Pediatrics

Our address may have changed, but the same expert care you’ve come to expect for your child remains. Several pediatric specialties have moved their outpatient departments  from Goryeb Children’s Hospital to the second floor of 55 Madison Avenue in Morristown, NJ. This relocation offers our patients several benefits, like free parking, additional exam rooms, a designated lactation room for breastfeeding mothers and a waiting area designed for patients all ages from infant to young adult. Specialties now at this location include cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, nephrology, neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, adolescent medicine and child psychiatry, genetics, pulmonology and Kid-Fit.
