Dr. Matthew Giangrante Builds Trust and Camaraderie with Patients

“I enjoy listening to my patients, and seeing how I can help them on a daily basis.”

Dr. Matthew Giangrante always loved science. That, and his passion for connecting with others, drove his decision to become a physician. He chose family medicine so that he had a chance to treat the full spectrum of patients and ailments.

He joined Vanguard Medical Group in 2013, a primary care practice that he says is “poised for growth without losing its focus on what’s important.” “We may be getting bigger, but quality patient care is still number one,” he says. “Patients may not even realize the depth and breadth of the practice because they still receive the kind of personalized attention that they did when we started.”

However, having access to an ever-increasing scope of services is important. Notes Dr. Giangrante, “We’re a very busy society, and when patients can get everything accomplished at one practice, from vaccines to phlebotomy, that makes it easier for them. Patients also have a level of trust when they’re getting these services done by their own doctor’s office.”

Dr. Giangrante practices the full scope of family medicine at Vanguard and has special interests in sports medicine and minor dermatologic procedures. He also has a focus on preventive care. “We handle everything from physicals to bloodwork, nutrition, weight loss strategies, vaccines for children and adults, and strategies for healthier lifestyles. When there are underlying medical issues, we help patients reduce their risk, using evidence-based research to support our recommendations.”

His easy-going, gentle nature and unique sense of humor help his patients, friends and colleagues feel comfortable around him. His patients frequently tell him that he is easy to talk to, addresses their concerns and makes them feel comfortable. Recently, Dr. Giangrante took home “New Jersey’s Favorite Kids’ Docs” honors, being listed in New Jersey Family magazine as one of the best in the business.

When he’s not working, Dr. Giangrante is an active volunteer and enjoys spending his free time with his wife and three children in his hometown of Union. He also enjoys golfing, boating and spending time at the Shore.

Dr. G was extremely good with this 81 year old lady! His patience and genuine care and concern were very obvious as I pulled out my long list of questions and observations since my last visit. My husband and I know he cares about us!!

Dr. Giangrante was great as he always is. He takes his time, gives clear, understandable explanations. This is particularly important where there are options. He always gives the pros and cons of each and entertains every question. I always feel he cares about me and my health at a very personal level. He also creates an environment where I feel like I can talk to him about EVERYTHING.

I had been a patient of Dr. Eidus for 11 years. This was the first time I met Dr. Giangante. I have to admit that I was a little nervous, but although his style is very different I was pleased.

Oct 01, 2018

*Dr. G. is the best!

Sep 21, 2018

I am very lucky to be treated by such professionals so close to home.

Sep 11, 2018

I love doctor G and doctor W. that is why we keep coming even though I have to wait more than an hour to see them

Sep 11, 2018

Dr. Giagrante takes his time to hear the patient's concerns and works with him/her toward a solution.

Sep 11, 2018

After moving to New Jersey and not knowing what to expect I could not be happier to have found Dr. Giangrante!

Sep 11, 2018

Except for the doctor's review of my blood work results, the doctor did not comment on my overall health status. I had to bring up several prior personal concerns, e.g. light-headedness, blood pressure, recent chest congestion. Then the doctor gave me full and considered comments and advice.

Aug 31, 2018

by far, one of the best pediatricians that I've experienced. I like him, my daughter loves him. great experience

Aug 28, 2018

In less than a year of having *Dr. Giangrante as my primary care physician I can safely say i would recommend him to anyone looking for a new doctor.
