Best pediatrician we have ever met.
We are going to miss you Dr. Antonescu!
Dr. Antonescu is a wonderful caring doctor.
shopped around for a doctor. this provider has been the most experienced compassionate provider
I love my daughter's doctor, she's kind and interacts with my daughter, she listens and always explains her medical opinion. I also love the receptionist, she always remembers my daughter's name when she sees her, and is very kind and respectful.
She is very knowledgeable but seemed rushed through the appointment. We are used to our pediatrician being more thorough and taking their time with us.
Excellent service! I like that the doctor and staff speak to the patient (my son). I was present during appointment, but it is important to me that the doctor asks my son questions. I'm available for clarification if needed.
Dr. Antinescue has been wonderful to our family. She has provided care for my children since they were born.
I have used Dr. Antinescue's office since my children were born. She and her staff are wonderful.

dr Antonescu is the best
Dr. Antonescu has provided excellent healthcare to both of my children. They both are very comfortable talking to her and value Dr. Antonescu care and advice. As a parent, I am extremely happy with the excellent care she has provided to my children.
Dr. Antonescu somehow balances expedience and attention. I love her. My children love her. My nieces and nephews love her.
always a long wait in the lobby. my biggest issue with that particular office is too many patients at once. long waits and occasionally she seems rushed to see more. still a good pediatrician though.
I respect this doctor and appreciate her thoroughness. We did, however, had to wait 1 HR 15 minutes to see her.
sick call went perfectly
Dr. Antonesque is great Doctor! She is very intelligent,caring and compassionate. She has always been attentive to my son's medical needs and also our needs as parents with a sick child. My son could not have a better pediatrician! I have great respect for Dr. Antonesque and am grateful to have managing my son's healthcare.

We love Dr. Antonescu but the wait time to see her is too long. It took a long time to be seen and took the staff awhile to gather their information to be ready for her.

Dr Antonescu is a kind patient doctor. she listens to my concerns as a parent! she always gets my children in same day when i call when they r sick!
my son's primary care doctor seems to be competent but has far too many patients. our appointment was for 3:45 and there was not an empty seat in her waiting room, which caused us to wait almost an hour for our visit.
This is an incredible establishment.

Donia Antonescu has been the pediatrician for my children for many years. she is a top-notch physician who cares and always responds in a timely manner any time you call her, day or night. I can't think of one thing I could suggest she do better. she and her staff are wonderful and I feel blessed to have her on our side helping me make care decisions for my children. iIn my opinion, there is no better pediatrician in Western Pennsylvania that Donia Antonescu.
I have taken my children to dr. antonescu for their whole lives and I always have a good experience.

Doina Antonescu is an excellent doctor and has always provided my children with excellent care. she is always helpful and understanding!
Dr. Antonescu is by far the BEST pediatrician EVER!! She takes time to get to know both my kids and enough about our family to understand us as well as our circumstances when our kids our unwell. Dr. Antonescu is thorough and asks questions-while listening to the history of when an illness began! Dr. Antonescu is a wonderful doctor-with amazing bedside manner! We would never go anywhere else!
we wouldn't go anywhere else
Dr Antonescu and her staff are very courteous and listen to what we have to say before asking another question.
we couldn't be happier with doina and her staff! they are exceptional women who clearly show love and compassion for my children every single time we're there. I couldn't ask for a better doctor or staff! At four, my daughter looks forward to going to the doctor! they all know her by name, just as she knows all of them by name. they have created an atmosphere that is warm and welcoming to her. hands down, they are the absolute best!!!
I switched to Doina Antonescue right after my son was born she was the ONLY ONE who listened when I said he was having issues with his formula! She got us in and got him checked IMMEDIATELY, turned out he had severe acid reflux and was prescribed Ranitidine in every bottle and Alamentum!! Thank God for her!! She ALWAYS listens to all my concerns and questions and NEVER EVER makes me feel rushed or stupid for any question I ask thats why we stayed with her and switch whatever we need to, shes an actual trustworthy doctor and she has said on several occasions that I know my child best, that even if they arent exhibiting the symptoms that I describe at the time of the visit she LISTENS and that is INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT to me!!
love this provider .. would love to have a seperate area for sick kids aways from healthy kids for well visits
Dr A is the best she is always concerned with my children's over all health and excited for the accomplishments they achieve in anything
all great experiences!
Dr Antonescu and her staff are always very pleasant, helpful and courteous.
For the most part, I am happy with the care I receive for both of my children at this provider!
I never had any problems with ABC Pediatrics. Provider and staff always courteous, efficient and professional.
my son is overweight and we are working on our household to eat better. What I was upset with is how she told us my son was fat, his belly is Fat!! I was in tears when I left, because the look on my 10 yr old sons face!! She should find a different word other than fat!! I know my son will NEVER forget those words by her.
the office provides excellent service and care for my children! I adore Dr. Antonescu and her staff. They know and truly care about my children!!
