Ratings for Dr. Lory E. Baraz
I think Dr Borax, and her staff are fantastic!!! I have been seeing her for about 4 months now, and even though I have not been doing too well on the medications, she is willing to listen and try other treatments. I have been seeing one Dr. after another for 10+ years, and she is the only one who has helped. Thyroid problems stink, but I know with Dr Borax help I will get better. Thanks!
I LOVE Dr. Baraz! I've been seeing her for a while after having thyroid cancer. Contrary to the what the previous review states, she does not just treat based on numbers! Quite the opposite, really. If you are having issues she listens and is more than willing to switch you to a different medication. She is probably the least controlling Dr. I have ever met, she totally works with you to make you feel better. She will prescribe natural thyroid meds with no problem. The office calls with test results right away, no hassle. They also now have online appointment scheduling and a patient portal where you can get your results. Love this office.
OMG. Really. Unless you have something that is in a textbook - don't go see this doctor. Because if you don't fit into her "box" of things that she knows, forget it. She does not give a darn about you, only you're numbers. Very, VERY, old school. She needs to go back to school for patient treatment. She wants her money and wants you to get out so that she can get to the next patient to make more money. This is the type of doctor who has no idea of who you are or what you have been through because the ONLY way to treat anyone for ANYTHING is to look at their numbers. If you hire her, you will fire her. Don't waste your time or money.
The office staff is small, but friendly and helpful. They don't answer phones, but are prompt to return calls in 24 hours. The payment types (cash or check only) are a little archaic, but it must be easier for them to get paid for their effort. You won't wait long in the exam room for her and she'll spend as much time as you need. She was much more helpful, than my previous doctor, regarding my Hashimoto's Disease. I met with the in-house registered dietitian, who was a bit curt, but helpful nonetheless.
I have been going to Dr Baraz's office for years. They absolutely are the most accommodating office I have ever been to. Everyone is courteous and treats you like a "person" not just another patient that they have to get out quickly to get the next one in. I would give this office my highest recommendation. Very nice people who care.
I saw Dr. Baraz for thyroid issues. She refused to test for Hashimotos saying it didn't matter. I sought treatment from another Endo who was extremely helpful and I did test positive for Hashimotos. I would never seek treatment from this Dr. again nor would I recommend to anyone.
DR. BARAZ HAS TREATED BOTH MY HUSBAND AND MYSELF FOR OVER 10 YEARS -- SHE IS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT CURRENT MEDICAL UPDATES. SHE HAS A WONDERFUL BEDSIDE MANNER AND IS TRUELY CONCERNED ABOUT GETTING THE BEST RESULTS POSSIBLE IN TREATING YOUR CONDITION. HER STAFF IS FRIENDLY, THE OFFICE EASY TO FIND. SHE IS PUNCTUAL...BUT MOST OF ALL IS THE TIME DR. BARAZ TAKES TO TALK TO YOU AND LISTEN ABOUT YOUR CONCERNS, REVIEWING YOUR TESTS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU AND COMING TO THE MOST EFFECTIVE COURSE OF TREATMENT. I WOULD REFER HER TO ANYONE...I TRUST HER OPINION, HER KNOWLEDGE AND WE ARE VERY FORTUNATE SHE IS OUR DOCTOR.
Terrible appointment scheduling. You can never get a live person when you call. They don't take visa/mc, only cash or check. The doctor was friendly enough, but did nothing to help my condition. NO suggestions where to go for more help. Just follow up with her in 2 months. finally, I asked for labs and was told they won't mail them but to send a self addresed stamped envelope.
