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 50-60 minutes 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.

Wait Time

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 be doing 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.

I waited there for one and half hour to see doctor. What gets into my skin is that the office was not even busy! The office stuff not even said sorry for being so delayed. Doctor is fine with a little rush. Hate to see those doc who rush through everything. Do i recommend him may be if you are desperately needed.

Good doctor -- thorough and helpful. However, asking patients to wait an hour and a half because you generally "run late" is extremely rude in my opinion. Also, the receptionists there were extremely unprofessional. One of them was loudly complaining about a patient's call she received. The one after her literally took a personal call on her work phone and was YELLING into her phone that whoever she was speaking with was a "moron" among other inappropriate conversational topics.

The visit was excellent, I was tremendously pleased with the experience and Dr. Marans was excellent. I couldn't be more happy to have this physician. I would like to clarify that although the wait time was longer than usual, the consultation was top notch and he was one of the most attentive doctors I ever met. Funny too! Highly recommended.

When I got to actually see Dr. Marans I had a good experience, but they are absolutely terrible at scheduling. I had two appointments--an initial consultation and a follow-up--and both times I ended up waiting more than an hour. So if you really have no other choice, I'd say see Dr. Marans and prepare to spend a lot of time in his waiting room. But if you have options, you can probably find somebody who's about as qualified and will treat your time with more respect.

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 quality of 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.

Dr. Morans did seem thorough. He double checked everything on my chart, had the nurse (?) take a second set of notes, and I think he got the job done. He wasn't particularly warm, but he wasn't abrupt. He shared a personal story, and asked about my work. If he was less than effusive, it may be due to the long day he was having; my appointment was delayed 2 hours. He claimed the long wait was unusual, but from everyone else in the office and the fact that the receptionist suggests calling before the appointment to see if the doctor is on track with his timing, I get the sense delays are routine with this doctor. I wasn't in a hurry, but next time I'll bring more ways to fill the time productively. If anything, I do wish he had done more to understand why I have this problem, rather than just treating it, but given how common these things are, I respect his choice not to subject me to a bevy of tests.
