Verified Patient Reviews
She's the best! Willing to work with you and knows her stuff.
Love going there, Doctor and staff are great!'
Dr. Baraz watches out for her patients and comes across as being really interested to help.
I think she's an excellent Endocrinologist she is always up to date on everything. She ask questions, listens to my concerns and lets me know hers where my health is concerned. She has never tried to sell me anything, she' always straight forward and honest. What more can you ask for!
She is always very kind, and never puts you down even when you know you have made some bad choices.
Very caring and professional!
I found out today for the fisrt time that the whole reason my doctor has decided not to treat patients with growth hormone deficiency (which I am one) is because I wasn't coming in enough times for Dr. Baraz to tell my insurance company what they needed to know on my labs. This had never been communicated to me before today otherwise I would have made sure to come in when I needed to come in. Also, When I ran out of the medicine I had been taking for 14 years, they abruptly cut me off even though I had scheduled my regular annual appontment with them. Having said all of this, Carol, the front office person is pleasant and Dr. Baraz , although very matter of fact is pleasant as well.
Lory is the best out there!!! Very caring and compassionate and truly wants you to be successful.
When I brought up my concerns and told Dr. Baraz what symptoms I was experiencing, I felt like she dismissed me completely. Instead of trying to figure out what was causing my symptoms, she said I just need to exercise more and eat less and change the medications other doctors have prescribed to me, because that's what was causing my symptoms. When I tried to explain to her that I was already "exercising more and eating less," and had the calorie tracking data from Fitbit and MyFitnessPal to prove it, and that I had taken those other medications for years previously with no side effects, she ignored my complaints and repeated that I just needed to exercise more and eat less and switch my other meds. It was extremely frustrating that when I explained why her theory was most likely wrong, she just dismissed me. Luckily, I got a new job so I have new insurance. I immediately booked an appointment with a different endocrinologist covered on my new insurance. I would definitely not recommend Dr. Baraz.
pleasant, understanding, knowledgeable, answers questions accurately, organized, sensable

As always, my visit was great!
I was seen within 10 min. Dr Baraz really listens to your concerns and works out a easy to follow plan, to get you back on track.
I have been a patient of Dr. Baraz for many years. She is like sitting down with an old friend. Her manner is very comforting, but she is professional . She will take as long as needed to get your "problem" diagnosed and treated...never dismissing your anxiety. I do not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs a compassionate and professional doctor.
It's always a pleasure to see Dr. Baraz. Very supportive.
I think she is wonderful and so easy to talk to.
Pleasant encounter, Dr. Baraz listens attentively, is effecient and responsive to my concerns. Very clear and direct when providing information and/or recommendations. Her office staff is courteous pleasant and helpful. I've been her patient for many years and feel fortunate to have such a physician.
I think that she is an excellent doctor. She is intelligent, well-read and doesn't rush her patients in and out. She gives you time to ask any questions and voice any concerns you may have. She gave me an alternative to a medication I was taking that was ineffective. Now I am doing well. I would refer friends and family to her in a heart beat!
Dr. Baraz is thorough and knowlegeable. She explained how the medications I use work.
It is always a good visit, no matter what is going on Dr. Baraz always has a positive attitude and makes you feel good about things when you leave even if you need to work on something to get your weight down etc. you feel good about yourself when you leave.
The staff is friendly and professional. Dr Baraz is fantastic. Always straight and to the point, very professional with great bed side manner. Keep up the good work!!!
Love Dr. Baraz. Goes over test results, treatment program. Wish one day would have afternoon appointment times but that is minor issue. Dr. always so upbeat and answers any questions, never rushed.
Pleased would be an understatement. Dr Boraz's bedside manner is excellent, she is incredibly sharp and very receptive to patient concerns and ideas. She took time to answer my questions, create an action plan, get to know my unique needs and approach diabetes self-care and offered excellent insight and encouragement throughout the process. Today's new patient appointment was well worth the wait and I am pleased with the plan she helped set forth in motion. Thank you!!!!
I feel the doctor is very professional and knowledgeable. I am very happy with my experience.
Dr. Barack is non judgemental and understanding.
I have been seeing Dr. Baraz for more than 3 years. Although trying to contact the Office by phone requires leaving a message following a lengthy recording, I would never consider any other endocrinologist. She is thorough, knowledgeable, and provides excellent endocrine care.
She's great. Most doctors seem to run late - nice to know you can have your time if you need it - but she never runs overly late.
Great doctor. Easy to talk to.
Dr. Baraz is excellent!!
Dr. Baraz is an exceptional physician. She aims to treat the patient/symptoms, NOT just the bloodwork. Hands down the best Endocrinologist I've ever seen. I recommend her to everyone I know that needs an Endo. Excellent bedside manner, a wealth of knowledge and an incredible office staff that makes me feel welcome and appreciated each visit.
She's an excellent attentive doctor with a great bedside manner.
Dr. Baraz is the best! She is extremely caring about her patients and does everything she can to help.
Dr. Baraz asked me about the past few months and listened as I talked about the good stuff and challenges that I encountered. She recommended a new medication that would help me with my specific issues with my diabetes.
