re looking for a gynecologist, then may I introduce you to Dr. Erica Kesselman. Erica is also mother of two girls and wife of geriatrician Dr. Joseph Botta (they were in medical school together and married while in residency). Even though she’s quite a multi-tasker (the list above isn’t even complete and is ever growing), her priority is her family. They are followed by her besties, who she meets up with as the sun is coming up for some exercise at Body By Design, followed by some good, old-fashioned girl talk at Java Jive.



 Top to bottom: Eric at the 2012 DKH Give It A Trii; with her "besties" at Body by Design and having some fun with co-host Marc Cerrone, MD at WINY 1350.

Read on to learn more about Erica and listen in to the New Day Show on WINY 1350AM the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 a.m. when she dishes about health topics and tries to embarrass Gary O and colleague Dr. Marc Cerrone on the air. Did I mention she’s funny?
