15/05/14 5 5 5 5 Hi everyone, I am Rohini kalal. Dr Principe is an excellent doctor. I am very lucky and soo happy to get him as my doc. He has saved mine and my twin babies lives. My twin babies had ttts. Baby A had stopped growing thats when he decided to operate me at 27 weeks.. He is just amazing.. the way he took prenatal care of me is wonderful. Dr Principe is very knowlegeable, hardworking, generous. the confidence with which he handles every case is amazing. His C-section stitching is beautiful. Yesterday was my last visit with him :-( Miss meeting him. I LOVE Dr Principe :-) St Josephs hospital is the best.. A huge thank you to Dr Principe, Jessica, Vicky and his entire staff. God Bless him!! And a big thanks to St Josephs NICU team who took care of my babies for almost 3 months.. Dr Principe used to always ask me ARE U HAPPY? I cannot express in words how much Happy I am :-) My advice to all patients is just trust him and do whatever he says :-)

15/02/12 5 2 5 5 HANDS DOWN THE BEST DOC & STAFF!! This wonderfully gifted doctor helped me become a mother to a healthy little boy. There are no words that can explain how wonderful he is. I was never made to feel rushed or like I didn't matter. He is great. Gypsy (Elmwood Pk), his mgr is AWESOME! Always willing to help & put patients at ease. Jennifer (Jersey City Med Ctr) also caring and lovely. I actually miss being pregnant because these ppl became such a big part of me and my pregnancy. They got me through it! Phenomenal ppl! However, his Hoboken staff leaves a lot to be desired. Virginia Del Guercio-Vazquez  Respond

10/02/12 5 3 5 5 dr. Principe is nothing short of amazing. I went to him for 2 pregnancies and I have nothing negative to say about him. he is very knowledgeable and eases any fears you may have. he definitely takes as much time needed to answer any questions. my boys came into this world without any complications due to his thorough testing and care. I cannot thank him (and his excellent staff) enough for all they had done for us. if you are concerned about your health and the health of your child, rest assured this is the doctor you want to go to. doctors don't get any better than this.

15/03/11 5 5 5 5 Dr.Principe is the right choice for every women out there that deals with high risk pregnancy.He is the first doctor that didn't gave me an impression that I am just a number.He is a real professional that knows what he is doing and is there for you as a patient every step of your pregnancy.Personally I will never be able to thank him enough for saving my baby girl. For me and my family he is not just a doctor that cares for his patients and knows how to do his job. We consider him as a lifetime friend and we are happy that we have Dr. Principe in our lives.

09/03/10 5 3 5 5 Dr. Principe is amazing! He made me so comfortable in his care. He knew exactly what was going on with my neurological condition and how it would affect my pregnancy. He answers all questions and doesnt rush you out the door like most other doctors. He's my favorite doctor ever!!!

09/02/10 5 4 5 5 Dr.Principe is one of the best doctors I've had. I was referred to him because I was having twins and they are considered high risk pregnancies. From the first time I met him, he was straight up and told me everything that needed to be done. He is the reason why I gave birth at 37 weeks, which is full term for twins, each weighing 6.6 lbs. and 6.2 lbs. And his stitching for c-section is beautiful.

07/12/09 5 4 5 5 He is the best Doctor ever. I felt very comfortable in his care. His staff in Ridgewood Park and at Palisades Hospital were the best. Sometimes he can be a little harsh with words, but its for the good. I rather for a doctor to be upfront, honest and loving, like Dr. Principe. He will put you on the right track if your not doing right. He is quick to put you in the hospital too. LOL!!! But, I love Dr. Principe. I would whole heatedly recommend him and have recommended him to family and friends and they all love him too. Thanks Doctor for being the best!!!!

07/07/09 1 1 3 4 I attended his office 2x in Palisades General hospital for a twin pregnancy.That office was fantastic, on-time, clean, & punctual. Due to insurance issues,I had to switch to Elmwood Pk and I am very disappointed there.I have been there 3 times and each time the wait is over an hour due to overbooking. I asked if there was a best time to go (i.e. 1st in am) and I was told no-everyone waits because the doctor is only there on Tuesdays. The staff is not very professional-they don't wear lab coats and during my cervix checks-different techs left the door partially open! I've also had lab techs chew gum througout the ultrasounds.For the ultrasounds, only the tech can see the images and at the end of the session, it seemed like the tech rushed through the key images and weights (~2-3 minutes total review for twins) The office appears run down. I've talked to other people in the waiting room and they praise Dr. Principe as an excellent doctor.I haven't had more than 5 min with him.

12/06/09 5 5 5 5 Excellent doctor! He delivered my mono mono twins five years ago when my pregnancy became high risk. He is caring and very knowledgable. He was always there to answer any questions at any time of the day. If it wasnt for him my twin girls would not be here today. I would highly recommend him.
