Julie Mathew Strives to Be a Good Listener

“One of the most important jobs of a primary care professional is to stop and listen.”

Julie Mathew chose the health care field because she can make a difference in a life. “What attracted me to being a primary care physician assistant, and what keeps me going, is that I’m helping my patients strive to have a healthy life,” says Julie. “My day is filled with seeing patients, ordering labs and diagnosing patients with conditions ranging from a simple cold to diabetes, stroke or chest pains. I pay attention to everything they say, which helps me gauge how they are doing or what they need. It is so satisfying when a patient’s health improves because they listened and followed my guidance.”

Julie was attracted specifically to family medicine because every day provides something different. “There are days when my patients run the gamut from pediatrics to geriatrics, and their needs range from a wellness visit to relieving a common cold to managing hypertension or diabetes. I thrive on the variety family medicine offers, the opportunity to build strong relationships and the fulfillment I get from helping improve the health of another person.”

She joined Vanguard in 2011 as a physician assistant and, under the guidance of a medical doctor, provides a variety of services to patients, including annual physicals, wellness checkups, diagnoses, medication management, blood pressure screenings, inoculations and vaccinations. Prior to Vanguard, Julie worked in neurosurgery at UMDNJ.

Julie is fluent in Malayalam, a South Indian dialect, which has been helpful in the office, especially when communicating with elderly patients who speak English as a second language. “In any language, people want to be understood and we need to listen.” When she is not seeing patients, she keeps herself busy as a mother of two children and, in her spare time, loves to travel.

I wish there were more providers like her she really loves her practice. I as her patient have a more understanding of my condition when I am able to Schedule an appointment with her. She definitely cares about her patients of all ages.

I didn't receive any prescription medications or recommendations on over the counter products to use to ease my pain and give me any comfort while the virus passed. it's unreasonable to think anyone with three kids can "rest" and get better.

the care provider had wonderful listening and bedside manner/ skills. she took the time needed to be with me without having any feeling of unconcern or being rushed.

Jul 12, 2017

I would highly recommend Julie Matthew as a care provider to others. She is kind and knowledgeable. She is comforting and easy to talk to for a patient at any age. She is never in a rush to push me out and answers all of my questions. I am a mom with 4 children between the ages of 14 and 26, and each one of them feel comfortable with her. In the past with any business, many of the times you feel like just a number, no connection, no eye contact or smile, and treated almost as if you are a bother to them. Julie is an asset to Vangard Medical Group and I/we are very thankful that she is working here.

Julie was great. Very accommodating with Kristina. She had her Olaf doll with her. Staff did check up on Olaf to lessen Kristina's anxiety.
