Medical Care Information

Medical and Dental Care Referral

We encourage you to establish a relationship with a physician and a dentist in the Princeton area before you need their services in an emergency. Many physicians and dentists in the community have a heavy patient load and may be unable or unwilling to treat you unless they have already seen you in a non-emergency situation.

It is recommended that you become familiar with the provisions of your plan before medical services may be needed. Cindy Pearce is available to answer your questions concerning your chosen IAS Aetna health insurance plan.
