Clinical staff did not ask questions, did not look at lab results, CT, US, heart data. They assumed more than used their brains, and SURGEON was worse. Told a fat post menopausal to seek psychological care within 10 seconds of introduction. He said "Yes, the CT does show there could be a problem with the abdominal arterial flow - maybe talk to your Primary Care about it." ... ! ... ??? Would give less than one star if it were an option here.

Dr. Hewlett literally saved my life. I was transferred to Princeton from another hospital with life threatening conditions. Dr. Hewlett took charge of the situation. He got me to a point where I could be taken off life support and eventually pretty much back to normal. He took the amount of time needed to answer any questions I had daily (for almost a month). He is definitely to the point with people, which I think is a good thing. I would recommend him to anyone.

The doctor acts as though he is too busy to discuss pancreatic cancer and it's treatment. In total, including pre-op, post-op and in the hospital, Dr. Hewlett spent less than 30 minutes with us. After my mothers tumor removal surgery, he acted as though our questions were boring and un-important. He explained so little about the procedure and what to do for follow up that my mother returned to another hospital (THANK GOD) within 48 hours of returning home from his surgery.
