Ratings for Dr. Maan Barhoum
Reading some of these reviews and people are so sensitive. I guess I needed a doctor that needed to tell me how I was doing bad to make me understand that I needed to change my life style and I did and I couldn’t be happier with results. Thanks Dr Barhoum and staff is great too!
I want to say THANK YOU to Dr B for saving my life! After gestational diebetes, my health took a turn for the worse. I couldn’t control my sugar levels and gained 30lbs in just one year. I exercised and ate healthy but nothing I did seemed to work. Now a year later, I lost 30lbs and went from a size 18 to a size 12. Dr B guided me and held me accountable! He wasn’t there to sugar coat anything, it was either I change my lifestyle or be diabetic. If you’re ready to change your life and put in the work- Dr B is the best!
Went to him twice first time with him real ruff second time my aim was only 6.2 and yelled at me about my diet do not want to see him ever again and he's lucky I didn't not lose my temper do not see him you won't be happy I'm switching doctors
The staff is courteous and friendly but woefully lacking when it comes to working with my pharmacy on simple prescription renewals. I always attempt to schedule either early morning or early afternoon appointments so wait times are not an issue. I really cannot speak to what it's like at other times of day. The doctor took some getting used to. I've been seeing him for several years now, and as other reviewers have noted, he's pretty blunt if you're failing him, and yourself, as a patient. I, too, have accepted it as the kick in the tail I deserve and need. There's no question the man knows his stuff. He's also downright friendly when I achieve good numbers. When I started with him my A1c readings were in the 9s. I've gotten them down into the low 6s and have actually got him smiling at me. It might seem corny, but I liken his manner similarly to a parent giving a child tough love. If you can accept that, he's a helluva doctor. PLS
Staff is great I have to disagree with some comments I have been following up with doctor since he open in 2007. If I'm not mistaken the current staff has been working there for 2-3 years those girls are sweet,nice,polite, and very efficient. I have needed pre-auth left and right and never has the office failed on me. There are time when I have ran out of medication and they told me that the pharmacy will over write 30 days supply insurance approval until the review process go through. The doctor is great we clicked since day one and yes he has yelled at me not in a bad way but it has been my fault for letting my number get out of control when I got diagnosis with type 2 diabetes a1c was 13now I'm happy to say we keep it under 7. Don't let some comments stop you from giving him a chance.
Dr may be a little blunt, not best bedside manner...girl at desk not helpful at getting prescriptions preauthorized by insurance, my pharmacy as well as myself has talked to the receptionist numerous times to send info for precertification, she keeps telling me it was just sent over from pharmacy-truth is the dr said it would be sent over for precert even though he could not guarantee it when the rx was initially written 5 months ago, from what i have been told today this rx has not yet been sent to insurance for consideration so in the mean time every month i pay out of pocket for this and my insurance has never once recieved a request.so almost 1000.00 out of pocket it is getting extremely upsetting. i dont expect to be best friends with the dr so i dont really care if he is blunt as long as he does his job and this drs care for me has been fine...but when it comes down to faxing over a precert request sounds like training needed on faxing a piece of paper.
