Never followed up with me on my MRI even when I called I still didn't get a call back. Also didn't follow up with extensive blood work. She spent a lot of time with me on first visit so thought she was thorough, but no follow through is poor care. Won't go back!

Doesn't follow up with lab results. Told me to Google the blood disease that I was diagnosed with.

The experience working with Dr. Rodica Petrea was great. She was immediately available, did ask many questions, was engaged in the discussion and able to explain her opinion in a clear and understandable way. She did follow up to ensure the information is understood. I would recommend Dr. Petrea to any family member of friends.
