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. Touchpoint is an independent, physician-only practice.

A Patient-Centered Medical Home

Healthcare consumer and peer resources have recognized Touchpoint as one of NJ’s top pediatric practices. The practice has been reaccredited again 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 practice’s doctors are on staff at Morristown, Overlook and St. Barnabas medical centers.

Meeting Children’s Medical and Non-Medical Needs

Many physicians entrust the care of their children to Dr. Shaw and her colleagues, who coordinate care with specialists and follow up with patients. The office’s friendly, caring front desk staff makes families feel at home. The practice also provides telemedicine appointments and drive-through flu shot clinics.

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.

Touchpoint is actively seeking experienced physicians to expand their practice and enhance appointment availability. “We’re so appreciative of our patient following and their loyalty to our practice,” Dr. Shaw says. “We take our obligation to our existing patients very seriously.”
