For over 25 years, our office has been providing obstetric and gynecological care to the Princeton-Plainsboro community. We have a dedicated team of nurses and staff helping us to provide our patients with the highest standard of care in an intimate and compassionate atmosphere. It only takes one visit with us to realize this is not your average doctor’s office.
While neither quite remember their first meeting, Alan Friedman and Jeffrey Gross were introduced to each other during their college years by a mutual friend. Little did they know, that a few years later they would end up working together as co-residents at NYU in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Upon completing their residency, the two decided to start a practice together. The Princeton area proved be an ideal location to raise a family and allowed both physicians to be near family and friends. While the doctors were busy finishing residency, Dr. Friedman’s father was out scouting locations for their new office and he stumbled upon the perfect space located at the medical office building adjacent to the hospital. Drs. Friedman and Gross started seeing patients in their new office in July of 1986.
Years later, Jeffrey Gross at the request of a friend, took a phone call from a physician who was completing her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology in Massachusetts. She was pursuing a job in the area and wanted information regarding the hospital and surrounding community. While answering her questions, Dr. Gross mentioned that he and his partner had talked about the possibility of adding another physician if the right person came along. Needless to say, the resident was Dr. Alison Petraske and after completion of her residency, she relocated to the Princeton area to work at Princeton Ob/Gyn.
Ironically, the story of how Dr. Nicole Siems ended up at Princeton Ob/Gyn is not all that different from Dr. Petraske’s. While considering a job offer at another nearby hospital, Dr. Siems reached out for information from an outside source and was put in touch with Dr. Friedman. While answering her questions, Dr. Friedman mentioned that his group was also looking for new associate. Upon completion of her residency, Dr. Siems joined the group.
With the move of the hospital to its new location in Plainsboro and the addition of a new physician, the group began looking for new office space. Having always been in close proximity to the hospital, the decision was made to relocate to the Medical Arts Pavilion at the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro. We have been seeing patients at this location since December 2012.
