Matriarch, Mother and Mentor
BY DEIRDRE FLANAGAN WARD
Our very own Dr. Raja Barakat was recently interviewed by The Journal Magazine for a special Neighbor to Neighbor article. The interview reveals Dr. Barakat’s background and what prompted her to go into the field of pediatrics as well as what she thinks is the best part of her job.
She also answers some fun questions about what she likes to do outside of work.
Most importantly, Dr. Barakat reveals her greatest achievement – her 4 sons – of course. Additionally, she discusses how her professional life influenced her family life.
This special Mother’s Day edition of The Journal Magazine culminated with quotes from each of Dr. Barakat’s sons.
The full article below appears on page 56 of the May 2019 Journal Magazine Holmdel Edition.
Dr. Barakat created a successful pediatric practice in Holmdel in Monmouth County that provides comprehensive pediatric and adolescent health care from the birth of the child to 18 years of age including:
School & Sports Physicals
Sleep Recommendations & more.
A second pediatrics office was opened in Old Bridge to accommodate the needs of the children in Middlesex County.
