I had a great first appointment with Dr. Marans. He is a wonderful doctor - listens to concerns and it's clear he has a wealth of knowledge & expertise in his field. I feel relieved and confident in the care Iwill receive. His office is well maintained and his staff is friendly and helpful. The wait was not that long - and it's unrealistic for anyone to expect to be seen right away an ANY doctor's office in 2018. Highly recommend Dr. Marans!

Didn't really ask me about my experience with the condition. Instead, went straight to discussing potential surgery for a relatively minor condition without adequately exploring other options. Somewhat paternalistic with his explanations.

For a first time visit Dr. Marans and his team were great. They expected me when I arrived, had my paperwork ready. Walked me through what would happen and what I'd need. Dr. Marans had a great bedside manner; in lighthearted fatherly way. He explained with enough detail what was relevant and what the next steps would be. I'll definitely recommend him.

MD Marans was very merticulas with his note taking and informative on the reasonsfor my symptoms. A good listener and confident in his assessment without any arrogance.

Never again.. I like Dr Marans, he seems experienced and thorough and if he could handle a professional schedule and manage a professional office, I would have been glad to return and recommend. However, I will never again return given thecontempt shown for his patients' time. On my last visit (last year), I was on time, waited 45+ mins, was told "another hour", returned, told "another hour", etc until it ended up being over THREE HOURS wait for a 10 MINUTE appointment with never more than two people waiting the whole time. I had to miss a client meeting and other commitments; it was embarrassing and unprofessional. Needing to see him again and assuming last time was a fluke, I made an appointment, notified his office I was running 5-10 mins late, was told "no problem just come". Upon arriving, was told to expect a 40 minute wait. At the 40 minute mark, I was then told to expect another 1:20 wait - with the same two patients ahead of me. Again turning what would have been a 10 minute appointment into hours of wait time - all unplanned, seeming a total surprise to the office, and they could not care less. I canceled at that time and left. Take a look at the other reviews - this is not just an occasional occurrence, this is common practice for Dr. Marans' office. This is a throwback to 1950's style medical practice, no longer acceptable with modern scheduling, communications and frankly more balanced respect between doctor and patient. If the doctor were in surgery, if emergencies arose, if some critical situation with a patient - of course we have to respect these circumstances. But a lack of forethought, communication and simple respect for patients makes my frustrating and wasteful experience and that of so many other reviewers the norm, not the exception.

i very much like and respect Dr. Marans, He is knowledgeable, quite personable,funny, and candid. But if you call in advance (as advised) and are told by the front desk that he is running on schedule and then you wait 50-60minutes to see the doctor, as someone with a full time job, I find that irritating, especially if it has happened before. But hey I keep seeing him so I guess that is the best testimonial.
