Founded by Dr. Jennifer Shaw, Touchpoint Pediatrics in Chatham specializes in comprehensive, family-centered primary care, and has been providing a “medical home” for families since 2002.

A Patient-Centered Medical Home

Health care consumer and peer resources have recognized Touchpoint as one of New Jersey’s top pediatric practices. The practice was reaccredited by the NCQA, a Washington, DC-based organization dedicated to improving the quality of health care, for meeting the highest level of recognition as a patient-centered medical home. This includes a focus on team-based, coordinated care. “We treat parents as partners in their child’s healthcare team,” Dr. Shaw says.

A board-certified, fellowship-trained developmental and behavioral pediatric specialist, Dr. Shaw has extensive experience managing ADHD, autism and learning disorders. Recognized as a New Jersey’s Favorite Kids’ Docs’ pediatrician since inception, the doctors are on staff at Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center and St. Barnabas Medical Center.Goryeb Children’s Hospital at Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center and St. Barnabas Medical Center.

Meeting Children’s Medical and Non-Medical Needs

Many physicians entrust the care of their children to
Dr. Shaw and her colleagues, who maintain flexible office hours, coordinate care with specialists and follow up with patients. “We treat physical and developmental problems while offering guidance on behavioral and nutritional concerns, sleep problems and sibling rivalry,” she says. “Communication, education and coordination of care are the cornerstones of our philosophy.”

With special expertise in asthma, allergies, prematurity, genetic disorders, digestive and nutritional issues and sports medicine, the pediatricians collaborate to guide families toward healthy habits. “We’re all raising families in this area, so the commitment to being your child’s medical home is one we take very seriously,” Dr. Shaw says.
