Best Doctor I have ever been to. He was so thorough, and really cared about my wellbeing as opposed to just giving me a drug and telling me to come back in a month. Very thankful there are still good Doctors out there :)

I've lived in the Newport Beach area on and off for the past 8 years and in these years I have not once been impressed with a doctor to the point that I would write a review, until Dr. Marinescu. Ientered the office of OBGYN Care where Dr. Marinescu practices and it's clean, pleasantly decorated and nicely organized. There was barely a wait time and unlike previous doctors he sat down with me and went thoroughly over my health history. During the consultation he explained every step and it's purpose in detail. The first time in 13 years that I have been completely happy with a doctor and his practice. I highly recommend Dr. Marinescu to anyone that is looking for a great doctor.

Dr. Marinescu is so calm and methodical. He explains all the procedures clearly. I am very picky with choosing a doctor and Dr. Marinescu gets all stars from me from booking to the actual check up itself.
