Patient Comments (2)
in New Paltz, NY |
I thank God every day that I met this doctor. He was the FIRST doctor out of many in 6 months to do the right thing and take a sonogram of my thyroid along with bloodwork. I have been suffering every day and was told by many doctors it was anxiety, one of whom tried to prescribe me zoloft. Turns out I have Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism after Dr. Barandes looked at my thyroid and got my bloodwork back. Dr. B is incredibly sweet and cares SO much about his patients. Have never been treated so well.

I saw Dr Barandes for YEARS and never understood the negative reviews until today. His rude comments left me in tears. It's as if he has a Jeckyl/Hyde personality. Today he was cold and insensitive. I asked him one question about weight gain and my hypothyroidism and he became very critical. He told me that I didn't have the discipline to lose weight & that I didn't want it badly enough. I go to a trainer 3x a week and utilize a nutritionist. He told me to look in the mirror for real help.
