Dr. Ionescu is completely unprofessional and quite rude. My physician referred me to her and I couldn’t be more disappointed. For each appointment, I have had to leave work early for my appointment, only to be left waiting for over an hour every time. Furthermore, she seems to disbelieve anything I say regardless of whether or not she has my medical history in her hands. I will be looking for another doctor.

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!!
