Cardiac Catheterization & Angioplasty
Nuclear Cardiac Stress Text
Princeton Interventional Cardiology, P.A. was founded in 1993 by Dr. T. John Mercuro, a cardiologist. Dr. Mercuro had a desire to establish a practice that would serve the Princeton and surrounding community and provide all patients will exceptional cardiac care. Our practice originally opened at 181 North Harrison Street in Princeton. As the practice began to grow, Dr. James R. Beattie joined the practice in 1996. Dr. Beattie brought his extensive knowledge of echocardiography to the practice and we continued to grow. By 2001, Dr. John D. Passalaris joined the practice bringing expertise in Nuclear Cardiology. By 2002, having outgrown the facility at 181 North Harrison Street, we opened a second location at 1000 Herrontown Road.
As our practice specializing in cardiology continued to grow, we recognized that we needed to secure a new location that would not only allow our operation to run more cost effectively for our patients, but would also provide them with the comfort and privacy they deserve. In April 2010 we moved into a new state-of-the-art facility built in 2010 to expressly meet the needs of our patients. It not only has comfortable and spacious examination rooms, but it has a full-service stress laboratory, echocardiography and nuclear cardiology laboratories. These are newly-designed, fully accredited labs, meaning they comply with the highest standards in cardiology, so we were able to provide academic
level comprehensive cardiac services, second to none, but in a convenient, comfortable office setting.
This new facility for Princeton allowed us to consolidate operations and provide our patients with greater access to our physicians. With this increased capacity, we are able to guarantee our patients that they can schedule a new patient appointment within 24 hours. We also guarantee that our patients, in need of a regular exercise stress test can be accommodated within 48 hours. We have a board-certified cardiologist available at all times during normal business hours. Patients that are in need of urgent care no longer must be sent to the Emergency Room, unless their condition is life-threatening. We believe that our patients desire personal, timely attention to their problems. Our goal is to have a person, not a machine, respond to our patients needs.
