Pediatric Residents Class of 2023

Natalie Falcon, DO

University of Miami
Medical School: Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine - Middletown
Pediatric Interests: Allergy & Immunology, Pulmonology, Primary Care
Hobbies: Going to the beach, baking, hiking, yoga, travel
Bio: Hi, I’m Natalie! I was born and raised in Miami, FL, where my large Cuban family lives and where I love returning to for some fun in the sun. Growing up, I always enjoyed my science classes and had a passion for serving my community, and that naturally evolved into my interest in medicine. I particularly appreciated my experiences serving and working with children, which made me gravitate towards Pediatrics. I studied Microbiology & Immunology at the University of Miami (Go Canes!) with minors in Chemistry and Business Administration. After that, medical school brought me to the Northeast where I studied at the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine - Middletown (and saw my very first snowfall!). My clinical rotations confirmed my love for pediatrics, which simply felt like the perfect fit for me.  At the start of my fourth year, I completed an Acting Internship at Hackensack and instantly felt a connection to the program. I immediately related to the residents I worked with and felt that the attending physicians fostered a very positive learning environment. I am so excited to officially be a part of the HUMC community, and I can’t wait to see what the next three years have in store while caring for the tiny humans!

Ian Lee, M.D.

Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ
Medical School: Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School
Pediatric Interests: Neonatology, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Public Health
Hobbies: Food, reggae music, fishing, surfing, snowboarding, cycling, archery, gardening, and brewing beer.
Bio: I was born and raised in the inner city of the South Bronx and moved to New Jersey later in life. Transitioning from the concrete jungle of New York City to the sandy beaches of the Jersey Shore was a big change for me. However, it exposed me to a diverse group of people and activities that would eventually shape and mold me into the person I am today. I was raised by a family of Nurses, and I grew up hearing many stories of adult medical care, but I have always been inspired and intrigued by the resilience of children. Having met a few of the senior pediatric residents training at HUMC, I heard firsthand of the great residency environment that Hackensack fostered. With a background in education, I was especially drawn to the program’s dedication to teaching and community outreach. I am extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of the HUMC Pediatric Family and I look forward to continuing my journey here.

Jessica Ludolph, M.D.

Lehigh University
Medical School: Rutgers New Jersey Medical School
Pediatric Interests: NICU or General Pediatrics 
Hobbies: running, thriller novels, and true crime documentaries 
Bio: I grew up in New Jersey and have lived here almost my entire life. I briefly left to attend Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA but returned for medical school at Rutgers NJMS in Newark. My favorite outdoor activities involve brunch and the beach, though I will go on an occasional hike if my husband and dog want to. My friends and family are very important to me and I wanted to stay close by during residency. I chose Hackensack partly for the location but mostly for the amazing people I met here. I have met such a great group of people I enjoy working with every day. 

Jessica Magharious, M.D.

Loyola University, Chicago
Medical School: St. George’s University School of Medicine
Pediatric Interests: Primary Care, General Pediatrics
Hobbies: Traveling, ice skating, baking, spending time with family and friends
Bio: I was born and raised in the Windy City, aka Chicago. I received my bachelor’s degree in Biology at Loyola University Chicago and went on to pursue my dream of becoming a Pediatrician at St. George’s University. Grenada will always hold a special place in my heart because it lead me to many things. I was able to begin my career, establish lifelong friendships, and blessed to have met my husband there. I moved to New Jersey afterwards to start my clinical training and I was fortunate to make it my second home. I am excited to begin my new journey at HUMC surrounded by an amazing and supportive pediatric family. 

Shir Miretzky, DO

 Rutgers University
Medical School: Rowan University College of Osteopathic Medicine
Pediatric interests: ICU and Ethics 
Hobbies: anything in the water, eating out, working out, reading, and makeup 
Bio:I was born in Israel and emigrated to the United States with my immediate family at a young age. My passion and comfort in caring for children stemmed through many years working as a swim coach, tutor, and through child care. Although I completed undergraduate and medical school in NJ, I love exploring National Parks throughout the US and visiting my family in Israel often (well not these days..). In my free time you will find me working out, reading, or baking for our Thursday didactics. I am so grateful and humbled to join the impressive team of pediatricians at HUMC for my training.

Juhi Motiani, M.D.

Drexel University
Medical School: St. George’s University College of Medicine
Pediatric Interests: Neonatology
Hobbies: Hiking, traveling, yoga and painting
Bio: I was born in New Jersey but raised in Pennsylvania for most of my life. I stayed in the northeast in the cutest city, the City of Brotherly Love, at Drexel University in Philadelphia for my bachelor's degree and then went on to the beautiful island of Grenada, to St. George's University School of Medicine for the next four years. In my free time, I love hiking, traveling, yoga and painting. I always knew I wanted to become a physician and I am grateful for all the opportunities that allowed me to reach this point today. I am elated to be a part of the pediatric team/family at Joseph M. Sanzari Children's Hospital. 

Mohammad Rizvi, M.D.

Queens College, City University of New York
Medical School: St. George’s University College of Medicine
Pediatric Interests: Pediatric Emergency Medicine, General Pediatrics and Global health. 
Hobbies: Basketball, fitness, biking and quality time with my nieces and nephews.
Bio: I was born and raised in Long Island, NY. I received a bachelor’s degree in biology from Queens College and went on to study medicine in Grenada at St. George’s University, not really knowing what I wanted to do with a medical degree. One week into my pediatric ER rotation, I knew that nothing in health care would be more meaningful to me than treating and caring for vulnerable children who still have their entire future ahead of them. I hope to one day work with children in underserved areas of the world. I am confident that HUMC, with its diverse volume of patients and fantastic faculty, will not only prepare me for a career in Pediatrics but challenge me to become the best clinician I can be.

Camille Wilson, M.D.

University of California, Riverside 
Medical School: St. George’s University College of Medicine
Pediatric Interests: Health equity, Advocacy, Pediatric Gastroenterology, Global Medicine 
Hobbies: outdoor activities; picnics, hiking, going to the beach, baking cookies, spending time with my family 
Bio: My love for Pediatrics comes from my passion for working with children and building strong relationships with my patients and their families. Children have always been an important part of my life, whether it was teaching Sunday school at my church or providing after school tutoring in science. I believe all children, no matter their race, religion, background or socioeconomic status deserve access to quality, compassionate health care and I want to help provide that for them. I was born in Dominica, in the Caribbean, of Guyanese parents and grew up in Southern California. Because of this, I am accustomed to interacting with very diverse communities. While in college, I did a study abroad program in South Africa where I worked in a mobile health clinic and met people who had extremely limited health services. This experience made me even more conscious of the importance of access to health care. I have a special interest in health equity and global medicine.  I believe that because of my love for children and my nurturing spirit, a career as a pediatrician is one in which I can make a great contribution.
