Doctor Gutowski and his team recently performed a hip replacement for me. From beginning to end the communications were flawlessly accurate, professional and respectful. Everything happened exactly how Doctor Gutowski said it would, and his responsiveness to my many questions were clear, prompt, accurate and delivered with respect. The operation itself occurred on a Wednesday morning, and I walked the length of a football field on Wednesday afternoon. I was released on Thursday afternoon.

Prob not a good choice for orthopedic care - too brazen & eager to do surgery. Sloppy incision site, infection & then back to hospital for 2 weeks in the ICU!

Rude office staff, After taking my mom to an appointment that took 2 months to get. Upon our arrival was told she did not have an appointment. Another appt. is made I call to verify appt. for Monday. No appt. is scheduled. In the mean time I have an orange appt. card and paperwork that was needed to be filled out on our return. I could not believe the office clerk said to me I am leaving in 3 minutes do you want to make another appointment or not. Totally unacceptable and unprofessional.

Dr. Gutowski Is a caring and very professional physician. I had a bi-lateral knee replacement in September 2016. He and his staff let me know what was going to occur every step of the way. Dr. Gutowski does his surgery at the Princeton Health Center of Plainsboro. The staff there was fantastic. This was the best medical experience I have had in my 67 years.
