Dr. Tom Ziering is a Graduate of Rutgers University Medical School in Newark and completed his Residency at RWJ/Somerset Medical Center in 1990 where he was honored as the Top Resident Educator. He has practiced traditional family medicine for more than 30 years, having had the unique privilege and perspective of treating ALL patients and families regardless of gender identity, sexual identity or medical issue. He has delivered more than 150 newborns in his career and many of the children he has cared for now bringing their children and families to him.
Always interested in education, Dr.Z was the former Medical Director of LGBTIQ Services for a Private Medical Corporation from 2015-2017, was part of the initial clinical trials as a Clinical Researcher for HIV illness during the HIV crisis in 1992. He is now one of the only Private Practices to treat and teach PREP, PEP and HIV Care as well as hormone therapy for Men, Woman and Trans Patients. He lectures Nationally and Statewide and has been integral in teaching Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Medical Students, Residents, Physicians and Faculty at many of New Jersey’s various programs. Most recently he was a speaker at the New Jersey Academy of Family Medicine in the first lecture on LGBTIQ2 Medicine for Physicians in Practice.
Dr. Ziering, whose patients often call him Tom, has had the privilege of electives in England (Oncology), Miami (Dermatology) and Dallas, Tx (Cardiology). He has been honored with over 40 Top Physician Awards including “Top Doctors”, “Most Compassionate Physician”, in New Jersey Magazine, Inside New Jersey Magazine, New York Magazine, Ladies Home Journal, US News and World Report and most recently listed in “Top Physician in Women’s Health Care.” Lacking an Independent Family Practice Department at Morristown Medical Center, he developed and established one in 1994 and Chaired the Department for 6 years.
Having been in Medical Education, Medical Administration, Concierge Medicine and Corporate Medicine, Dr. Ziering has found his passion as a healer to be most effective in Private Practice. By not limiting patient visits to 5-10 minutes, he has found the most comfortable and most involved method of practice with a 1/2 hr to one-hour visit depending upon health issues. In this manner, multiple medical issues and mental health issues can be addressed often in one visit. Furthermore, the ‘exam rooms’ are set up more like small living rooms with home furnishings, aroma therapy, sound soothers and artwork conducive to a calm and relaxed discussion.
Dr. Ziering has picked his staff individually and carefully to develop a welcoming, knowledgeable and efficient team approach. All his staff have previously worked in both the private and corporate sector of medicine and have chosen to be part of his vision of focused and individualized patient care.
