I’ve been seeing Dr. Cristina Dumitru for a little over three years now. She is by far the absolute best endocrinologist I’ve ever seen. She’s very patient, listens to her patients, gives her feedback, explains everything very well and is very caring! I highly recommend her!

I like Dr Dumitru’s approach to treatment because she actually listens to what the patient is saying. She helps resolve any problems the patient might have and doesn’t try to rush the patient through the appointment. Plus, her questions are to the point, she is thorough and quite knowledgeable.

I admire the fact that Dr. Dumitru provides a service focused on personalized medical care. I agree that indeed she is very knowledgeable and thorough. Her demeanor puts her patients at ease as she is very open to questions. I love the fact that I am an active participant in my care. Her PA also deserves recognition as she does a wonderful job in keeping me informed, relaying messages, answering questions and submitting orders for labs, etc.

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.
