Jersey Coast Family Medicine is excited to share upcoming changes in our office.

Christopher Bader, DO will be joining our practice as of May 1, 2018. 

Dr. Bader, a Board-Certified Family Physician, received his medical degree from Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine and has worked as a hospitalist for 7 years.  Dr. Bader will lead our in-patient care team.  Along with residents under his supervision, Dr. Bader will care for our patients admitted to Ocean Medical Center.  

We are also excited to announce our involvement in 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. 

The resident physicians selected for the inaugural class of the Residency Program are: Nicole Babushkin, MD; Erica DeClemente, MD; Brittney Grella, MD; Meha Halari, MD; Brendan Keys, MD; John Jeffrey Mosko, DO; Mihir Patel, MD; Charles Rutkowski, MD.

Beginning in July two of the selected 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. Kenneth Kronhaus and Dr. Kelly Ussery-Kronhaus who serves as the Program Director for the Family Residency Program at Ocean Medical Center.

The residents are eager to be a part of the team and our office is honored to help educate the Family Physicians of tomorrow.

More information for traditional Medicare (Part A and Part B) beneficiaries:


To help us take better care of you, Medicare will start sharing some of your
personal health information with us. This will help provide us with a more
complete picture of your health and be better able to coordinate your care.

Your Medicare benefits aren’t changing. You still have the right to use or visit any

to recommend that you see particular doctors for your specific health needs, but
it’s always your choice which doctors you use or hospital you visit.
