What People Say About Dr. Lucia Voiculescu, MD

Excellent. Dr. Voiculescu was direct, thorough and spot on with her diagnosis that I proceed with spinal surgery to repair stenosis of the upper spine - explaining that pain management procedures such as cortisone shots , PT and acupuncture would be of no value. I have complete faith in her diagnoses.

I would not recommend this inhumain doctor to anyone. She has no compassion for people with disabilities. I had an appointment scheduled with her I contacted the office to let them know I was running a few mins late, when I arrived 5 mins later she refused to see me . As I waited to be seen by another doctor from the practice one of her patients arrived she was also late for her appointment and was seen by her. I say if this is not enough to keep you away enter at your own risk.

Dr. Voiculescu is one the most accomplished professionals at NYU Langone Medical Center. She is knowledgeable, up to the latest medical information. Dr. Voiculescu is caring, compassionate and caters to the patient's best interests, always. I saw several Neurologists before I came to her and she was the only one to treat me successfully.

Zero compassion, belittling, a complete waste of my valuable time seeing her.
