Have you seen Dr. Lori Maran?
Posted on September 18th, 2016
I first came to Dr. Maran during a flare-up of a rheumatological condition I have. She was kind and caring from the beginning. She is knowledgeable and approachable an addresses my questions and concerns. She and her nurse have also spent an ample amount of time helping me sort through insurance issues. I have visited Dr. Maran several times now and she continues to provide great care and answers any questions I have.

I started seeing Dr. Maran for my RA and she has done an exceptional job not only explaining the disease state but has helped with navigating the medications involved with this complex disease.
Dr. Maran helped me tremendously

Dr. Maran is top-notch. No need to look elsewhere. I had another Rheumy and he was awful. I was in pain and it didnt seem to phase him a bit. "We must follow the med protocol." I left him and started up with Dr. Maran. No complaints. I'm pain free thanks to Lori.

Dr. Maran is the best. She was able to figure out what was wrong and prescribe a treatment that works wonders. Highly recommend her.

The coldest, most condescending MD I have ever experienced. She never smiled, nor reassured me. She diagnosed polymyalgia, and instead of explaining the condition, prognosis, or treatment, she handed me a pamphlet. Placed me on high dose of prednisone. Rambled off instructions and dosage. Upset, I forgot. No written instructions on discharge materials. My pharmacy had to call her office for instruction. When I called about continuing pain, shed written a comment for her office staff to read to me about use of narcotics (I did not ask for), and making an apt. with a pain management clinic, or my primary care MD. She never called to speak to me, or follow up on my care. I was left fearful of a diagnosis I did not know about, and feeling like a malingerer..looking for medication. What a terrible, insulting experience. Seeing how many of her clients are elderly, geriatric, I cannot imagine such an impassionate physician working with a group of people who deserve dignity and respect. Sadly, she is a young MD.

I am a health care provider in ICU, for 30 years. I found Dr. Maran to be cold, dismissive, uninterested in speaking with me about preventative issues such as diet with regard to inflammation, and exersize . She diagnosed a rheumatic inflammatory condition, and handed me a pamphlet..but did absolutely nothing to explain the condition, prognosis, or any treatments other than she was going to prescribe a high, long term dose of steroids. She placed me on a long regime of prednisone, and did not explain the dosing taper with me. When I got to the pharmacy, the prescription directions which she had written, said "take as directed". There were no notes regarding this, on the discharge summary which she handed me. The pharmacy had to call her office for clarification of the correct dosage taper for two months worth of medication. I called her office with regard to another rheumatiod condition which I had been treated for in the past, which I had neglected to discuss with her. The assistant who took my call, was supportive, kind, and thorough. She said that she would pass my information, and question on to Dr. Maran, and have her call me. It has been four days, and she has not left a message, or returned a call to me. There was no concern for any reaction, or emotion I might be experiencing, regarding this possible diagnosis. A most unpleasant experience. I am seeking help elsewhere, and would not recommend her to anyone.

I was referred to Dr. Maran by a patient. I have seen other Rheumatologists and have to say she is the BEST of the 3 I was treated by. This is the first time I have never waited to be seen. I have NEVER even sat in their waiting room!!! As for care, the staff is very kind & friendly. Dr. Maran is extremely caring and treated me as a patient not just a disease. others, I highly recommend Dr. Maran!
Not the greatest, but far from the worst.

My experiences with Dr. Maran has been pleasant. Her bed side manner is not the best but she seems to know her profession. I have visited her 4 times and each time is the same. You would think some kind of familiarity would build but it did not. She was the same with each visit. However, her diagnoses of my problem seems to be correct and I am feeling better. I just dread going to follow-ups because of her mannerism. She is not mean or anything; its just that she is all business, and doesnt have time to deal with anything emotional, which sometimes is a big part of the problem. If I could find someone else, I would switch.
Fabulous Front Office Staff

I am a new patient of Dr Maran's. I found her to be pleasant and professional. She was caring and I did not feel rushed at all. Her office staff is fabulous, very warm and friendly.
