I was really happy with dr. Marinescu. When I found out I was pregnant with twins I was referred to a bunch of different obgyn's. I'm very particular about my dr's. The most important things I look for are they are easily assessable, attentitive and knowledgable. I don't want to just be a number packed into a 15 minute appointment with a nurse practitioner. Dr. Marinescu always met with me directly. He was flexible with appointments and even gave me his cell phones for after hours. More important, when I met with him I felt like he cared. He took extra time to research and answer any questions I had. Also he is one of the few obgyn's that will do the prenatal care and be there to deliver you. A lot of other dr's will just put you in a random rotation. There is one last bonus you get with dr. Marinescu. He has a very good bedside manner. On the day I delivered he came to see me 3-4 times before my c-section. Each time calming me and reassuring me. He really is a nice dr. I like him so much that I have decided to keep him as my regular obgyn from now on.

I am 100% satisfied with my experience with Dr. Marinescu! I would recommend him to any of my family or friends. This was my first pregnancy and he made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. The nurse is also excellent! She was always so sweet and friendly and remembered me whenever I called to ask a question. My appointments were always on time and if Dr. Marinescu had to reschedule due to another patient going into labor, I was always called before hand and given lots of options to switch. I was also very impressed with my experience with him while I was in labor/recovering. He personally came to check on my progress throughout the day (even in the middle of the night!). I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Marunescu! My husband and I hope to have more children and I will definitely return to Dr. Marinescu.

After months of abdominal pain and frequent trips to the bathroom I called my primary care doctor who said I needed to find a urologist/gynecologist. After a lot of research I chose Dr. Marinescu based on his credentials and amazing reviews. Even though his office is 125 mile from my home I knew this was the doctor I needed. I made the appointment, he ran a few test and explained to me I had a prolapsed uterus, which meant my uterus had fell and I needed a hysterectomy as soon as possible. I had the hysterectomy within a week and while still in the hospital I felt immediate relief and little to no pain. within a few days I was back to my normal routine (even though he told me to take it easy for 6 weeks) being a mom and grandmother that wasn't an option for me. He did such a great job I had almost no pain and felt amazing. I literally took only one pain pill. I would recommend Dr. Marinescu to everyone I know. His credentials speak for themselves. Upon meeting him his confidence, knowledge and his bed side manner are like none other. I have had other surgeries before and never had a doctor call and ask how I was feeling. I've never had a surgeon with his compassion and concern, all I can say is amazing, amazing, amazing!!!

Pregnancy is easy, only with the right doctor. I went to several doctors in Newport Beach before I met Dr. Marinescu. I’m thankful that I found a doctor who made it easy to establish a relationship with. Dr. Marinescu is incredibly knowledgeable and honest. He actually took the time to listen and give me detailed answers to all my random questions and concerns. His office impressed me as well, it is clean and modern, and it is perfectly located across Hoag Hospital. It runs smoothly with no waiting and I never felt rushed. I loved the online system, which makes it very easy to communicate with the doctor and access lab test results. The staff is amazing. Adriana was very friendly and helpful. Throughout my pregnancy I had some complications, and Dr. Marinescu and his staff, responded quickly and even helped me take care of the disability paperwork. I was closely monitored since, and then he rocked at the last visit! He explained the delivery process in great detail. I ended up having an emergency c- section, and he showed up at the hospital in a couple of minutes, which meant a lot to me. My son was delivered safely and Dr. Marinescu checked on us every day until I left the hospital. I can’t thank him enough for what he has done for me and my baby boy. He is simply the best. Highly recommended!

I am very picky with my doctors. I usually feel comfortable only when I am sure that my doctor is highly qualified, highly knowledgeable and approachable. Dr. Marinescu has all the high standards that will exceeds anyone's expectations. I highly recommend him.

Started seeing Dr Marinescu, when he took over the practice. He is very knowledgable, explains all options, and runs the tests necessary to back up his recommendations. Needed two surgeries, both completely resolved the issues.

Office staff is wonderful to deal with.

Would strongly recommend, he is actually taking care of my mom, daughter and sister! Says it all!

Dr. Marinescu was by far my favorite Obgyn! I have 4 babies (all csections) and found Dr.Marinescu 3 months before delivering my last baby...his office is very nice, warm, and has great staff who actually take time to say more than can you please hold,book appointment and hang up.. They are very flexible with rescheduling, and extremely organized with getting your medical history and tests.. Dr. Marinescu is very polite, knowledgable, down to earth and just genuinely cared about my health and well being... He was great at explaining things thoroughly and giving me pros and cons to then let me decide freely what I wanted. My csection went really well and he used surgical glue to close me back up,(which was a big difference from staples that were used by previous doctors) and is great for the minimal scar I have... He visited the hospital to check up on me every morning and even stayed a bit longer to really answer and any questions and concerns.. My husband was very observant of him during my stay and fell in love with his way of being,his practice and genuine concern... Which was very different from the previous doctors... Dr.Marinescu really does love the practice of medicine and you feel it when you are his patient...

I highly recommend Dr. Marinescu for obstetrics. I delivered a baby in July 23rd, he is the doctor since the beginning of pregnancy. His bedside manner is excellent, listen and explain the situation very well, his skills are second to none. I've heard that most OBs here don't do much ultrasound, maybe 2-3 times for the whole pregnancy, but he does it almost every scheduled visits and thank god he actually suspected oligohydramnios before it's too late. He saved a baby! His assistant is also very nice, she has such a nice smile it makes me so comfortable! Once again, I definitely highly recommend this doctor before anything else, he has a great personality.
