A Bittersweet Farewell to
our Friend
and Mentor…

In 1978, I was fortunate enough to join Drs. Silverman, Atkin, Katz and Levin.  They helped me learn what it meant to be a pediatrician.  Over the last 36 years, I have had the pleasure of taking care of many wonderful families. It has been a true joy watching so many great children grow up and mature into healthy adults.  So I will, this July, feel more than a little sadness when I retire from the practice of Pediatrics.  I know that my current partners Doctors Tesoro, Rose, Zollner, Pulver and our new associate, Dr. Toohey, will take excellent care of your children.  I feel better leaving your children's health in their capable hands.  I look forward to hearing about what great persons your children have become.

... and A Warm Welcome to Dr. Toohey!

Dr. Toohey grew up in Monmouth County, New Jersey. After primary and secondary education in the Catholic school system, he received undergraduate degrees in Biological Sciences and English from Rutgers University. He attended New Jersey Medical School and completed his Pediatric Residency at K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital at the Jersey shore. He is board certified in Pediatrics and is a member of the AAP Council on Media and Communications.

Dr. Toohey maintains an active interest in patient education, authoring hundreds of articles on common pediatric topics and providing quick references for parents in mobile format. Dr. Toohey is married with three small children. He and his wife enjoy spending time with their children, getting outside and staying active.
