Amazing care in TMH Emergency Department
Dr. Vincent Soh
“I want to send a personal thank you to the ER doctor and staff at Trenton Memorial Hospital working the evening of Saturday, April 15. Dr. Soh and the entire emerg team were beyond amazing, and I am so grateful for their care. Dr. Vincent Soh My mom and I came in as she was complaining of severe side pains in her stomach. We thought it was a UTI or Kidney Stone. Dr. Soh originally thought it may be a UTI as her urine sample was showing signs of it.
