First class ENT. Effective. On-Time. He is efficient, but yet Dr. Pernas took time to sit and answer my questions and give me advice on how to prevent future issues.

Review for Dr. Pernas

After being discharged from the hospital, I had to wait three months to see Dr. Weitz. On the day of my appointment, I waited an hour and 45 minutes to be seen and eventually could wait no longer and was not seen by the doctor. This practice seems to have no respect for their patient’s time.

Review for Dr. Weitz

My husband and I went to our first visit and, after 3 minutes, we both loved him already. You cannot find a more friendly and comprehensive person, he is all you need for this beautiful and stressful process.
