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.

I really liked Dr Giangrante. He was very friendly and REALLY listened to me about my concerns. He didn't rush through the exam, making me feel like he did a thorough job and didn't miss something. He explained why the issue was not what I was afraid it might be and explained what it most likely was and why he thought so. I was told how to treat the pain and to come back if it got worse. I like it when doctors explain things, tell me why they think this or that and treat me like their partner in my health care. Kudos to Dr. Giangrante.

care provider knew my background. listened carefully to my concerns. was supportive, friendly and open. complete confidence in diagnosis and treatment.

Jun 21, 2017

He was very competent and efficient. I really enjoyed my experience at this visit. The only thing I wish had been different was for the doctor to get a better grasp of the issue i am having. If the issue continues I plan to request a follow up visit as I feel that Dr Giangrante will be able to address the problem.

I appreciate the care I received, however, because of the blood work issue, I feel like there is a lot that Vanguard "won't do" to assist their patients outside of a regular office visit (or pertaining to one)

Jun 14, 2017

Dr. Giangrante shows a lot of concern and care for patients. He puts you at ease, clearly explains things, has a wonderful bed-side manner. He is a really good doctor.

haven't seen a doctor in years but wanted to check on my blood pressure; Dr. G showed real interest and care; quite honestly I was shocked. another Dr was recommended to me but the long wait on phone to get an appt and the inconvenient times led me to cancel that Dr. thank goodness I found Dr. G and happy with my choice. will see him in follow up visit in 6 weeks.

Jun 11, 2017

Funny enough, a coworker asked me who my doctor was, because he was impressed I got a same-day appointment that only caused me to miss minimal work. I told him about your practice, so he may be interested in coming soon.
