It is hard to explain what a difficult experience I had dealing with Ionascu. Her manner was curt, unreceptive/unsympathetic and not helpful in the performance of neuro-psychological testing.(I am loath to use the term "Doctor" as she got a PsyD from a second-rate institution, "The Wright Institute", that will give anyone with enough time and money a degree that allows them to use that coveted term. I heard a psychologist with a PhD from the University of California, San Francisco called it the "Wrong Institute" because she said the students were practically innumerate, i.e., they could barely do math she taught in psych classes. A PsyD is nothing more than a high-sounding professional technician's degree with limited insight into the theoretical foundations of the psychology and physiology of neuropsychology. One of her websites claim she got her training at UCSF. One class, 2 days, maybe.)Briefly, her office setup for neuro-psychological evaluation is ergonomically poor with problematic equipment layout and rickety equipment and nothing to accommodate different body types. Some of the equipment is improperly positioned for the requirements of the evaluative instrument/test being administered. Some of the testing conditions lacked privacy and, potentially, in violation of health privacy laws. I could go on but suffice it to say that considering how much she charges for her services it ought to be better.I went to her because the only other people in the area approved to do the testing were booked far into the future and Ionascu could accommodate the timeline I was forced into by the FAA. Now I understand why. She is second-rate and if I had to do this again I would choose any other neuro-psych evaluator in the Bay Area (or travel long distances) instead of her even with the long wait the others might have.She may be good for some people but beware of her limited capabilities and unprofessional approach.
Dr. Ionascu was a great help to me and my family. Her professional, friendly approach put my son at ease during his testing, and her results were thorough and well-documented. Her staff have been extremely helpful working through the complexity of my insurance situation and scheduling even in the run-up to the COVID-19 crisis. Thanks, Dr. Ionascu!
I have been seeing her for a year and I really like her.she is professional,compassionate and is helping me in a lot of ways.I highly recommend her

Dr. Ionascu was a great help to me and my family. Her professional, friendly approach put my son at ease during his testing, and her results were thorough and well-documented. Her staff have been extremely helpful working through the complexity of my insurance situation and scheduling even in the run-up to the COVID-19 crisis. Dealing with my son's challenges has been a long and arduous trek, but having real data to guide our plan moving forward gives me confidence in how to direct his doctors, school staff and special ed team. Thanks, Dr. Ionascu!
Our law firm used Dr. Ionascu as an expert witness in a sexual abuse case. She was incredibly professional, helpful and knowledgeable. Her staff were also amazing and great to work with. We will use her again if the need ever arises.
Couldn't be more happy with the care and patience I received. My experience with Dr. Nicolle was great!
I've seen many therapists and Dr. Ionascu put in the most time and effort into helping me. I continue to see her due to her patience and intelligence. A 5-star rating isn't enough to prove how astounding she is.
Very professional and friendly staff! Wonderful office and Dr Ionascu is a great doc. Highly recommend.
Dr. Ionascu assessed my teenage son to assess him for his pilot's license. She was always prompt in answering messages, and was a pleasure to work with. Everything was well explained. We travelled from far away to see her, and I'm glad we made the trip!
Dr. Ionascu assessed my teenage son to assess him for his pilot's license as part of an FAA requirement. She was always prompt in answering messages, and was a pleasure to work with. Everything was well explained. We travelled from far away (about 1,000 miles) to see her, and I'm glad we made the trip!
Dr. Ionascu’s empathy, positive perspective, and professionalism have assisted me in my recovery from a concussion. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to receive care from Dr. Ionascu and to work with her hardworking staff.
When questioned about putting my daughter on medication and the reasoning behind it, she did not return emails. Completely unprofessional. She also stopped responding to my daughters texts about scheduling an appointment. Flaky and unprofessional. Don't waste your time.
Dr. Ionascu is a fantastic psychiatrist and I highly recommend her.
