Ratings for Dr. Gyan Brard
This month is five years since my thyroid cancer diagnosis and total thyroidectony. I've been thru several endocrinologists since then without being very satisfied with them. About a year and a half ago, a friend of mine referred me to Dr. Brard. She had experience with him in the hospital where she works as an RN. So, I decided to try him. I'm so happy that I did. I now refer him to everybody I know who is in need of an endocrinologist. My most favorite thing about him is he listens to me. I don't feel rushed when I'm in his office and he doesn't behave in a manner that makes me feel like I'm just a number. He listens to what I say about my health and considers my ideas and suggestions. Sometimes he has gone along with my idea. Other times, he explains, in terms I can understand, why something isn't in my best interest. He always helps me understand what's going on. I also appreciate that he takes action right away when I have a health concern. I also like that they have a lab right in their office. Very convenient. Also convenient that he has ultrasound equipment right in the examining room and will ultrasound anything suspicious during a routine check up. I Highly recommend him.
I have seen Dr. Brard for 2 years for Type 2 Diabetes. I'm not looking for a friend, I'm looking for an experienced endocrinologist to help me manage my illness. Dr. Brard is very bright, knowledgeable, and really is paying attention when you visit him. He has helped turn a very bad situation to a better one. Not great yet, but trending that way. I find the office staff to be very good, but his assistants not so much. In fact, bad.
I am a new patient and totally dissatisfied with this doctor. He did not communicate clearly and left a lot of questions so I have called his MA 4 times trying to get some clarification. Very lax in getting back to me. Basic question, and an important one regarding my diabetes has not been answered yet. Asking my PCP for a better referral. Believe the negative online reciews as I would not recommend him or any of the doctors in this practice.
He doesn't listen to me and is very arrogant. I have so many symptoms that he doesn't even acknowledge or seen to care that I have. It seems I might know more about symptoms of thyroid disease than my Dr??? I guess you don't truly care or understand unless you go through it yourself. I've gone to him for 2 years and I think that's more than fair, I'm moving on. My advise, don't even bother!!
Most rude, disrespectful and condescending doctor I have ever met. He treats patients like pieces of meat or should I say dollar signs. He does not care about you. Run from this doctor. I put up with him for 11 years and finally moved on. FYI, I was a cancer patient who lost her thyroid.
Thanks to his supporting the agressive treatment I researched & asked for, I remain diabetes-free even 20 years after having been identified as being at high-risk. I SO appreciate the efficient way he communicates complex information, collects and processes all the info he needs in order to keep on top of the disease process. For an endo, being a nerd is a good thing! And he pays attention to PLENTY during the appt & exam, which you might not realize he's tuning in on.
After waiting an hour and a half past my appointment I finally got to see Dr. Brard. When I told him my symptoms he basically scoffed at what he considred were petty symptoms and said there was nothing he could do for me. He didn't take anything I said seriously which made me want to cry. I waited three months for this appointment and it was a total waste of my time.
