Pediatric Clinic

Missions and Goals

Preceded by the success of the Adult HOP Clinic, the Pediatric HOP Clinic first opened its doors in April 2003 with the efforts of dedicated team of founding members. Currently, we meet twice monthly to see our patients. There are major differences between caring for the pediatric versus the adult population, and a lot of these issues are addressed in the way we run our clinics. We actively screen and enroll our eligible patients into the NJ Family Care program where they will be guaranteed health insurance through Medicaid. Pediatric patients also need more frequent follow-up visits for even well-checks and do not have justifications for non-compliance. Student doctors need to be fully invested in maintaining this clinical alliance.
