Latha Jadhav, MD
Dr. Latha Jadhav, a Paterson native who took over her mother’s 30-year-old pediatric practice upon her retirement in 2012, treats a growing number of patients in a bright, colorful, family-oriented office. “Our emphasis is always on families. We know all of our patients—and their parents and grandparents—by name,” Dr. Jadhav says.
Personalized, Convenient Care
The practice focuses on caring for children through all stages of growth. Newly renovated with state-of-the-art technology, the office provides a comfortable, supportive environment for kids and their families.
“We offer personalized attention and run an efficient, paperless office, so parents can make same-day appointments and count on their children being seen on time,” says Dr. Jadhav, whose patients endearingly refer to her as “Dr. J.”
Helping Kids Grow
Dr. Jadhav has a special interest in childhood obesity. Her office holds an annual health fair to promote healthy habits for patients and their families. “I treat my patients as I would want my own children to be treated,” says the mother of three.
Dr. Jadhav graduated from Ross University School of Medicine and completed her pediatric residency at Saint Peter’s University Hospital in New Brunswick. A member of the American Academy of Pediatrics, she maintains hospital privileges at Holy Name Medical Center, Hackensack University Medical Center, Saint Barnabas Medical Center, and St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.
“The most rewarding part of what I do is watching kids grow. I love seeing how their personalities develop as they mature from children into teenagers,” she says. “I like to think my patients will grow with me over the next 30 years, the same way they grew with my mother over the past 30 years.”