She's great. Punctual. Realistic about goals, but always encouraging you to do a little better next time.
Dr. Baraz always takes extra time and care. She goes above and beyond and physician I have seen to-date. I can't thank her enough for all of her help with my medical issues.
Really an excellent experience.
Dr. Baraz is a top-notch professional and goes out of her way to help out her patients. She keeps up to date on the latest diabetes treatments and takes a holistic common-sense approach to diabetes management.
It was thorough and pleasant. Dr. Baraz followed up with me personally with a phone call on the same day I was seen. It was great to actually hear from the doctor rather than an assistant.
Dr. Baraz is awesome and always willing to try new technologies.
Execellent in every way. In my opinion , Dr. Baraz is the very best in her field.
She always remembers you and what you last talked about! So important to feel close to your doctor.
Dr. Baraz is always welcoming and listens to any concerns or questions. Gives great feed back regarding test results, etc. Highly recommend her for such a caring attitude and availability when needed.
Great experience Dr and staff great! My granddaughter was patient and she felt very comfortable with no anxiety.
I presented with endocrine issues about 4 years ago and started seeing an endocrinologist (not Dr. Baraz). Ultimately, about 5 months into my care, I kept getting the runaround by my provider, and I made the switch to Dr. Baraz, who was attentive to my needs from day one. I recommend Dr. Baraz to all my friends and family who have endocrine or diabetic issues. She's thorough, knowledgeable, actively listens to patient concerns, and I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Fabulous Dr.! Intelligent, caring Highly recommend!!
Dr. Baraz is the best Endo in the valley and I've been to many!
She is excellant
Everyone there takes great care of everyone. From the front door, to the nurse and the Doctor, your in Good Hands
Dr. Baraz is so nice and so knowledgeable.
Dr. Baraz saw me for the first time today and I was not feeling well at all. She was very patient and treated me accordingly.
I thought that she was interested in actually helping me with a game plan to fix things rather than just having me take a pill and getting blood work done every 6 months just to charge me a co-pay and move on to the next patient.
Very personable, knowledgeable and professional.
Very professional and personable. Made me feel relaxed and comfortable. Gave me the impression that I mattered!

Lory and her team are the best!!!
I have been a patient of Dr. Baraz for about 4 years now. I find her to be very professional and easy to communicate with. She is one of the best physicians I have ever seen. I recommend her very highly.
Personable and professional
Dr. Baraz is extremely professional, courteous & knowledgeable. I love the way her office handles their business. If more doctors offices followed this model - our healthcare system would be in much better shape.
Amazing doctor! Definitely recommend. She took her time with me and addressed all of my concerns.
I made my appointment for 11:30 but the office had me down for 10:30. Not sure how that happened. I purposefully make late morning/ early afternoon appointments since I work evening shift.
Great visit as always ??
Great staff, everyone actually cares about you. I love this office and highly recommend.
She is very informative and answered all my questions.
I loved the technology used by the office. I love Dr. Baraz's professional, yet warm bedside manner. She is a wonderful doctor and I would highly recommend her!

Takes time with patient, seems genuinely interested, and is very understanding and thorough.
She seems very knowledgeable. I appreciate that she ran a bunch of tests and used medicine and science to create a diagnosis.
Great Doc! Pretty close to being on time. Not an alarmist, which I like the most!
Good, and she is trying to help me with my weight and my A1C numbers.
Dr. Baraz is an excellent physician and I highly recommend her. She is thorough and has a great demeanor. Excellent communication skills and very knowledgeable about her field.
Dr. Baraz takes my health concerns seriously and spends as much time as is necessary.
I like this doctor she listen to the patient concern. She gives treatment to the best interest. She is there always on my appointment not like other doctors sending their assistant and missing in action.
I always look forward to seeing Dr. Baraz
Felt confident she will take good care of me!
The care is not there! 5 to 8 minutes is not right. I didn't have a chance to ask any questions on how to treat my conditions with other methods other than yet another pill. Ok more or different pills, how about lets see how you can help me with making my condition improve other than MORE pills. I left in tears. Very cold and rude woman.
very friendly and professional office staff. very happy with Dr Baraz. took time and did not rush and answered all my questions.
The staff was very pleasant, treated me like a person, not a number. Dr. Baraz was very approachable and thorough. I am extremely pleased with the whole experience.
excellent physician -I trust her, how often can you say that?
I can always count on everyone there to work with me to continue to be in good health.
I learned a great deal about my condition and felt this was a very good visit.
Dr. Baraz does an excellent job of assisting me, advising me and supporting me. I am so appreciative of her care!!!
Lory and her staff are really nice.
Quick and painless
To say I am thrilled with my first visit with Dr. Baraz would be an understatement. I felt that she took the time to listen to my medical history, my concerns and symptoms. She was very knowledgeable about my health concerns, and treated me like she was a partner in my treatment. Her bedside manner was friendly, and her office staff was incredibly happy and personable. I would highly recommend her (and already have!) I left the appointment in tears of joy, and told my husband that I felt like I had finally found my "Dr. House" that looks at the whole person, history, symptoms, and not just blood work results.
