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.

The dedicated team of physicians has continued to see patients throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The practice invested in a state-of-the-art UV-C light to sanitize both surfaces and the air between appointments, and is offering telemedicine appointments and drive-through flu shot clinics.

A Patient-Centered Medical Home

Health care consumer and peer resources have recognized Touchpoint as one of NJ’s top pediatric practices. The practice has been reaccredited for the third time by the NCQA for recognition as a patient-centered medical home—including 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 Family “Favorite Kids’ Doc” since the program’s inception, the doctors are on staff 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. The office’s friendly, caring front desk staff makes families feel at home.

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