Patient Comments (4)
Chicago, IL |
Describes practice as "medication management" but was not very responsive in terms of managing medication or monitoring health. Also, appointments were consistently running 45 mins to 1 hour late and Dr. Ionescu was uninterested in constructive feedback regarding better schedule management. Finally, poor rapport and offhand, unprofessional remarks made during visits. On a positive note, she is located at a convenient intersection accessible by train and bus.

Dr. Ionescu is such a compassionate person. She cares tremendously about all of her patients. I wouldn't see any other Psychiatrist in Chicago. I trust her completely. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She isn't even covered under my insurance and I continue to go to her because she is that great!!
