What People Say About Dr. Cristina Dumitru, MD

I've seen Dr Dumitru many times in the past four years, she's the best endocrinologist I've worked with in 32 years as a type 1 diabetic. Adjectives I'd use to describe her include: classy, informative, friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I frankly don't see how a person could enjoy a more effective doctor, I'm most pleased.

She makes you feel like you have known her for a long time in you first visit, that's how warming she is. As far as knowledge, she definately knows what she is talking about. So far I have no complains about my experience with Dr. Dimitru, and I hope I don't ever get one.
