It’s been 18 months since Dr. Jill Garripoli opened her new office in Nutley, NJ.  With over sixty “5 star” reviews on Google and Facebook, it’s no wonder why the award-winning pediatrician and her team at Healthy Kids Pediatrics is all smiles.

We asked Dr. Jill to reflect on this past year and a half and she said,

“I am so proud of the HKP team for working together to make our new office a true medical home where children and their families can come for superb care. We have refined our work flow, we are offering more services than ever, and we strive each day to give our patients a comprehensive healthcare experience!”

We also checked in with Peter “P.J.” Pimpinelli, PA-C, Healthy Kids’ rock star Physician Assistant, and he shared the same enthusiasm.

“I have loved everything about this office before I even took a step inside. The office is beautiful, the staff here is wonderful, and most importantly we have the BEST patients ever!”

We look forward to serving you and your family for many years to come and continuing to provide your children with exceptional pediatric care.


3 Things Dr. Jill Wants New Parents To Know During The First Year

Dr. Jill Garripoli- Owner of Healthy Kids Pediatrics
Your first year as parents will be quite an adventure!   You’ll see your child laugh, cry, poop, pee, and plenty of other things that will make you go “awwww,  that’s so cute!!!” and “ewww, that’s so gross!!!”  🙂
In an effort to give you a little peace of mind when you inevitably get nervous after trying to consult Dr. Google, here are 3 things that Dr. Jill wants you to know for year #1.
1) Fevers are our friend! Don’t be afraid of a fever, but ask enough questions to get comfortable.
2) Children get 7-8 common viral upper respiratory colds in the first year which means they can be sick with a runny nose and cough with fever on and off for the first year of their lives. Viral infections don’t require antibiotics.
3) All babies in the first 4 months are bound to have gas and some difficulty with pooping here and there. Not all stomach issues require medication, but all do require time and patience. 
Best wishes on your journey.  We wish you all of the health and happiness that life has to offer!
