Leah C. Kidder, Physician Assistant

Family medicine gives me the ability to care for entire families. It’s a chance to build great relationships.

Leah C. Kidder has been practicing medicine for five years and chose to come back to her hometown to give back to the community she grew up in. She chose a medical career, to not only help people understand the importance of staying healthy but also because she is amazed at the complex physiology of people and wanted to study it daily.

She also takes a very personal approach to patient care. She realizes that each patient is unique and wants them to play a role in their healthcare decision-making because each may require a different approach to treatment.

You can sum up physician assistant Leah Kidder as a very positive person. She enjoys making people smile and finds the positivity she receives from them and her coworkers rewarding.

When she isn’t at Tri-County, she is outdoors with her beautiful family.

A passion for building relationships and practicing medicine.

A graduate of the Temple University School of Medicine, Dr. DePra has practiced medicine for nearly 30 years. Called into medicine from a young age, he loves the variety and relationships he builds in family medicine. Those relationships are what keep him motivated. He’s known many of his patients for over 20 years.

The relationships he has with his patients are also a part of Dr. DePra’s approach to patient care. He likes to relate to and focus on the individual needs and personalities of each patient.

Patient relationships are not the only thing important to Dr. DePra. He joined Tri-County Family Medicine because of the staff. “My colleagues are a great group of service oriented, patient focused doctors,” Dr. DePra said. “And they balance career and family life well.” We like to think so too, Dr. DePra.

When he is not making friends and serving the community, Dr. DePra does likes to fish, hunt, practice Taekwondo, and do mission work in Guatemala.

Where curiosity and compassion intersect to benefit children. Meet Pediatrician, Dr. Mosher.

Dr. Mosher has been a pediatrician for over 25 years and with Tri-County since 2015. She’s board certified in both pediatrics and medical genetics. Her training and every day experience as a pediatrician help her meet the unique needs of children, through all of their developmental stages, as they grow and mature.

Her compassion and concern for issues that affect children and adolescents is what led her to practice medicine. That same compassion is Dr. Mosher’s approach to patient care.

Dr. Mosher says that Tri-County Family Medicine’s great reputation is what influenced her to join us. “Tri-County has community-based values and global concerns. We share a common goal to provide the best of care to our patients each and every day.”

Not only is Dr. Mosher a great pediatrician and mother of two, she is a skilled photographer. When she’s not capturing the beauty of nature, she enjoys hiking.

Caring for patients through all aspects of their life.

Anita Eck, PA has been with Tri-County Family Medicine for over 20 years. She has been serving our community as a primary care provider and preceptor for physician assistant students. Anita has called Tri-County home for her entire career!

Receiving her education in Texas, Anita graduated from the University of Texas and relocated to New York state to begin her career as a physician assistant. Later, she expanded her career by becoming a clinical instructor for Rochester Institute of Technology’s physician assistant students.

Tri-County’s focus on family and sense of community is what drew Anita to practice here. “Being in a rural community has allowed me to interact with my patients, both while caring for them and interacting with them in the community. I enjoy that!”

Anita’s love of helping people influenced her to practice family medicine. Her position enables her to care for patients through all aspects of their lives, from newborn to the elderly. “I have patients that are now having children and am caring for them as well as their aging parents. Not only is this a bonus, but this family history aids me in caring for them.”

Beyond work, Anita serves in the community as a board member at the Vincent House, a local hospice home and volunteers at the Cohocton Food Pantry. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends.
