Review for Dr. Weiner

I am in the same boat as the others. No communication, the office staff are a bunch of kids that have no clue, the MA has to be the most incompetent MA ever or the doctor could care less. He should retire because at this point is isn't helping anyone.

Horrible doctor. Wouldn't listen spent all of 3 minutes with me, wrote prescription and left. Didn't want any history of illness that would be relevant to a correct diagnosis. Uninterested, rude and degrading, should not practice medicine. I would give him zero stars!
