WARNING: Don’t go to Dr Baranoff!!!!

Horrible bed side manner, rude, doesn’t listen or have concern for the patients. He’s in such a hurry to get in and out of the room, he acts more like a robot than a human. He shows no interest or compassion for his patients. In fact, he’s intimidating. It’s all about the $ for him. He needs to retire because he obviously doesn’t enjoy his job. The staff mirrors him, they’re just as rude!

Zero confidence Dr.

So, the Dr. refused to see me if I did not sign the "Pre-treatment Arbitration Agreement". I just moved to Nevada and where I came from, this was not something I had ever even heard of. So, I asked the nurse to let me take copies of it so I could research it as I did not feel comfortable signing it without understanding what I was signing. After talking to a lawyer, I decided that it was OK to sign and wasn't relinquishing any legal rights or anything sketchy. So I called back to reschedule the appointment and the nurse said the doctor still refused to see me even though I now agreed to sign the document. The screams of a fear of being sued and a lack of confidence in his abilities. Plenty of other doctors out there. The only thing that concerns me now is that the office has all of my personal information on file. I guess I can go request the documents back, but if they already put it in the computer, its just another place where my dats is spread out. :/

High qualified and well accomplished doctor, but rushed; office staff/nurses don't return phone calls, poor follow up.

I went to Dr. Baranoff for a urology issue a few times over 4 months. Office is always busy. The doctor was nice and professional, but seemed to be in a hurry, each meeting I had with the dr. was less than 5 minutes. If you have important medical questions for the dr, come prepared or you'll forget to ask during these fast visits. The office staff/nurses were nice, but they rarely return phone calls. I was referred to get a couple of tests, but it was very difficult to get the results since only the nurses can give them to patients at this office. Every time I called the nurse's extension, I got voicemail; the front desk will only take a message; it took 2 weeks to get the results.
