Advocare Mid-Jersey Pediatrics

About Us

Advocare Mid-Jersey Pediatrics, formerly Mid-Jersey Pediatrics & East Brunswick Pediatrics, was founded in 1974 upon the principle of providing excellent care to children, adolescents and their families. Over forty years later that principle has not changed.

The practice joined the Advocare network in 2016. Despite being a large practice, it is our goal to maintain a small office environment. Parents may schedule their child’s routine appointments with the provider of their choice. They may also request a specific provider for sick visits. The provider given is dependent upon schedule availability and parental convenience. We do our very best to accommodate each family.
