Dr. Sally Mravcak Focuses on Family, Lifestyle and Relationships for Wellness and Prevention

“You’re not just looking at disease, but at family and social interactions and lifestyle. We ask the pivotal questions. Who’s cooking at home? How is the stress level? How much exercise are you getting? Do you have social relationships? All of these contribute to a patient’s well-being.”

When your mother is a registered nurse, you get an early glimpse into what it’s like to help others. That’s what happened with Dr. Sally Mravcak. “Growing up, we always had people in the neighborhood coming to the house, asking for my mom’s help or advice,” she says. “That was my inspiration for going into health care.

She chose family medicine because she enjoyed every rotation during medical training, from pediatrics to women’s health to geriatrics. “I didn’t want to give any of it up,” she says. “I like being able to treat an entire family, from the children to their parents, grandparents and great grandparents.”

Dr. Mravcak began her career working in a federally qualified health center, spending eight years caring for uninsured and underinsured people in New Jersey. “I like to advocate for my patients,” she says. “Every patient deserves excellent care offered with dignity and respect.” Prior to joining Vanguard, Dr. Mravcak also practiced full time in a women’s health center, providing comprehensive primary care, office gynecology and acupuncture. In addition to family medicine, she is board-certified in integrative medicine and medical acupuncture, and believes in evidence-based, whole-person care that takes into account the role of body, mind and science in creating wellness. She offers medical acupuncture in the Jersey City office of Vanguard. These treatments may be done alone or in concert with traditional medical practices to prevent and treat medical problems and promote emotional and physical wellness.

“Vanguard is always on the cutting edge of family medicine, as our name suggests,” notes Dr. Mravcak. “We’re pushing the ball forward in medicine, and in technology, as far as it can go. We’re also very open and accepting of patients of all backgrounds. We see patients of all ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations and gender identities, and they each feel comfortable here.”

When she’s not in the office in Jersey City, you might find Dr. Mravcak on a biking trail, taking in some live music or spending the day at the beach with her spouse and two daughters.

Dr. Marvcak is the best

Jan 22, 2018

I have never felt more comfortable having an open conversation about my health concerns than I did with Dr. Mravcak. She listened to my needs, understood them (and asked followup questions if needed), and offered several solutions for managing each of my health concerns. She went above and beyond in offering guidance and management tips for numerous areas of my life that have an impact on my physical and mental health. Above all, Dr. Mravcak treated me with dignity, patience, and kindness: something which I haven't always experienced as an LGBT person in the healthcare system. Thank you, Dr. Mravcak.

*Dr. M. was recommended to me and I brag about her!

Dec 21, 2017

Sally came across as a genuinely interested care provider. She invested time in understanding my history and conditions as well as in knowing the options I am most comfortable with. My TSH tests were missed in the initial battery and Sally ensured that they would run it with the earlier sample itself. That was quite thoughtful and left a great impression on me. I will definitely recommend her to all my friends who may be looking for one.

She always takes the time to explain everything to me and never dismisses any of my concern. Her attention to details makes me confident in her quality of care and I can tell she takes preventative care very seriously. I've recommend her to everyone I know!
