About Us

As a board certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist with over 35 years of experience, Dr. Rudominer has extensive experience treating patients with a wide range of psychiatric disorders. He has been listed as one of the best psychiatrists in the USA and Canada specializing in the treatment of people with Mood Disorders on a leading depression website. Dr. Rudominer has been honored with the 2012 Patients' Choice Award. Among the nation's 870,000 active physicians and dentists, just five percent qualify for the award, based on patient feedback. Doctors are rated on-line by patients on various components of care, including accuracy of diagnoses, the amount of time spent with the doctor, and the doctor's bedside manner and follow-up care. Many patients have a misconception that psychiatrists are trained just to treat problems with medication alone. Although in some cases that might be true, Dr. Rudominer’s training gives him the expertise to treat the "whole patient" with psychotherapy and medication if needed. Dr. Rudominer believes that, if possible, it is always best for the patient and family to deal with only one clinician rather than deal with a psychiatrist just for medication and a separate psychologist or social worker for counseling. He is one of the few psychiatrists in New Jersey who has a full-time psychotherapy practice in addition to seeing patients for medication treatment. Dr. Rudominer also welcomes referrals from other psychologists and psychiatric social workers for medication management alone and will work closely with them to help achieve patient goals. Unlike many psychiatrists in New Jersey where you often have to wait weeks to months to schedule an appointment, Dr. Rudominer will almost always see you within one to two days if there is an emergency. His “hands on” approach, including his availability to speak to patients by phone whenever they are in need, even on weekends, is unusual for psychiatrists. He also encourages patients or their family members to email him with important information. In addition Dr. Rudominer has expertise in rendering second opinions regarding diagnoses and treatment as well as treating the "difficult patient". And because of his medical training, he may be able to diagnose an underlying medical condition which may have gone undetected by a non-medical professional. Treatment with Howard S. Rudominer, MD, and his associates Kathleen Pendergast, APN and Katherine Jackman,APN is geared toward helping individuals, and families “open the door” back into themselves and turn their life in the right direction.
