Patient Comments (6)
in Irvine, CA |
Dr. Marinescu wasn't answering my questions or in a vaguely manner. I really had the feeling that I wasn't considered seriously. After I delivered my baby, he didn't even perform a post-delivery exam. I was worried about unexplained bleedings and he said it was normal. This is my family practice doctor, concerned about that lack of professionalism, who asked for a PAP smear and additional exams. I should have changed for another ob-gyn provider from the beginning... This is my biggest regret.
in San Clemente, CA |
I had been to several OBGYNs in the last 5 years trying to get help with my symptoms. Dr Marinescu was able to instill the trust in me that I had lost with other M.D.s. He performed a hysterectomy on me 6 weeks ago and I couldn't have had a better experience. Absolutely little to no pain from the procedure! He is knowledgeable, kind and a highly skilled surgeon and I highly recommend him.

He is an amazing Doctor! With my husband and I 2nd child another baby boy, I am excited to have him as my dr. He shows a wealth of knowledge , compassion, patience, professionalism, preciseness & adaptability. I worked at Hoag and I've got plenty of Drs to choose from a plethora of doctors and upon choosing my Obgyn, my husband and I took great thought. Seeing how he is as a surgeon and the way he treats others and his great results, makes me very confident. The office staff is very friendly.
in Newport Beach, CA |
I am grateful for finding Dr. Marinescu. He is direct, no sugar coating time-wasting joking-laughing to hide lack of knowledge. I have been seen twice, I had all the tests done including then I had the surgery which changed my life. The same hysterectomy with suspension I learned from my acquaintances it can be a terrible experience, was like a walk in the park for me. I am a very busy business owner and I appreciate the truth as I see it, I totally think that is the way surgeons should be.
in Scottsdale, AZ |
If you are looking for the one look no further. Before I even met Dr. Marinescu his welcoming staff greeted me with genuine excitement and very personable conversation. He is very smart, listens to all your concerns and explains everything simply. He is very patient, kind and honest. His communication is strong too, there is a patient portal you can review all your lab results and see the doctors notes. Over all, the best care I have ever had.
in Brea, CA |
Second to none. I will certainly recommend him to all my lady friends.
