Hunterdon Medical Center Stories



Jul 22, 2020, 3:57 PM
Hunterdon Medical Center: "Went in on the advice of my doctor for quick evaluation of a potential blood clot on a weekday afternoon. Waiting room empty yet I am still here waiting after 2 hours as workers chat, laugh and gossip with each other... had to ask for timing updates and was discouraged from waiting outside, although I did due to COVID worries. What if this is a serious clot that travels to my lungs? No sense of urgency whatsoever. Maddening. " - Diane
