[...] The day Dr. Petrescu came to see me in the hospital was one of the best day for me. She explained very thorough why I was a perfect candidate for an "open heart" surgery. She, literally, saved my life.

While I am confident with Dr. Petrescu's knowledge of my health and heart health in general, I felt that her treatment approach would be the same no matter what I asked or what I was curious about and this seemed to lead her to not listen very closely to my questions and not answer them very thoroughly. My time with her felt rushed. I am craving more education regarding tests, results, medications, interactions with other conditions I have, and other approaches. There was also a note taker in with us that inevitably changed the dynamic of our conversation a bit. I left this most recent office visit feeling as discouraged as when I arrived.

Dr. Petrescu is very easy to work with. She is always pleasant, but professional and takes the time to make sure you understand problems and treatments. I am very pleased being a patient under her care.

[...] I feel that Dr. Petrescau is a thoroughly qualified medical professional who focused more on the issue of stress in my life (after I had addressed those issues myself) and had been seeing a therapist for several weeks prior to seeing her for this appointment. That should have indicated to this physician that i was taking a "proactive" role in my heath care. I allowed her to "explore" my life further by calling my therapist, but I don't particularly think she was appropriate. She should have focused instead on changing my blood pressure medication to one that works better for me.

[...] the doctor spent perhaps 15 minutes with me after being almost 45 minutes late for my appointed time. [...]

This MD is a cardiologist. [...] I do not LOVE this cardiologist the way I have heard others describe how they LOVE their cardiologist.

Friendly but superficial in content of communication. Glosses over questions very quickly giving very brief responses.

The doctor sits and look at me eye to eye as if she read the information before coming in and wanting to spend our time together assessing behavioral changes that would benefit me farther. Her time with me is focused on me, I get all my questions answers, and she always add one more little thing I can do to continue to feel well.
