Go there every 3-4 months for the last few years. Wasn’t fond of him in the beginning but that’s because he made me own my diabetes. I appreciate everything he has done to make it easier to handle this burden of being T1 diabetic. He understands and was able to congratulate me for taking care of myself but has no problem letting me know where I need to correct or watch. I absolutely love his staff. They are very kind and helpful and so friendly!!

Best Dr. in his field. Able to correctly diagnose others overlooked.Honest and frank about everything he says & feels. 100% confidence in treatment and recommendations. He is one of many exceptional specialists I see, but he is the #1 doctor who has saved my life and health. I have seen him since 2010 and every year since, on my birthday I owe him thanks for still being alive, happy, and better health. If you insist on a dr. who comes in smiling, shaking your hand-dont see him. He respects patients who educate themselves and are prepared. And also, HE ACTUALLY DOES SMILE AND SHOWS HIS HAPPINESS, when you followed his advice and the outcome is positive. IF you want to improve YOUR HEALTH and lifestyle, this is only doctor to see in his field. Cheers, to him and all his patients, Patricia

referred to Dr. Barhoum by my primary care physician. This Dr. was so rude & nasty right out of the gate. He came in the room sort of arrogant His responses to us were nasty. He acted like he was upset with us in some sort of way. He played down my health issues. He told us that he didn't work for Condell or part of the Advocate Group. He appeared to get angry at the thought of being part of Condell or the Advocate group. Voice was raised. I don't think we'll be back to see him. He really need to work on his disposition and how he communicates to patience seeking his advice/assistance. He is not the only Endocrinologist in the pot. Just nasty. His responses were defensive and nasty, nasty, nasty. Change your attitude Dr. Maan Barhoum. Not impressed, not happy...…..

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Barhoum’s for at least 7 years. If you’re looking for a doctor who will sugar-coat a diagnosis, he’s not the doctor for you. However, if you want an intelligent, knowledgeable and no nonsense physician, then I strongly recommend him. He carefully reviews blood work, and explains the results, asking if there are any questions or concerns. His office staff is cordial, helpful and remembers the patients. I feel very confidant with him.

Dr. Barhoum is helpful, efficient, attentive, and trust worthy. His office staff is really organized and helpful. After seeing about four different endocrinologists prior to coming to him, I definitely feel like he is the most qualified out of all my previous doctors. He may have a more direct bedside manner, but that does not take away from his skill and qualifications.

My ins changed & I had to find a new endocrinologist. I'm a type I diabetic with hypothyroidism & having quite a bit of issues with erratic blood sugars. Dr Barhoum is amazing!! I can't say enough good things about how he's working so closely with me & the progress I've made under his care. His staff is just as amazing! The first time I walked in, they treated me as if I've been a patient there forever!

My brother had been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism so he was reccomended to Dr.Barhoum. from the minute we walked in he was rude to us and definitely acted very cocky and condescending. He diagnosed my brother with graves disease, and urged my brother to get his thyroid removed immediately. We got a second opinion from another doctor and turns out he didn't have graves disease and it was just a hot nodule. He didn't even need to get his thyroid removed. Please do not go with Dr.Barhoum.

Very pleased with this office. Staff is on point very efficient. Doctor is great I have seen results and I have only been in twice. Took me a while to have finally found a doctor I trust. You can tell that the staff had been there awhile and that they all have a good relationship. Give him a change don’t go base on negative reviews.

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. Dr is the best!

ZERO STARS!!! I was shocked at how this doctor treated me in the hospital. First of all, he didn't give me enough insulin, I shot up to over 500, then he gave me too much. He doesn't listen to you, He didn't go by my regime at home, he almost over-dosed me on insulin then came in screaming at me for refusing too much insulin. He was awful, What a terrible bedside manner. I'll never go the this hospital again, for this is their regular endocrinologist there. Horrible experience.

If I could give him zero stars I would! Dr Barhoum has no bedside manner whatsoever! He has no compassion and is quite rude.. I have seen him a couple of times and he DOES NOT listen or discuss..he dictates! I am cancelling any future appointments with him immediately. I advise you to seek medical help elsewhere!!!

Dr B was 45min late and didn't even mention it. Worst bed side manor I've seen yet. He's unempathethic and acts like he cares less. He was dramatic and negative. After seeing him, I made an appointment with a different Endo due to a lack of trust in Dr B. All in all, Dr B was a waste of time and money.
