Patient Comments (11)
Aurora, CO |
Dr. Dinescu and his staff are terrific. Dr. Dinescu is coscientious, detail oriented. He listens carefully and does not overbook or rush, as do so many pcp/internists. My husband also sees him. We are both very satisfied. We hope to send our adult son there as a a new patient, when time allows.. I feel they will always get you in somehow if necessary.
Aurora, CO |
Dr. Dinescu had been instrumental in getting my mother back on track with better health. Her unwillingness to keep up on regular check ups has made her health a challenge. Even though she does not like to hear about the hurdles she has yet to make she has confidence in Dr. Dinescu's knowledge and proven medical advice given so far. His patience and understanding of how to speak with my mother is most appreciated.
Aurora, CO |
Very efficient and understanding
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

Dr Dinescu has been amazing so far! He listens to my concerns, explains things to me and I can tell he is trying to help me. I did not get the feeling that he does not like woman any of the times that I have seen him as another reviewer mentioned, not at all. He's great and if I move across town, I still plan to use him as my doctor!
Denver, CO |
He came across as not particularly liking women. Very condescending and rude. I found new doctor and really would not recommend him. Dr. Sara Corr was a gem and is missed greatly.
We are sorry to hear this and truly value your feedback. Patient experience is important to us at Centennial Primary Care, so we will make every effort to address your concerns. Please call our Practice Manager at 303-226-6180 so that we can get further information to address the situation.

Dr. Dinescu has seen me through 2 hip surgeries. He checked on me while I was in the hospital. He has been wonderful with me and with my husband throug any of our health needs. My daughter had an unforseen auto incident where a large rock came off a mountain and into her windshield. Thankfully Dr. Dinescu checked her thoroughly and she was fine.

For some reason he wanted to switch my anti-anxiety/depression meds. He changed me from and SSRI to and SSNI and it was miserable. I called multiple times, sometimes waiting a month to hear back, and was given very little help. The last time I tried, I was told by his nurse that there were no other options and that I needed to call a psychiatrist. That's fine but the meds he put me on put me in a very very bad place and he refused to put me on my old one while I waited to see a psychiatrist.
Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear about this experience in our practice and would like to look into it further. Please call our Practice Manager at 303-226-6180 so that we can get more information and and work to make improvements at the practice.

I found Dr. Dinescu to be extremely nice, thorough and even though it was just a standard office visit, he performed several mini physical checks, evaluating BP, eyes, ears, throat, then read for many minutes my written history I brought with, then performed physical checks on those issues in the narrative. This standard office visit went well beyond the time my old PCP spent with me. I am very comfortable with his knowledge and ability.

$500 visit for hypertension, Chlorthalidone scrip. While taking this drug, I experienced a considerable amount of weight gain and dizziness. I called 3 times to discuss this and was summarily dismissed by Linda each time. She insisted that the doctor agrees with her that this medication does not cause weight gain, but neither of them would do any research into the matter. I gave them documentation, but their arrogance has caused me to self medicate since they refuse to research. Disgraceful.
Aurora, CO |
$390 for a basic office visit!!!! Dr did not even understand how to prescribe medicine. Avoid at all costs!!
in Aurora, CO |
My $500 office visit went okay, he did all the things I expected. Follow up after that though was very poor. He does not understand the side effects of medicated he prescribed and refuses to do the proper research when I alerted him to a negative effect I was experiencing. He pushes phone calls off on his staff and it takes at least 3 days to get a call back.
