Went to Dr. Wei's facility. First and foremost her Assistant is a pleasure. She is very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Wei takes the time (1 hr) to review your labs and referring physician's findings to help put you at ease. She is efficient and knows the Nephrology profession very well

I recommend Dr. Wei because she is knowledgeable, friendly and is careful. I was nervous about my kidney problems but she was really good about explaining everything to me. I had a lot of questions and she answered all of them. It just felt like I knew her from before. I told my girlfriends about her already and will bring my uncle to her because all he knows is that his kidneys are bad. I told him that that's not a diagnosis!
Thank you for spreading the word Jeannie! We appreciate the kind feedback.

Very nice lady doctor. Convinced my husband to do what he needed to do to treat his blood pressure. I think she saved his life!
Thank you for your feedback! I hope you and Robert are doing well.

Dr. Wei is an exceptional physician. She is extremely intelligent (she completed her undergraduate training at MIT) and knowledgeable. In addition, she is compassionate, caring, and kind, and she takes the time to educate and explain the rationale behind her treatment decisions. She is meticulous and detail-oriented as well. I feel very fortunate to have found this talented nephrologist.
Thank you Esther! Your trust is very important to us.
in Bronx, NY |
Dr. Wei is the most knowledgeable doctor that I know. She spends a great amount of time with her patients making sure they can completely understand every aspect of their health. She's caring and passionate about her work and takes pride in the care she delivers to each patient. She focuses on the whole picture with each patient and not just her specialty. She's an awesome doctor!!!
Thank you for the compliments Jane! We strive to give every patient good care and a positive experience.

Dr. Wei takes really good care of my mother. She is very patient with us and my mother liked her from the first visit. She doesn't talk down to you like a lot of other doctors and she makes you feel better no matter what kind of day you are having. My mother's pressure is normal now with Dr. Wei. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my mother's pressure or kidney problems. If you have high pressure or kidney problems you should go see Dr. Wei.
Thank you Ms. Johnson! We are happy to hear your mother's blood pressure is better now.

Dr. Wei is a very good doctor. Dr. Wei spends a lot of time with me when I go see her.
in New York, NY |
She spends more time with me than any other doctor. She takes her time to explain everything to me and makes sure I understand why she is doing what she is doing. I had other doctors that didn't listen to me, and ignored my problems, but not her. If there is any question, she picks up the phone and calls the pharmacy or other doctors so everyone is on the same page. Dr. Wei is my favorite doctor!
