A true neighborhood practice dedicated to providing high-quality care
Essex-Morris Pediatrics, which has been caring for children and young adults for over 35 years and has been a part of Atlantic Medical Group since 2013, provides the specialized knowledge needed to keep children healthy. There are three board-certified pediatricians on staff, plus a pediatric nurse practitioner, treating newborns to young adults up to the age of 23.
According to Isabel Zuniga, the front-end representative, “We’ve been in practice for many years, most of our patients are third generation, and even employees bring their children here.” The practice can handle everything from routine immunizations, athletic exams, well-child visits, and allergies to the more serious concussion diagnoses and management. For the latter, they use ImPact®Testing, which “is a computerized brain injury measurement tool for children and teens who have sustained a concussion. It will provide a baseline result that can be used to compare to post-injury results,” explained Wendy Ortiz, CMA.
In addition to preventing and treating illnesses, the practice also offers ADHD evaluation and management as well as evaluations for learning disabilities. They also perform prenatal visits and provide advice and assistance with breastfeeding and much more.
When your child is ill, they guarantee same-day appointments. Evening and Saturday appointments are available, and they have a physician on call 24 hours a day. Walk-in visits are also welcome on certain days and times.
Essex-Morris Pediatrics strives to meet every need of parents and their children. Besides all of the above, Zuniga mentions the friendly office staff, the acceptance of most insurances, and the bilingual office (English and Spanish) as some of the reasons that make them stand out.
Being a part of Atlantic Medical Group is also a huge asset. With a network of over 900 doctors, nurse practitioners and physician’s assistants in over 300 locations in northern and central New Jersey and northeast Pennsylvania, they cover a wide range of health care related services. Community-based providers are affiliated with a multitude of hospitals which include Morristown Medical Center, Goryeb Children’s Hospital, Overlook Medical Center, Newton Medical Center, Hackettstown Medical Center and Chilton Medical Center.
