Dr. Weiner is an excellent ophthalmologist. He has been very thorough in diagnosing and explaining my eye issues. I just called the Ophthalmic Consultants of the Capital Region to check my appointment dates and am told he is no longer there. They will not give any info as to wether he is retired...more
