nyspmr logo -new

Dear Colleagues,

It is with deep regret and profound sadness that we inform you of the passing of Dr. Irvin Kotkin. Dr. Kotkin was the current Treasurer of the New York Society of PM&R. He was a NYSPMR member since 1979. He was very active and served our society in different positions throughout the years, including President, Chair of the legislative committee and CAC member. Dr. Kotkin was also an active member of the Medical Society of the State of NY since 1985 and the Queen’s County Medical Society. Throughout the course of his career, Dr. Kotkin has shown relentless commitment and dedication to the field of PM&R. For many years he devoted his time to advocating on behalf of the field of Physiatry, taking multiple trips to Albany to speak to state legislators.

Dr. Kotkin was an incredible friend, mentor and colleague to us in the field and his passing is an incredible loss. Dr. Kotkin is survived by his wife Nanci and children William, Sean and Tara.

Funeral arrangement details can be found below.
