Care provider provided a staff member to walk me to another providers office in the next building to obtain a medical letter for my [...] Insurance. This action exceeded my expectations of help.

The doctor was obviously determined to have the office visit be as efficient and quick as possible due to being way behind schedule.

My tests and doctor's appointment were scheduled to occur on the same day so as to avoid the need for me to return to Seattle another day, which is a trip that takes most of a full day. Much appreciated!

It was my one and only visit with this provider. She came highly recommended by my primary care doctor and I was extremely satisfied.

She is very nice, always smiling, but she comes in Very fast, talks fast. it puts you off. you forget what you wanted to ask because she goes way too fast. you can be the best at your job, smart..etc, but if you are not showing genuine comes off as fake. Also, the last time i was there, she had 2 scribes w/ her. I dod not like having to explain things in front of others, so i asked her to put it in my notes, so they would not be there again. this time, there was another scribe. things are dont too fast.

I feel very fortunate to be in Dr Petrescu's care. She is wonderful.

My experience was totally positive - Her attitude positive, encouraging.

Dr. Petrescu was excellent.

A truly wonderful experience

My former cardiologist [...] and I needed to switch to a new one. I am incredibly happy with Dr. Petrescu!

I have been so impressed with Dr. Petrescu as many of my friend will tell you. As they have to hear about my praise of this woman.

I enjoy my appointments with Dr. M. Petrescu. I am loyola to my providers (primary and cardiologist.)

I felt fortunate to see someone with Dr. Petrescu's expertise.

[...] 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.

very good

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 and her care is the very best. She is among the best I have ever experienced anywhere. She is a real to Swedish and all that it stands for and strives to be.
