07/01/14 4 4 2 3 I was very unhappy with the care (or lack thereof) that I received, which is why I transferred to another OBGYN midway through my 2nd pregnancy. I do not blame her or her colleagues for my firstborn's premature birth, but when they didn't show any different approach to my 2nd pregnancy given my history, I got very upset. It was I who had to push them to refer to me to a high risk group for additional care (who by the way thought I should have been referred right away, given my history). The worst part was how she made me feel like I was being paranoid and dramatic about any symptoms I mentioned, like my concerns were invalid. Guess what... I ended up having to be on bedrest for 3 months for the 2nd pregnancy because of premature contractions and shortening cervix. Thank God I went with someone else who listened to me and didn't disregard my concerns!!!

18/01/13 4 4 5 5 Dr. petraske is fabulous! I recommend all my family and friends to her because she is THAT good. She is the perfect mix of smart, experienced, and accomplished complete with the warm and fuzzy factor. Dr. Petraske delivered my first baby 5 weeks premature via emergency c-section. I felt safe and comforted the minute she walked into the room and felt like I had been seeing her my entire life. My c-section was a breeze, my recovery perfect and my scar is barely there. She followed up with me as if she was my own family member. My baby was delivered safe, sound and healthy. I have been going to her ever since and she is truly AMAZING. She delivered my second baby via c-section as well. Love her.

16/07/07 4 4 5 5 I have been seeing Drs. Petraske, Friedman and Gross for over 10 years. I have 3 children and they were all delivered by Dr.Gross and Petraske. Their bedside manor is fantastic and they really made me feel comfortable during some very difficult times in all 3 pregancies. The nurse staff at Princeton Medical center is also fantastic. I had the same nurses for all 3 children. I would highly recommend not only Dr. Petraske, but her associates and the Medical Center. You will never get better treatment anywhere else!

26/06/07 4 5 5 Dr. Petraske has been my doctor since I was 15 (I am now 22). She has always remembered me every time I've gone - from how college was going to how my boyfriend was doing. She is always very caring and honestly concerned for her (must be) hundreds of patients. I would not switch doctors for anything!  Respond
