I wrote about Dr Ionesco after my last annual wellness visit, and now I'm doing it again. When I left my former town I also left a great pcp. I didn't expect to find another just as good, but that's what happened with Dr Ionesco. I highly recommend, if she is accepting new patients.

I've been seeing Dr. Ionescu for several years and always find her professional, yet friendly. Her follow-up to me, through the system, is always timely. (As an aside, this website thinks she is working at Rockwood's main clinic. She hasn't been there for some time as she works at Rockwood's Moran Prairie Internal Medicine.)

In addition to being highly professional, Dr. I. (as she likes to be called) is always warm and genuinely interested in her patients concerns. When a particular issue is outside her specialty, her referrals have been to physicians that have shown the same interest and determination to help as Dr. I. I am grateful to have her as my primary care physician, and feel confident she will provide the best health care anyone can need.

Dr. Ionescu is caring and compassionate, has much knowledge and experience; also, delivers advice as if to a friend. As a construction worker, I often end up with minor injuries and feel secure being treated at this facility, with Dr. Ionescu.

Easy to get appts. Always pleasant, concerned about other aspects of my life. Never hesitates to order tests or follow-up on problems. She doesn't give up til the problem is resolved. Always upbeat. Absolutely thorough, explores issues l wouldn't have thought of, or thought relevant. Really excellent visits..
