Princeton Medicine An Exceptional Physician Group. Expert. Caring. Convenient.

Sep 10, 2013

If you are looking for a highly skilled physician in an office close by, look no further than Princeton Medicine.

Princeton Medicine is the new name of the network of primary and specialty physicians who are employed by Princeton HealthCare System (PHCS). Backed by the strength of the healthcare system, Princeton Medicine is an exciting collaboration—local practices working in concert to offer exceptional, coordinated care throughout our community. With locations stretching from Monroe to Robbinsville, Plainsboro to Lawrenceville, and more, Princeton Medicine is sure to have an office near you.

The group includes family medicine, geriatric medicine, and internal medicine physicians who are highly skilled in primary and preventive healthcare. It also includes medical and surgical specialists in fields ranging from obstetrics and gynecology to cardiology and thoracic surgery. Click here to see a complete list of specialties.

“Princeton Medicine’s board certified physicians cover the great majority of medical needs that most patients will face during their lives,” says David Lazarus, MD, PHCS’ Chairman of Medicine. “All of our physicians have been selected because of their training and experience, and many hold medical school teaching positions, ensuring they are at the top of their game.”

The Princeton Medicine Advantage
Because of its direct affiliation with University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro (UMCPP), Princeton Medicine can ensure you receive comprehensive, coordinated care.

For example, a patient may see a Princeton Medicine family doctor in Dayton and later receive care from a Princeton Medicine hospitalist and gastroenterologist at UMCPP. All of those physicians share a common electronic medical record, so patient information can be shared instantly.

“We have taken steps to establish high standards of care within all of the Princeton Medicine practices,” says Barbara Yost, Vice President, Continuum of Care Services. “Patients can expect quality care no matter which site they utilize—in the hospital or throughout the community.”

What’s more, because it’s part of Princeton HealthCare System, Princeton Medicine can also easily and efficiently connect patients with services such as Princeton HomeCare, Princeton Rehabilitation Services, and Princeton House Behavioral Health, Yost says.

Quality Care and Convenience
Each Princeton Medicine location was chosen for ease of access and each offers convenient, free parking. The practices are patient friendly, with features such as:

  • On-site laboratory services so patients don’t have to go to a different location for blood tests.
  • Same-day appointments, in most cases. If an appointment is not available at your primary doctor’s office, but you need to be seen urgently, an appointment can often be made at another Princeton Medicine location.
  • Wide hallways and entryways to accommodate seniors and people with disabilities.
  • Physicians who speak languages including Spanish, Mandarin, Gujarati and Hindi.
Princeton Medicine is also developing an online Patient Portal where patients can log in to a secure, password-protected site to view certain medical information, such as their test results.

“We want Princeton Medicine to be a model for providing seamless care for patients as they transition between outpatient care, testing, and the hospital,” says Dr. Lazarus, who is board certified in internal medicine, critical care medicine and pulmonary disease. “We will continue to look for innovative ways to provide top-quality care wherever it is needed in the communities we serve.”
