Practice Continues Growth and Expansion In the Northern Valley; New Location in Fort Lee Opening this Month
October 7, 2012; Harrington Park, NJ — This month The Park Medical Group is celebrating 20 years as a medical practice. The practice – one of the northern valley’s largest internal medicine groups – is still growing and expanding. This month they are adding three more physicians and a nurse practitioner to its staff and opening a new office in Fort Lee, NJ.
The Park Medical Group began in October 1992 when Dr. Stephen Brunnquell and his wife, Donna, a nurse practitioner, opened the practice in an old Victorian style home on Elm Street. Three years later, the second office in Tenafly opened its doors and in July 2000, a third location in Northvale. Dr. Brunnquell, who has been very active throughout the years in the Harrington Park community, was named President of the Medical Staff at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center (EHMC) in January. He was also named on of Bergen County’s Top Doctors last spring by (201) magazine. Other physicians at The Park Medical Group have been recognized for their outstanding medical service, as well. Last month, Dr. Mary Ann Schran was recognized by the Arnold P. Gold foundation for her humanistic, patient-centered approach to medicine.
“My wife and I moved to Harrington Park because we thought it was a wonderful town to raise a family. Turns out, we were right,” said Dr. Brunnquell. “We’ve raised our three children here and what began as a small, family-run practice on Elm Street has since seen tremendous growth. We are extremely proud of the entire Park Medical Group team and consider it an honor to treat our patients.”
This month a new office location at 1555 Center Street in Fort Lee, will be opening in conjunction with EHMC. In addition to the new location, the practice will add new physicians and nurses to the existing staff of 19 medical professionals. In January, the practice welcomed Dr. Julia Yu, a specialist in traditional and natural medicine, including acupuncture. In September, Dr. Disha Patel, who specializes in sleep disorders and sleep medicine, joined the group.
“The face of medicine is changing all the time,” said Dr. Brunnquell. “Our practice partners, Dr. Gerald Lee, Dr. Walter Klein, Dr. John Hwang and Dr. Peter Symington, focus on providing the most advanced medical treatments and services to all our patients while maintaining a friendly, welcoming, small practice environment. Just because we’re getting bigger doesn’t mean we lose sight of how important each and every one of our patients are.”
The Park Medical Group is a full-service medical practice that includes many sub-specialty areas of medicine, including natural medicine and wellness, physical therapy, gastroenterology, adolescent medicine, women’s health and sleep medicine. The physicians at the Park Medical Group are also the medical directors at The Buckingham at Norwood and CareOne at Dunroven in Cresskill. They also provide medical care for residents of The Jewish Home in Rockliegh, NJ.
