About Mitchel B. Alpert
As founder of the largest pediatric cardiology group in Monmouth and Ocean counties, Dr. Mitchel Alpert has dedicated his life to helping children. The team, which also includes Dr. Vincent R. Zales, Dr. Elsa I. Castro, Dr. Maria Angela Umali and Dr. Stephanie E. Chin provides cutting-edge pediatric cardiac care in a warm, welcoming environment for patients ranging in age from fetus to late adolescence. The practice is one of few in New Jersey to receive the prestigious certification in pediatric echocardiography from the Intersociety Accreditation Commission, a national accrediting body.
The doctors accept essentially every type of insurance, and strive to see patients right away. “We try to accommodate anyone who needs to come here, regardless of the insurance plan they have,” Dr. Alpert says. “Treating our patients and watching them get better is the biggest success I can imagine.”
A fellow of both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Cardiology, Dr. Alpert is a six-time New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor. He serves as director of pediatric cardiology at Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, and has also won multiple teaching awards through the years from the pediatric residents at the medical center’s K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital.
