Dr. Naveen Mehrotra, a board certified pediatrician in private practice and an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Pediatrics at Rutgers – Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and the Rutgers School of Public Health, is the founder and medical director of My Whole Child Pediatrics, a multi-physician multi-location pediatric practice serving the needs of the communities since 2000. Dr. Mehrotra has a special interest in child development and early Intervention and believes that there is nothing more important than the growth and well-being of children as the health of the child is the center of family dynamics. His practice philosophy utilizes his interest in complementary and alternative medicine to bring an integrated approach to improving a child's health.
Practicing in Central New Jersey, Dr. Mehrotra is dedicated to improving the health of all but especially those who have recently immigrated to this country.

His desire to help others, took him across the world to Delhi, India where he has created the My Whole Child Center for Special Needs to educate the locals about child development and serve the indigent population by providing free therapeutic services for their special needs child..
