After working as an employed physician early in her career, Dr. Noha Polack launched her own medical practice in 1999. Since then, she and her team at Progressive Pediatrics have been caring for pediatric patients and their families. Today, they have two offices, in Union City and Bayonne, NJ, where Dr. Polack aims to set a healthy foundation for patients to build a lifetime of wellness. We are talking about her passion for working with teens and pre-teens navigating challenging physical, emotional, and social issues like weight, and acknowledging that pediatrics is truly a team sport that involves partnering with families and other clinicians. We also dig into what it took to get her practice up and running, what has changed in the decades she has been providing care, and what it took to get through the height of the pandemic period.
