Jane E. Neuman, MD, FACP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Since the age of seven, my dream was to become a doctor. Although, I did not know any female physicians growing up, I knew I had a passion for helping people. I was the kid who tried to stop the bullies from harassing other children, as I felt the need to protect them. Caring and hard work was instilled in me at a young age by my parents. They came to an unknown country having lost everything in war torn Europe with a pioneer spirit, ready to roll up their sleeves and work hard in order to raise their children in a free country.

In college, I realized my love for science. My passion for the material, as well as my desire to help others, convinced me that becoming a doctor was my calling. My greatest lament is when I was away at medical school, my father became very ill and I learned the importance of a primary care physician first hand. Our family doctor had retired, and my father did not have a primary care doctor to coordinate his care -someone in charge. He had many specialists who did not appear to communicate well with each other. Sadly, he did not survive. To this day, I still wonder if he had a good, caring internist, the outcome may have been different. What was missing is in my father’s case is what motivates me to be the best possible internal medicine physician I can be. I never want a patient or patients' family members to feel alone or helpless.

I chose internal medicine because I found it to be the most challenging. I love being a detective trying to figure out what is wrong with a patient. This is where internists thrive. We are the front line of medicine - your most important doctor. If you can imagine an old fashioned carriage wheel, we are the center of the wheel and the consultants are the spokes. If a spoke breaks, you can continue driving on the wheel; however, if the center breaks the entire wheel collapses. As a primary care physician, it is my job to keep your wheels turning.

As an Internist you need curiosity, intellect, passion and most of all love for your patients. You can never give up until you have an answer. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, I will now be able to spend more time with my patients; getting to know them and their circumstances. This process involves discussions that are not always medical, but are just as important to their overall care. Medicine encompasses taking care of the whole person; body, mind and soul. It is all connected, one part affects the other. The changes in healthcare today have driven many to practice "factory medicine" which I have resisted. My goal is to give each patient the time they need and deserve. Sometimes you may just need a shoulder to cry on, and I will be here for you.

My personalized healthcare practice is located in Oakhurst, New Jersey and I am affiliated with Monmouth Medical Center.
