Dr. Robert Eidus Puts the Patient First, Every Time

“Building ongoing relationships with patients and families is as important to excellent health care as having medical expertise.”

When Dr. Robert Eidus was deciding which field of medicine he should practice, he chose family medicine because he knew he would value, above all else, his relationships with patients.

It is this commitment to the doctor-patient relationship that personifies the attentive and comprehensive medical care provided by Vanguard Medical Group, the regional medical practice Dr. Eidus founded in 2012 with other accomplished family practitioners.

As president of Vanguard, Dr. Eidus ensures that patients and their families are, and will remain, at the center of Vanguard’s entire practice. “My first statement to new patients is always: tell me about yourself,” he says. “I focus on the patient’s lifestyle and lifestyle changes, from sleep to exercise to smoking to how happy a person is. Since 80 percent of all illnesses are related to lifestyle, helping patients make healthier choices can often give them 10 to 15 extra years of healthy life.”

As Dr. Eidus recognizes, the evidence is undeniable that long-lasting doctor-patient relationships are associated with better health outcomes. Vanguard is innovative in its use of technology to assist effective communication with patients, but as Dr. Eidus points out, “The technology complements our practice and is not used in place of old-fashioned doctoring.” Under his guidance, Vanguard’s approach is to bring in a comprehensive team to effectively address patient problems.

Dr. Eidus is committed to lifelong learning. He is currently enrolled in a fellowship in integrative medicine at the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine under the auspices of Andrew Weil, MD. “Traditional Western medicine doesn’t have all the solutions for many of my patients,” Dr. Eidus says.

Dr. Eidus has received numerous awards, accolades and appointments for his dedication and contributions to the field of family medicine, including serving as president of the New Jersey Academy of Family Physicians and receiving the New Jersey Academy of Family Physicians Lifetime Achievement Award. He currently chairs the American Academy of Family Physicians Commission on Practice and Quality. In addition to serving as president of Vanguard, Dr. Eidus is the medical director of Vanguard’s Cranford and Jersey City offices.

When he’s not working, Dr. Eidus enjoys photography, playing golf and listening to jazz. To learn more about Dr. Eidus’s role as President of Vanguard, click here.
