Garden State Pediatrics

Helping your children grow...

Welcome to Garden State Pediatrics, located at 217 Old Hook Road, Westwood, NJ, at Pascack Medical Center.

We care for patients from birth through early adulthood. Our mission is to not just alleviate discomfort and illness but to help your children grow in health and to reach their full potential.

At Garden State Pediatrics, we practice preventive medicine. This means, we educate our patients and their parents on safety, prevention of infectious illnesses, and understanding of normal development and childhood milestones.

Because many children have anxiety about going to the doctor, we create a welcoming environment and a scheduling system that never keeps you waiting long. By combining the latest technology with old fashioned care, we give our patients the best possible medical treatment.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Dr. Dolores Buli is personally familiar with the local school systems, culture, and social pressures with which your children are exposed .

After graduating cum laude from Drew University in Madison in 1991 with a major in psychology and biology, Dr. Buli acquired her medical education at UMDNJ (now Rutgers Medical School) in Newark, graduating in 1995.  She stayed at UMDNJ for her Pediatric and Adolescent Residency.  These three years were spent rotating through many local hospitals including, University Hospital, Children's Hospital, Beth Isreal, St Michael's, Morristown, Children's Specialized, St Barnabas, and Hackensack.  She graduated residency in 1998 then worked as an inpatient Pediatric Hospitalist at St Barnabas Hospital in Livingston, where she covered the busy pediatric floor and pediatric ER.  She then went to work for a large group practice in northern NJ for several years.  In an effort to create a more patient friendly office, Garden State Pediatrics was opened in 2005 by Drs. Buli and Scanlon.  Since Dr. Scanlon moved out of state, Dr. Buli has been managing the practice solo.  She has had inpatient privileges at The Valley Hospital for over 15 years.  

When not at work, Dr Buli enjoys spending all of her time with her two children and large extended family.  Between sports activities, college visits, and driving lessons, she is kept very busy by her family!