I've been seeing Dr. Baraz for about a year now, She is great, and her staff is equally good. I highly recommend.
Staff is very friendly. Dr. Baraz is great at explaining everything. She really listens to you and cares what you have to say.
It was wonderful. She is very personable and will go out of her way to help me get answers.
Dr. Baraz is really on the ball. She put her finger right on the cause of my problems and gave a clear path of which problems to fix first to reveal and/or relieve underlying problems. She remembered my daughter and her diagnosis from 2 years ago. With Dr. Baraz you are in very capable, concerned hands. She is a decent human being who treats you like one, too.
I find Dr. Baraz to be professional yet friendly, well informed and realistic. I highly recommend her.
Friendly and prompt service! I like her place! Monika
Lory is the best!!!
Dr. Baraz takes the time to talk and listen to you. She is understanding in not requesting more tests than necessary. She sticks with the minimum amount of medication.
I have complete confidence in Dr. Lory Baraz!
Very mindful of all aspects of health conditions. Works well in conjunction with other physicians.
Lory was very nice, asked questions, reviewed my paperwork, knew where to go with the problem. Listened to me. Very professional yet seemed to care about the patient. The entire office (dressed in jersey's ;-) ) was very nice. I would recommend this office and Dr. to anyone. Thanks. Hoping the prescription helps with my problem.
She cares about how I am doing.
As always, Dr. Baraz is very knowledgeable.
She seems too busy and in a rush to finish our visit. I left feeling like what I had going on didn't really matter. I left with questions I would have liked to have had answered. Not the case. Getting through to them and locating the office was like trying to find the CIA. I feel sorry for those who do not know how to use or have a computer to get through to this office. They do not answer their phone and you cannot leave a message. To say the least it was very exhausting.
Dr. Baraz always makes one feel like you are her special patient and her main concern. She takes the time to speak with you, obtain more details regarding what is going on in your daily life. All this listening attention is in order to make a full and complete treatment plan. She lets you know you can call if you need her. You leave a message for a call back. Would be nice to speak with a real person at times.
Ive been seeing Dr Baraz for years. She is very caring and thorough.
I went in very upset and left very happy with hope. Dr. Baraz said she is going to help me figure out what is wrong. :)
Dr. Baraz is professional, efficient, kind and interested in her patients. She respects us. She remembers what has gone on before with your health and checks with you on how it is going now. She gives you time to talk/discuss your health issues and questions about medications and alternatives. She keeps current on them as well. I have nothing but the highest regard for her as my doctor and I respect her abilities completely. I would recommend her wholeheartedly to everyone who needs her expertise.
Everyone there is nice and good to me!
She nails things. Knows her stuff and gets it done. Highly recommend her!
Went in for blood work follow up.
Very knowledgeable, talks with you not at you. Very pleasant experience.
Dr. Baraz is the best doctor I have ever been to in 78 years. When I first went to her after thyroid cancer surgery she said that she "would take care of me as if I were her father". She has done just this. She is patient centered and takes the best possible care of me. She recommended radioactive iodine therapy after my thyroid surgery and I have been cancer free for many years. She never rushes me during an appointment and is extremely thorough. Dr. Baraz is, simply stated, an outstanding member of the medical profession.
She is knowledgeable, professional and kind. Very pleased with her care!
Dr, Baraz is a highly skilled professional. I feel very fortunate to have been treated by her. She does all the necessary tests to diagnose very complex issues and does an excellent job of explaining everything to her patients. She spends plenty of time at her appointments. She is also very conservative and has the patients best interests as a priority. She has called me at home with test and lab results. A very rare doctor.
Dr. Baraz really LISTENS. You truly can't say that about too many doctors anymore. To most, we patients are just another number in a sea of patients. Not the case with this doctor. She always wants to be aware of other health issues aside from the reason for a visit to her practice, and in that, it truly helps put the puzzle pieces together for various issues that may or may not be related to one another. I would recommend Dr. Baraz to anyone in need of a good endocrinologist!
She listened to my symptoms and was very thorough.
I like her style... Simple and not aggressive but realistic in her treatment. She has a nice positive outlook and very encouraging!
The visit was great! Dr Baraz made me feel very comfortable.
I felt Dr. Baraz was professional and very thorough. I did not feel rushed, not impatiently dealt with. I would recommend Dr. Baraz highly to anyone seeking her services.
Excellent. Confident, knowledgeable. She tells you how it is in an easy to comprehend manor. Answered all my questions and made sure I was on the right track. Fast and to the point. Highly recommended.
Dr. Baraz reviewed concerns and previous blood work with me. She proposed several strategies and explained her approach. My appointment with her confirmed the value of seeing a specialist. I know I'll be feeling better as a result of her recommendations.
Great doctor been going to her for years.
She was very willing to help me and she listened to what I had to say. She seemed I terested in my overall health
I really like Dr. Baraz. She looks at you as a whole and not trying to treat one specific issue. She explains everything well.
