Comprehensive Patient-Centered Primary Care

Keeping You and Those Who Matter to You Healthy
Vanguard Medical Group is a growing regional primary care practice with over a quarter century of experience caring for 45,000 plus adults and children in Central and Northern New Jersey. This leading, patient-centered family practice is completely designed around taking care of YOU. We get to know you and/or your entire family. We take the time to treat each person as an individual. We help you stay healthy at any age.

Unwavering Dedication to Caring for You
At Vanguard, we run a family practice. But we don't just treat colds and minor injuries. In fact, you might be surprised at the scope of our services, which ranges from treating acute illness like flu and pneumonia, to the management of many chronic diseases like diabetes, to procedures including biopsies of abnormal skin lesions and stitches for skin lacerations.
You could go to a specialist and pay a higher fee. Or you can get the same quality care from a highly trained family physician at Vanguard. Take a look at our services. Come to us first. When necessary, we can refer you to a specialist for services not in our comprehensive portfolio.
