Univ Medical Center Of Princeton At Plainsboro Stories



Mar 31, 2015, 11:21 AM
Univ Medical Center Of Princeton At Plainsboro: "We were at the Princeton medical center ER. The wait time was 2 and a half hours. The total time taken to see a doctor was 3 hours. There were other patients who were throwing up, bleeding...all ended up waiting about 2 hours to even called in. Not sure if this is what is expected of the hospital. We as residents of Plainsboro were thrilled to have such a big hospital facility close by. But the long wait at the ER is very disappointing" - Lakshmi
