Philosophy of Care

As a pediatric neurologist, I strive to provide comprehensive, compassionate care to all my patients and their families. When I rotated through pediatric neurology as a medical student I was struck with the complexity of the neurologic system and the vast effect that it has on a child's development. I strive to help all children meet their full developmental potential.


Dr. Lara Morse is a graduate of Dartmouth College where she was a classical piano performance major.

She completed her general pediatric training at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire. She then went on to complete her residency in pediatric neurology at Tufts-New England Medical Center/Floating Hospital for Children in Boston, Massachusetts. She additionally completed a pediatric epilepsy fellowship at Tufts-New England Medical Center/Floating Hospital for Children. She then became Director of the Pediatric Developmental Center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey until 2014.
