Avoid Princeton Hospital!!!!

This place is a danger to your life. The staff is pathetic, very rude, condescending, and highly incompetent. Their incompetence nearly caused the death of my father. They misdiagnosed him and kept on trying to cover their tracks. But they forgot that there is something called the internet. My family members checked the symptoms that my dad had and what the hospitalists were saying and found that they had completely misdiagnosed his ailment. We immediately decided to take him out of this system and get him admitted to another hospital. They initially refused but then relented when they found that we knew that they had misdiagnosed him.

Took him to another hospital where thanks to the best efforts of the doctors and their competence, he is alive today. Save yourself as well as your family by avoiding going to Princeton Hospital.

Personally, I have not faced any issues with the hospital or its staff. I have sought care, and so has my family, and every time we have been treated well. My husband and I are nearing 40. We live very active as well as a healthy lifestyle. However, one night after dinner, he started complaining of uneasiness, and I rushed him to the hospital, where he was diagnosed as having a heart attack. He had to spend some time there and also undergo two bypass surgeries. The care he got here was exceptional. He was under the care of an awesome staff, and they made sure that he was completely recovered before leaving the hospital. The food was also very good, which was surprising to both of us. Later on, we learned that my husband was one lucky guy since he had Vfib, which is very lethal and 70% of the patients who have it end up in the morgue. Princeton saved my husband's life. They would always be in our prayers

I underwent a hip replacement here and got excellent service. I received wonderful care. The staff was always helpful and attentive to my needs. The nurses were sweet. The doctors and surgeon were also great. Thanks to the wonderful care I got at this hospital, I was able to leave the hospital within a few days. Great experience!!
