Horrible doctor!! Unresponsible and careless!
First they keep cancel ur appt and dont bother at all to call u back after they get tests or other results. This doc had me as new patient, had to do Pap smear test. First they kept me for more then 20 min freezing in that room, undressed waiting for doc. After i asked 2ce the front desk lady, she came with an attitude. She completely was rude, didnt even read what i had on my file. She did the test showing not care at all, felt like a caw and then started to "sell" what she does.. and didnt even try to listen to me for what i was there... I shooted my question at the same time that i was dressing up, when she stopped me saying that she would come back to talk after ill be all dressed. Waited for 15 or more other min, got out asking again the front door lady telling that i was waiting for doc t.. she said that have to wait cuz doc was seeing other patient at that moment. And i do heard her. After 10 more min, the front desk lady comes by my room and says tgat i can go home cuz doc went home.... Shocked... She didnt care at all. But they just want u to go again and again so they milk ur money and insurance for co-pay and more.. and u get nothing. After that I rescheduled another day, and they told me again 1day b4 my appt that doc has other things to do. So had again rescheduled.. and they didnt call me to say for pap smear or mammo results.. after i called them to ask about, they told me to go there set up appt. and going back and forth for about 1 month with no results. And for more what u get is the attitude and ghe bad feeling how in the world smo could treat u like this, Un respectfully and careless! U r just a ticket that they get money from. PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS. Dont do this to even to ur enemies. D.D.

Highly unprofessional doctor and staff
Staff is extremely rude and incompetent. Dr was extremely rude as well and defensive. Complained to NJ Medical Board and insurance about her unprofessionalism and poor conduct. She seems to lack basic ethics and values when it comes to the medical field. She didn't seem too knowledgeable about the questions I asked her. She wasn't polite and seemed like she just wanted to rush through the appointment. Go to another doctor who knows what he/she is doing! Save yourself the hassle.

Good Doctor, but AVOID the Office!
Doctor is nice enough but her staff is terrible. If you call in, expect a 20+ minute wait for a simple question. Also, expect that your bills will all be submitted to your insurance incorrectly and they will show that you owe money for things that either didn't happen or should have been covered. The woman who does billing is extremely rude and will refuse to work with you, and the receptionists are next to useless.

Never again!! Horrible experience !
Horrible! They only accept cash and they gave me such a hard time. I waited over an hour, the staff didn't seem to know what they were doing. They gave me a hard time about my insurance , they ended up being wrong. They finally called my daughter in to see her , which was her first time seeing a gynecologist. My daughter was very upset after the appointment. She was have a few complications and was very nervous because it was her first time. She said the doctor spent 4 minutes with her and didn't even explain what they were doing to her. She felt very violated and not well taken care of. I will not be returning with my daughter to this doctor . So upset about my visit. Never again.

Doctor doesn't respect her patients
Some of the secretaries have attitudes. I was kept waiting for more than 40 minutes inside the doctors office with no information about where the doctor is so I went out to ask the secretary how long it would be and that I had another appointment I had to be at, she said give the doctor a minute. 20 minutes later still no sign when there was absolutely no one in the waiting room to be seen either. So I went out and asked again how long it would be and the secretary literally gave me a death stare at which time the doctor showed up. I guess the secretary complained to her because the doctor herself gave me an attitude. She informed me that I could leave if I wanted, I told her after waiting around an hour for her and her finally getting there, I would like to get her consultation. She said if waiting would be a problem for me she could give me numbers to other doctors. I said no thank you I already have numbers for other doctors and that it would be courteous to at least INFORM the patient how long it would take and that the doctor would be with you in a minute. No apologies, no nothing. She talked over me, saw me quickly and then let me out. this is not the first time she has done this either. First time I had an appointment with her, I was her first appointment. She was late. I was kept waiting in the room with a gown on for 40 minutes. Again, no apology from her. I guess this doctor needs to learn to respect her patients. I will be informing other friends who go to her about my experience. I feel that, being a patient, I deserve respect which is far out of Catalina's range. Also, when I went to the pharmacy, to which she had supposedly called my Rx's into, she had missed one completely. I had 2 prescriptions. I had to call her secretary and inform her to please make the call again for the prescription and she said she would call me back. It's been 3 hours, and no call back. I will be posting this review elsewhere too to keep patients informed about what kind of a doctor they are going to.

Been here 3 times in last month, Short wait time, understanding Doctor, nice nurse staff, just lots of long black hair on the floor in every room. It seems that their janitorial service or whoever cleans the office floors & bathrooms needs better skills!

There are much better doctors out there
She chose to do labs that she never told me about and I got a $300 bill for "exploratory" services. Office never followed up on results of the labs despite numerous phone calls. Very unprofessional and seems money hungry.

caused me great pain and embarassment
the first appt i had with dr dinu and she was doing vaginal check she burst out laughing at me. i was mortified. the second appt i had an IUD placed. she never explained the procedure and caused me excruciating pain for days. the third appt she ripped the IUD out and stated i needed a hysterectomy for birth control. this woman needs to have her doctor license revoked

Dr. Dinu is the worst, most unprofessional doctor I have ever had to deal with. She diagnosed me with cervical cancer last year. I wont bother going into a long rant about her horrible bedside manner or lies she told me about my diagnosis, I'll stick to the worst bits. After doing a cone biopsy I was in a lot of pain. I asked for an earlier appointment, which was unavailable. When I went in for my check up they wanted to do a vaginal ultrasound, and when I said that didn't sound right they checked and saw that I was put in for the wrong appointment. Dr. Dinu could not be bothered to see me and had them reschedule me for the next available appointment... 2 weeks later. I was in a lot of pain and fed up with her crappy attitude so I made an appointment with another DR. Thank goodness because I had a massive infection. 6 months later at my next follow up I am told that Dr. Dinu did not remove all the cancer. For 6 months the cancer sat there and grew. Not so much as a phone call to let me know I wasn't cancer free. I'm scheduled for a hysterectomy later this month, I'm just glad it's not worse. I could be dead.
