What People Say About Dr. Adrian Popescu, MD

Dr. Popescu is a over confident doctor. Told me he has never had a complication a number of times. I found him to be unprepared and in a rush the day of my injection in my spine. He was rude to everyone around him. On follow up he was rude and condescending telling me I was born with this injury, even though I experienced this injury a year earlier. The MRI said new findings since 2015. I would not recommend him to anyone. Either he lost his compassion or never had it!

I found Popescu to be rude and condescending. He did not listen to me. I will never go back to him nor recommend him to others.

Dr. Popescu is hands down THE BEST! He’s the only reason that I was able to avoid neurosurgery for a serious buldging disc. His bedside manner is incredible, but more then anything, he fixed my pain with his Cortisone injections. I went from having the worst nerve pain that I never imagined existed to being pain free for 4 months since. He’s accurate, precise, and I would recommend him to all. I’ll be forever greatful for his help.

We were very unhappy with Dr. Popescue's response time. Consult was very short. Told us to schedule for a procedure. No real explanation was given. We had to ask for a diagnosis. Injection given. No follow up by Doctor or his office. Patient sufferering from acute pain. He was disappointing.
