The provider was very professional and courteous. She answered all of my questions, gave suggestions, and listened to my fears.

July 27, 2020 5:24 PM

This was my first time seeing this provider, and she made me feel very comfortable and made me feel that I matter.

July 24, 2020 1:00 PM

Visit went well - no problems and no long wait.

July 8, 2020 11:13 AM

Dr. Mihailescu is a professional & efficient doctor. I personally wish she would listen & consider alternative methods other than prescription drugs. eg. healthy eating, exercise essential oils turmeric etc.

July 8, 2020 11:00 AM

Dr. Mihailescu is a good doctor.

July 8, 2020 11:00 AM

Doctor reviews all my medicine & checks to see if I am ok with my medicine that I am taking she gives suggestions & lets me decide what I think is good for me.

July 2, 2020 12:00 AM

Nothing bad to say. Everything was perfect.

June 22, 2020 11:41 PM

Always informative and advises in my opinion the direct path of treatment.

June 22, 2020 11:41 PM

I've only experienced nothing less than stellar service.

May 4, 2020 8:37 AM

My virtual visit was good. It was my first time using the tool. I see Dr. Mihailescu every 6 months; not every 3 month (questions actually didn't apply).

May 4, 2020 8:37 AM

My experience was good. The dr. is knowledgeable about her speciality. She has a great personality, works well with others, and is a good listener.

April 20, 2020 4:54 PM

Very good.

April 20, 2020 4:54 PM

Very satisfied.

March 24, 2020 7:55 AM

She is very professional!

March 24, 2020 7:55 AM

I had good experience with her!

March 23, 2020 5:55 PM

She ask questions but seems to only want short answers. I believe a Dr should listen longer to catch other clues from the patient that may be important to her diagnoses

March 20, 2020 4:19 AM

The doc has always treated me with care and I'm very thankful have my doctors, Doctor T_____ and Mihailescu.

March 10, 2020 9:50 PM

Dr. Mihalescu listened to my concerns and gave me a thorough explanation of what she though was causing my problem and what I can do about it. She also gave me options to consider if my problem persists.

March 10, 2020 9:50 PM

I felt it was a good experience.

February 25, 2020 10:44 AM

Very good - checked joints for inflammation.

February 18, 2020 2:48 PM

Visit was pretty much routine...was a bit put off having to wait to check in . There were 3 girls behind the desk and I had to wait several minutes to be noticed and checked in. (I was the only patient in the entire waiting room) General mood of the office visit was depressing...no one smiled. Just my opinion and observation.

February 6, 2020 11:27 AM

Very good, _____ free talk to her.

February 6, 2020 11:27 AM

Her nursing assistants, especially the one who draws blood is excellent, give her a raise.

February 4, 2020 10:07 PM

I am looking at seeing a reproductive endocrinologist and Dr. M has been incredible in her support, educating me and giving me the tools to make strong decisions. I appreciate how knowledgeable and diligent she is in her care for my overall health. I am incredibly appreciative to have her as my rheumatologist.

February 4, 2020 10:07 PM

the entire team at this office is tremendous from the front desk to the medical assistants and my doctor. I would recommend this care team to everyone.

January 30, 2020 7:27 AM

Excellent visit.

January 30, 2020 7:27 AM

Dr. Mihailescu was wonderful!

January 14, 2020 10:28 AM

I did not receive any services treatment nor advice. I was wanting to find out the cause of my neuropathy. The doctor said "I don't treat neuropathy." That's it - Appointment over - I waited two months for this appointment - Granted it is not the doctor's fault - However - She could have attempted to determine the reason for my neuropathy - I am done with the doctors and specialists at Advocate Christ AMC I've been treated here for around 5 years -

December 3, 2019 8:26 AM

We agree on any changes on my medicine; & dr. is very thorough.

December 3, 2019 8:26 AM

Dr. Mihailescu's office visits are good.

December 2, 2019 9:24 AM

Very good visit.

November 26, 2019 2:50 PM

good enough

November 1, 2019 7:00 PM

my experience was very good

October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

She was very much concerned always checking my bones if I have any pain. She makes sure I am taking my medicines.

October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

She is condescending and does want to know or care about anything other than what she is saying or how you feel.

October 15, 2019 7:00 PM

This was routine visit. Our initial greeting was a hand shake with warm smiles. Then, the doctor went to work doing what was expected.

October 11, 2019 7:00 PM


October 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Very professional & through.

August 13, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good experience.

August 8, 2019 7:00 PM

Doctor is very helpful, never pushy; assts. are extremely nice & thoughtful. However, some at front desk act like DMV employees, like they're doing you a favor by registering you. SOME not all.

August 7, 2019 7:00 PM

Provider doesn't really ask - questions reviews your chart comments on lab results & says continue on medications & will see me next time.

August 2, 2019 7:00 PM

The wait time is a fair wait time to be seen.

June 28, 2019 7:00 PM

very nice

June 14, 2019 7:00 PM

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Wasn't as helpful as I thought she would be.

April 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Mihailescu is a very caring doctor.

March 21, 2019 7:00 PM

January 31, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Mihailescu is very helpful - knowledgeable & truly caring. I am so glad I found her!

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

assistant nurses are excellent, doctor takes time with you, not in a rush. sometimes the people who sign you in can be a little crass like the dmv. they should learn some kind bedside manner- not all but some. nurse who does blood test outstanding .

January 28, 2019 6:00 PM

When I asked a question about a different medication. She responded 'it's a medication for rheumatoid arthritis.' No further response. I was interested in starting this medication. But now I am not on my current medication due to this provider.

January 26, 2019 6:00 PM

This provider stated that she couldn't give me another injection because it could damage my thumb. I appreciated her concern about the procedure.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM
