NJPA Physicians Honored as 2021 Top Doctors by New Jersey Monthly

New Jersey Perinatal Associates is proud to announce that three of our high-risk pregnancy specialists in NJ, Dr. Richard Miller, Dr. Leon Smith, and Dr. Edward Wolf, were named New Jersey Monthly Jersey Choice Top Doctors in the November issue of the magazine! This honor was based on an independent survey commissioned by a local research firm, which was mailed to all New Jersey-based doctors who have been licensed by the state for at least five years. Once all eligible votes were tallied, doctors with sufficient votes were placed on a preliminary list. The list was then submitted for professional review to an advisory board chosen from among the top performers in last year’s survey. Congratulations to Dr. Miller, Dr. Smith, and Dr. Wolf for this recognition! Learn more about our honorees and the care they provide at NJPA below.

Dr. Richard C. Miller, MD, FACOG

Dr. Miller began his career in the military, which he believes carried him to where he is today. His interest in internal medicine evolved into an interest in Obstetrics and Gynecology because he felt that “the thought of being able to treat the fetus as my patient was completely enthralling and interesting.” He says that what he likes best about being a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist is the interactions he has with his patients, including talking to them, answering their questions, and learning from each other along the way. Dr. Miller sees patients at our Livingston, Belleville, and Westfield offices, and this is his 14th year being honored as a Top Doctor. 

Dr. Leon G. Smith Jr., MD, FACOG

Dr. Smith has received several awards over the years, and this is his 16th year being honored as a Top Doctor by New Jersey Monthly. His research interests include prenatal diagnosis and obstetrical infections. Along with his experience working with patients, Dr. Smith has extensive experience contributing to peer-reviewed journal articles and presenting lectures on all manner of topics in his field. Topics he has covered include HIV in pregnancy, multiple gestations, and preconception and prenatal counseling. Patients can meet with Dr. Smith at our offices in Livingston, Belleville, Warren, Westfield, and Teaneck, NJ.

Dr. Edward J. Wolf, MD, FACOG

Dr. Wolf was drawn to Maternal-Fetal Medicine because of the challenge of helping those in difficult medical situations. He feels honored to be invited into his patients’ lives in a time that can be both exhilarating and challenging. He says that “the chance to go along with them for that journey is the thing that matters most to me.” Dr. Wolf’s role at NJPA includes both patient care and education, and he is committed to giving each patient his undivided attention to ensure that all of their needs are met. This is Dr. Wolf’s 3rd time being honored as a Jersey Choice Top Doctor. Patients can meet with him at any of our five office locations in NJ.
