Jennifer Cockrell, M.D.

Dr. Cockrell grew up in nearby Natchitoches, LA.  She graduated magna cum laude from Northwestern State University with a BS in Biology before pursuing her medical education at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport. In 2004, she proudly earned her medical degree and was honored with membership in the esteemed Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society.  After completing her medical residency training at LSUHSC while raising her young family, Dr. Cockrell made Shreveport her home. Since 2007, she has been a valued member of Mid City Pediatrics, certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

As a parent of three wonderful children, Dr. Cockrell intimately understands the challenges and joys of parenthood firsthand. Having experienced parenting through various ages and developmental stages, she understands the unique needs and concerns parents face at every stage of their children’s growth.

Married to Brian Cockrell, an archaeologist with the US Army Corps of Engineers, their lifelong connection began at the age of 4.  The Cockrells are active members of St. Joseph Catholic Church.  For Dr. Cockrell, family time remains a top priority, whether it is at home, enjoying a movie, or traveling together. In her personal time, she finds balance through daily runs, reading, and the relaxation of knitting. Her compassionate and empathetic approach to children’s health, coupled with her commitment to meeting each child’s and family’s individual needs, exemplifies Dr. Cockrell’s genuine passion for providing exceptional care across all age groups.
