Eventhough the sonogram revealed that I had thyroid disease, he refused to prescribe medication. He suggested that I do not eat after 6:30p. I explained to him that I sometimes go without food but continue to gain weight. Still waiting for a return call regarding my results from blood test...

As a first time patient, I waited over 1 hour to see the doctor but I arrived on time for my appointment. Also after testing he just said come back 2 months for more tests without any treatment recommendations in the meantime

Dr Barandes was wonderful -the wait was all worth it. I don’t mind waiting to see a great knowledgeable dr who takes time with each patient and is thorough in diagnosis and explanation. In fact so many drs rush patients outwithout much explanation.Dr Barandes is a priceless diamond-so hard to find but I’m so glad I found him. He’s great and so is his wonderful staff such as Maria and Karen. Thank you - see you 9/12 at 11

I did not have a good experience with Dr. Barandes. He ran some tests and said he would call back with the results and send in an update on my prescription. He did not call or send the prescription. Luckily, anold doctor issued me a refill. I called the office and asked to speak with Dr. Barandes but was put on hold again and again until finally a nurse just refilled my old prescription. I have no idea if the doctor ever looked at my results to see if the dosage needed to be changed and now will see another doctor for that because I don't trust him. He said over and over that he had decades of experience. That's no good to me if he doesn't follow up!

Dr. Barandes is such a kind, caring and wise doctor. He was in no rush with me and that makes any patient feel important. I am so happy that I went to his office. All the personnel is very nice. Iloved that he takes care of labs and sonogram right then and there. I loved my first visit. Thank you very much Dr. Barandes.

This doctor is so caring. I don't enjoy going to the doctors, who does? But I would completely recommend him. Dr. Barandes is a patient and understanding man. He clearly knows what he is talking about and he walks you throughstep by step with explanations of the care he is providing and his conclusions. His staff is great, yes it is my first meeting with them. But I've been to other places and you can tell by their attitudes that he is a great doctor to work for.

I had an excellent experience at Dr. Barandes' practice, much welcome after my terrible experience with my last endocrinologist (including, but not limited to, 3-hour waits, forgetting who I was at a 2-week follow-up, high copays, a dirtyoffice, and simply writing off my extreme fatigue as "working out too much"). Dr. Barnades gave me a thyroid sonogram, which I haven't received in my course of care thus far, and explained to me what my thyroid looked like compared to a "normal" one. Bloodwork was done on-site by one of his medical assistants, who was excellent. He took time to answer my questions and even provided me with recommendations for an ophthalmologist, primary care doctor, and OBGYN, all with names and addresses from memory. When I remarked at how thorough he was in examining my thyroid and giving me recs to other doctors, he said that it is his "job to be an advocate" for his patients. I left the clean, centrally-located office feeling respected, listened to, and taken care of.

Dr. Barandes is an excellent Endocrinologist (Thyroid specialist) - He is very thorough and finds out things that other doctors don't. I went 13 years with no thyroid function, all other doctors saying that my thyroid was normal, until I sawDr. Barandes. He picked up on the problem right away. Thanks to him, my life got back on track, I felt so much better, and eventually I even lost over 100 lbs. This doctor really knows what he is doing.

Zocdoc didnt tell me he only specializes in thyroid, so it was pretty much a waste of time as that wasnt why i wanted to see an endo. That being said, did not hold against him as zocdoc should make clearer.Nonetheless, he insisted i get my thyroid checked and said "everyone i see has a thyroid problem" and while that may be true not everyone needs to see a doc for it especially when they arent concerned about it and have no related symptoms. I felt he was out to get my $$ and also the receptionist was pretty rude on the phone and a bit clueless in person. I scheduled a 3 month follow up for my "benign thyroid follow up" simply because he insisted i do so (despite not needing to do anything for it) and to get out of there faster, however i will be canceling such appointment as it was a waste of time and money.

This was my first visit with this doctor, and by just touching my throat he made the diagnosis. Without even waiting for my blood results he already sent the prescription to the pharmacy. Later that day, some of the blood resultscame, but not all, and he confirmed his diagnosis. This doctor wouldn't even wait until my blood results were back to diagnose me and put me on medication. He is the very reason nobody trusts doctors anymore, because they are hesitant to put you on medication instead of looking deeper to what caused it. He told me I was going to get my condition because it runs in my family and that there is absolutely nothing I can do about it. Do yourself a favor and find another doctor.
