Dr. Joseph T. Morandi

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe each patient should be provided with the same high level of personalized care that would be received if they had a doctor in their own family. This conviction has led me to establish a practice that always puts patients first. Bernards Family Practice has the same values as the neighborhood medical practices of my childhood in Brooklyn; where relationships and service were the highest priorities. These community values live on in my practice in Basking Ridge and are shared by my wife, Michele, who is also a physician.

My goal as your private doctor is to partner with you to create a personalized healthcare plan to effectively treat your current health problems and prevent new ones. We will work as a team to achieve your health goals and I will be there to assist you with making informed decisions towards achieving those goals. I want to be able to celebrate how well my patients are doing health-wise – it is rewarding as a physician.

Practicing good medicine requires spending quality time speaking with and examining the patient and ordering the most appropriate tests needed to help make a diagnosis in a timely manner. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I have more time to develop close relationships with my patients, carefully review records and perform comprehensive exams. The reality is that most diseases are curable, or at least manageable; it’s the age of detection and diagnosis that makes all of the difference.

Let’s work together to make a happy, healthy future your reality.
