I'm very picky about my doctors. Dr. Weinshel was my third PCP, and I'm very happy with him and his staff. His NP, Paula Ferriera, is also knowledgeable and professional. I do not recommend this place if you wake up in a bad mood every day, and feel like ruining everyone's day you meet.

I was going through some health issues and doctor Weinshel neglected to tell me all of my results. He refused me from getting the proper test that needed to be done. I demanded to have them and he sent me a letter stating to find another doctor. I did and found out that I have kidney disease and possible need surgery to have my olavaries removed could be caner. Did you know that all he cares about is himself and his money. Every time a doctor books a MRI it goes against him.

Dr Weinshel was excellent, however, I will never go back because the gal who makes his appointments was rude, arrogant and condescending.
