Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Pediatric Rheumatology Diagnostic & Treatment Options

The Division of Pediatric Rheumatology Program provides optimal diagnostic and therapeutic care to children and adolescents with pediatric rheumatic diseases, such as:

To diagnose these conditions, we use immunological and genetic laboratory tests, as well as advanced radiological imaging reviewed by a pediatric or musculoskeletal radiologist. Physician services are provided through Atlantic Medical Group and are on staff at Goryeb Children’s Hospital.

Treatment for pediatric rheumatic diseases may include anti-inflammatory medications. We give full consideration to each child’s psychological and social health, and educate both patient and parent on medication administration, sun protection and other tips to maintain quality of life.

Patients may also be referred to Atlantic Rehabilitation Institute, Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center’s Rehabilitation Services Department for physical and occupational therapy or to Atlantic Integrative Medicine for relaxation techniques, guided imagery, therapeutic touch, acupressure and reflexology.
