Dr. Robert Giombetti began practicing Pediatrics in Delmar in a home/office building on Groesbeck Place in 1969. For many years he practiced as a Solo Practitioner. His vision was to create a close knit, caring and friendly environment where he treated the illnesses of the child but also provided support and expertise in whole family development. In 1999 his son, Dr. Todd Giombetti and daughter in law, Dr. Kathleen Brady joined the practice and continued to focus on developmental and emotional milestones.
Dr. Catherine Keating joined our practice part time when Dr. Bob retired in 2013. Dr. Mantello joined as a full time practitioner in 2016. We plan to keep our practice this small size, we do not have or plan to have the physical room to expand further. Furthermore, we do not want to. We feel that we know our patients and their families intimately. Knowing and understanding our patients this well allows us to practice medicine supportively and judiciously.
Our practice continues to keep the home town feel even in the age of big data and the pressures to move towards a big company model. We will continue to get to know our patients as individuals and their families as a unit. We truly enjoy watching our families grow. It has been an honor to see the children and grandchildren of former patients. We intend to keep this small town, close knit approach and look forward to treating your family.
