I’ve already referred two family members and will be referring more soon! Dr M. is very kind, patient thorough and extremely helpful to obtain services and explains them in detail to make you feel comfortable and confident in your personal decisions. His staff is friendly, helpful, and very efficient with office paperwork, referrals, denials, appeals, state paperwork, and anything else you may ask of them. After surgery, Dr M was available to me 24/7. I highly recommend Dr M. and his staff

I found Dr. Marinescu on Healthgrade in 2015. He is by far the best GYN I've ever had. After getting nowhere with my previous GYN, Dr. Marinescu was able to diagnose all my issues and performed a hysterectomy. He's an amazing surgeon and takes the time to explain everything. You can't even tell I had surgery, the minimal scarring has faded. Great bedside manner and sense of humor. His staff is amazing as well.

Dr. Marinescu is wonderful.He was my DR during my entire pregnancy w/my 2nd baby& had some scary moments (bleeding during term, pain etc). Because I was 34 we had to make sure all was good with me &baby boy.I thank God for his patience, care& understanding. He is kind& very knowledgeable. I appreciated the girls in office- they were always professional &friendly. I ended up having a c-sect and was nervous but he reassured me &a great surgeon. Aftercare was excellent too. Referred many bc of it.

I picked Dr. Marinescu after doing a thorough research. It was my first pregnancy and I wanted only the best care my baby and I could get. He was amazing right from the start. He was able to calm my nerves, would take no time to answer my questions (which as I look back now,seem silly), was thorough, and everything I could ask for. I always looked forward seeing him. Now that I am pregnant again, with no hesitation, he's going to be my OB again!

From the 1st appointment with Dr. Marinescu I knew I made the right choice. He is professional, compassionate and knowledgeable. He has impressive surgical experience. I had robotic hysterectomy with pelvic reconstruction. I am ecstatic with the results. Before surgery I had severe pelvic pain and bleeding. After the robotic surgery I felt no pain, no discomfort. One month later I cannot believe my old pain is gone. I feel I got a fresh start in life. I got my life back! Thank you Dr. Marinescu!

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.

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.

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.

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.
