As a women cardiologist, my heart, my devotion, and my interest will always focus on shaping our knowledge of heart disease in women. Let’s fight together against the number one killer in women- heart disease, by recognizing the gender specific and unique signs and symptoms of cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Staciu was upfront and honest with my when answering my questions. She seemed very concerned that I was still having problems after my open heart surgery and did every thing she could that day to get to the bottom of it. She changed my prescriptions around and added another which have helped me get better.

Reviewed on February 6, 2019 6:00 PM

The only complaint I have is that I asked the nurse who took my vitals to print me a copy of one of my test results for my records. He said he would but never did. Also when I originally called in 10/2018 to schedule my appt for 12/2018, the woman scheduled me for an appt in 12/2019 in error. I showed up at the office on the day I thought the appt was scheduled on ly yo be told I did not have an appt. That is when the booking error was discovered. I also could not reschedule the appt that day because the staff at the office does not do the scheduling so I had to go back home and call the next day, which was very frustrating. But to their credit, the scheduling nurse was able to get me in to see the Dr. within the next week, so really no harm done other than a wasted trip.

Doctor talks to assistant throughout procedures about office issues & life events pretty much ignoring patient during procedures. I was never given or told about any prep procedures or asked to pay ahead of procedure but received a call the morning of asking for payment on the phone. I was told the assistant would call me to schedule my next appointment, it has been 10 days she has never called. In the past they have not called me with results of any tests. They are very bad with follow up & unorganized with appointments.
