Dr. Martin Barandes has the following 3 specialties

  • Nuclear Medicine

    Nuclear medicine specialists are doctors who have extensive training in the use of nuclear substances, like radiation, to diagnose and treat certain illnesses.
    These specialists perform diagnostic tests in which a small amount of a radioactive substance is injected into a vein, inhaled or taken orally by the patient. The radioactive substance then enables the nuclear medicine specialist to use a scanner to detect the radiation level in the part of the body being examined in order to create an image of it with a computer. The images tell the physician whether there are abnormal changes in metabolism which indicate whether a disease or injury is present. These tests are often used to detect cancer.
    In addition to detecting cancer, substances like radioactive iodine can be either injected into the blood stream or taken orally to fight cancer and other diseases. After being ingested, the substance is absorbed by the thyroid gland and abnormal thyroid tissues are destroyed.

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I saw Dr Barandes for YEARS and never understood the negative reviews, however the wait times were always insane. Today his rude comments left me in tears. It's as if he has a Jeckyl/Hyde personality. I asked him one question about weight gain and my hypothyroidism and he became very critical. He insulted me and told me that I didn't have the discipline to lose weight, or else I already would have. I work out with a trainer 3x a week and utilize a nutritionist. He told me to "look in the mirror" and it will tell me the truth. I was stunned at his behavior.

I CAN'T BELIEVE this guys is not in JAIL!!! I came to him about 13-14yrs ago for a regular thyroid check up - because i was getting sick with colds and flus a lot, and also had a persistent cough. I'm a former model from Russia - tall and blonde. NOW - read this!!! This guy tells me: if he does not remove my thyroid immediately, i will die in one year!!!! Without any tests, just looking at me! He looked a little too excited to see me, i should say, smiling in a sleazy way. Right away I went to get a second opinion, and another doctor did tests and told me there was NOTHING WRONG with my thyroid. 14yrs later, I'm still alive and well, without having a single thing done for my thyroid, and without ANY thyroid issues, at all.

Barandes is great !

My mother , myself and my sister have been seeing Dr. Barandes for years. We are all very happy. I am surprised to read all the negative comments. This Doctor has always been very professional and very nice to us all. Yes he does have a sense of humor so maybe some do not like that. I would and have recommended him to others who have also been happy. ANd the office has always been very accommodating to us. Karen especially is very nice.
