I like that she’s not an alarmist and is no nonsense while still being pleasant and thorough. Unfortunately, since her practice became part of the Virtua buyout of Lourdes, the operation of the office staff is very inefficient with inexperienced (and some rude) staff who keep you waiting when checking out, don’t follow up on sending reports, appear unknowledgeable about procedures or information. I am considering finding a new family doctor.

Dr Draganescu is an amazing doctor. She was very attentive to my concerns and has taken excellent care me from A-Z. She answered my questions and addressed all my concerns. I felt very comfortable with her. The office staff is pleasant and very accommodating. I’ve had an excellent experience. I would recommend her as she was also recommended to me by a colleague.

I have been seeing Dr. Draganescu for about three years She is very caring, thoughtful and sees things that other Doctors have missed. She never rushes me and double checks everything to make sure that I understand her directions which are always right on target. She cares about all of her patients to the point of being consoling and will listen with her heart. I am truly grateful that I have found such a wonderful Doctor. Also she has a very; caring staff. Blessings, Jeanne

I love Dr. draganescu!! She is so sweet and she actually listens. I've had doctors in the past that practically push me out of the exam room, but she always wants to make sure I'm satisfied and feel comfortable leaving. One thing that I don't like about going to see her is the staff. They are always giving people a hard time, they don't want to go the extra mile, and they just don't seem to care about the patients. I work at an eye doctors office and we are all about customer service!
