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.

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.

Dr. Marans treated me for a urology issue that I was having for over 1 year. After seeing 2 dermatologists, 1 primary physician, and a neurologist he diagnosed and treated me for my condition. Dr. Marans has greatly improved my qualityof life and I can honestly say that my good days outweigh the bad. Thanks Dr. Marans for being patient with me and always being a phone call away.

As per some of the other reviews, I waited almost an hour from my appointment time to be seen (pro tip: first time patients will have to fill out quite a number of detailed questionnaires and forms, so expect to bedoing this for the first 5-15 minutes after you arrive depending on your medical history) but it was totally worth it! Dr. Marans is energetic and efficient but pays attention to details and is very patient with questions and explanations. I had struggled with frequent infections for years before thinking of making an appointment with a urologist and Dr. Marans clearly explained the reason for the infections (I had previously received at least three different conflicting and unsatisfactory explanations from various general doctors), provided an easy solution and took the extra step of doing some quick ultrasound examinations to make sure the infections were not stemming from a more serious issue. I am highly optimistic as to the results of the solution, but if for some reason it does not, his office has already provided both a back-up plan as well as a follow-up exam date. Would highly recommend Dr. Marans as a urologist.

Doctor is fine with a littlerush. Hate to see those doc who rush through everything. Do i recommend him may be if you are desperately needed.
