Ratings for Dr. Ioana Dumitru


Dr. Dumitru took over my care after my heart transplant. She has performed all of my biopsy procedures. She is very knowledgable and has very good to deal with. She is not, however, shy about getting on you if she thinks you are not following her instructions. I would highly recommend her to anyone with heart issues.
