Dear Family,

We continue seeing patients in the office as well as via telehealth. We want to take this opportunity to share with you the changes we have made so that when you come to the office you have an idea of what to expect. For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You may be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • We require that everyone coming into the building wear a mask and keep 6 feet distance.
  • We ask only one parent to accompany the child.
  • You will remain in your car until the time you are called to be processed by the medical assistant and then placed in the exam room to see the provider.

Caring health solutions for your precious child.

Congratulations on your beautiful family! Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to provide care for your child's wellness. At Children of Joy Pediatrics we care about your child’s health and well-being.

For your convenience, we have two offices conveniently located in Hackensack, NJ, to attend your child's needs. Should you have an emergency while our offices are closed, our answering service is always available to connect you with a provider. For non-emergencies, please, leave a message and someone will contact you in the morning to provide medical attention. For appointments, please contact our offices directly.

A Vision of Joy for your Family.

We do our best to provide more natural health options to help parents raise a more happy and vibrant child. Please be assured that every doctor is kind, considerate, compassionate, and loving. If your family happens to fall in love with one of our doctors, at your request we will try our best to accommodate you to see them for the rest of your child’s visits.

Schedule a visit

When arriving at the office one of our friendly staff members will welcome and check you in. Then a trained medical assistant will prepare you and your child to see one of our providers. If he/she ever needs an emergency treatment the medical assistant will take the necessary steps to make your child feel safe and comfortable.

Once you are in the room, the doctor will examine your child and will provide the best medical care according to your child’s own individual needs. We look forward to making you a part of our practice, family, culture, and community, while providing more natural health options for raising a happy and vibrant child.

What Patients Say About Us

five stars
My objective for this “Review” is to supersede all of my previously submitted “Reviews” in favor and acknowledgment of Children of Joy Pediatrics (“COJP”). By way of history, I’ am a proud Hispanic single father to my son who is, but not limited to, “multi-handicapped” and “ill.” For approximately the past five (5) years, Dr. Miranda and her valued and respected Team have provided my son with “unprecedented” genuine care, individual attention, and unique professionalism, which I believe has set a “new” standard within the medical industry. During these precious years, I have witnessed “COJP” learn and thrive from their relentless commitment to providing their patients and parents with “cutting edge” medical services and “one-on-one” attention. Regrettably, as an adult, my son will no longer be receiving his “special” medical care from, Dr. Miranda, nevertheless, “COJP’ shall forevermore remain a vital part of our family! In conclusion, we wish, Dr. Miranda and the “COJP” Team continued success and blessings. Moreover, I confidently and proudly recommend them to meet and exceed your medical needs! With warm regards and respect, Hector.

My two little boys had been seeing Dr. Miranda and her associates for a few years now, and I always love coming to the appointments. Dr. Miranda is very thorough, caring, and compassionate. She spends enough time with patients and parents, and gives good advice and correct diagnosis. Her staff is friendly, polite, and always willing to help. Office cannot be more beautiful. Thank you, Dr. Miranda!

I loved having my son seen here, Dr. Miranda and Dr. Soto both saw my LO. The place is busy because they are awesome. Office personal is courteous and they are all about helping. All you got to do is have your records in order and listen to their instructions. I know of all the great things they can offer for their patients. I think that people treat you the way you treat them, if you treat the personnel with respect, they will treat you with respect. Please be early to your apppoinment and be patient, no one would want the doctor to rush while your own kid's visit so do not expect the doctor to rush with other kids to see yours. Also please be aware that all doctors office deal with a whole lot with insurance companies and doctors are always on your side.

The staff is great and so are the Doctors. My daughter has seen Dr.Miranda, Dr.Macalintal, Dr.Hijazi And Dr.Esteves and feels comfortable with all of them. It's a friendly environment and their office hours are very convenient. All the staff are Spanish speaking which is another awesome point. I'm able to get appointments right away and the wait time is very minimal.

I’ve been taking my daughter here since she was born, nothing but positive things to say about the office. I love Dr MIranda and Dr Hijazi!! I never have a problem calling the office to get an apt. If anything the friendly staff calls me to remind me of an apt or to book an apt with the Dr I want my daughter to see. It’s great to feel valued as a patient to let me know if or when my child is due for a well exam/vaccines. Thank you COJP!
