While telling me something caught his attention in the ultrasound he was very goofy with the staff. Not being able to tell me what complications it could bring he said after the MRI results come in we would know more information and whether I would want to terminate the pregnancy, not the correct words to use especially if no results are in yet!. Then he wants to send me to CHOP in PA for an MRI is ridiculous, getting a 2nd opinion! Asked personal questions too, is he the father of your first?

Dr Principie has a very direct, no sugar coating approach. As I am nearing 40, have a history of blood clots and this being my first pregnancy, I understood the risks. Dr Principie was encouraging, honest and gave us hope when we had lost hope. He helped us through the emotions of our two miscarriages and never let us give up. Today, we are the proud parents of an amazing healthy boy and would probably have not done it with out the help of Dr. Principie and his AMAZING Staff. Thank You Team

I would never recommend this doctor to anyone going through a tough pregnancy. He asked us not to proceed with the pregnancy and was quite blunt and unfeeling. He never seemed to have time to stand/sit and talk about our options. I went on to have a full term pregnancy no thanks to this doctor.

Worst Doctor, I met him during my 20tth week of pregnancy. I was going through complications and instead of fixing the issue he immodestly recommended us to abort the pregnancy. I was shocked and heart broken. We immediately went for a second opinion and today I have a healthy 9 month old baby. I am thankful to date that we didn't listen to dr. David Príncipe's suggestion else I would have lost my child. I hate this doctor. He definitely can't handle complicated cases.

I met Dr. Principe at 16 weeks pregnant. We hit it off so well the 1st day. He was very outspoken and so was I. I asked questions and he answered them each and every time. He was reachable by phone at every stage throughout my twin pregnancy. After my successful delivery he took the time to tell me how proud he was of me for following all his instructions that led to a safe pregnancy and ultimately a safe delivery. The best Dr. EVER! His nurse Nicole and secretary Jessica..amazing!!??
