What People Say About Dr. Alexandra Popescu, MD
Reply
Love dr popescu. Ive been seeing her for several years now. She is so friendly and kind hearted and really listens. She is fast to respond to questions via email and has even called me for follow up. The only reason I cannot give 5 stars is the TERRIBLE office staff. I mean just awful. I have such a hard time schedule appointments and refilling prescriptions. Everything is always incorrect and takes me days to correct due to their incompetence. It's quite baffling.

I was under Dr. Popescu's care in the epilepsy monitoring unit. She was thorough and cared about getting to the root of my issue, validating my experience along the way. At the end of my stay, she took the time to explain and answer any questions. Turns out I don't have epilepsy, but I left confident she was sending me in the right direction towards diagnosis.
