Jersey Coast Family Medicine's mission is to provide Caring and Compassionate Family Medical Care with an emphasis on prevention and improving the overall health of our patients. We have created a practice that we believe in and choose for our own family members.
We are a full-service family practice of dedicated, experienced physicians who believe in working with our patients to maintain and improve their health. We work together to serve your entire family for all of your medical needs in all stages of life. Our physicians believe in providing comprehensive health care services to our patients in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. We also believe in educating our patients as we work with them to achieve the best physical state possible.
Each physician is Board Certified and comes to our practice with years of experience in their area of specialty.
All of our physicians are affiliated with Ocean Medical Center in Brick, NJ. They are also teaching faculty for The Family Medicine Residency at Ocean Medical Center. A Family Medicine Residency Program serves to teach new physicians the art of Family Medicine. Hackensack Meridian Health has established an innovative training program at Ocean Medical Center using community-based Family Practice offices to train residents over a three-year period. Eight residents per year are selected from a national pool and distributed between four Family Medicine practices in Ocean County. Jersey Coast Family Medicine is honored to be a core training center for the Ocean Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program.
Beginning in July each year residents will be assigned to our office to complete their three-year residency. These physicians will establish their own panel of patients and will assist in the care of our existing patients under the guidance and supervision of Dr. Kelly Ussery-Kronhaus who serves as the Program Director for the Family Residency Program at Ocean Medical Center and Dr. Kenneth Kronhaus core faculty and site director.
