OVERVIEW

Founder of Hackensack Pediatrics with more than 30 years of pediatric experience. Dr. Tantawi graduated top of her class from Cairo University School of Medicine; considered one of the most prestigious universities in the middle east. She received her M.D. degree at age 23. She completed one year of internship at Frankford Hospital in Philadelphia with experience in Pediatrics, Ob/Gyn, Internal Medicine, and Surgery. She then went on to complete her pediatric residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey with the honor of being offered the Chief Resident position in only her 3rd year. Dr. Tantawi went on to serve as the Chief of out-patient pediatrics at Hackensack University Medical Center taking the honor of being the first full-time female pediatrician ever hired by the hospital. After seven years of devoted service, setting up the standard of care to grow to what it is now, she then started her own private practice in 1985 and going strong ever since. She enjoys teaching medical students and residents. Currently holds an academic appointment as clinical assistant professor at UMDNJ and as an instructor at New York Medical College. Married with two children, Mohamed (Dr. Mo) and Shirley (a special education teacher), whom she has great pride in. She enjoys her four lovely grandchildren (Dr. Mo's twins and Shirley's two boys). Loves reading, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. "I love taking care of my patients and I feel privileged to be a part of their lives from infancy through the college years. I strongly believe that medicine is not just a science but an art and finding the balance between the two makes a physician exceptional." - Dr. Tantawi
