Foothill Ranch, CA |
Dr Weinberg is attentive and listens to his patients with compassion. He goes above and beyond, the normal care that he even called me from his cell phone to catch me just after leaving his office to recommend a better option for some tests I had to take.

Dr. Weinberg is not only compassionate but extremely intelligent, diligent and professional. He has helped my family when others could not.
in Laguna Beach, CA |
I am a 55 yo with unrelenting, constant D from microscopic colitis. I was at the point of my life where I had stopped running and struggled working b/c I couldn't find a treatment that worked. I finally saw Dr. Weinberg last month and it was world changing for me. He embodies all the traits I care about in a physician: humility, great listening skills and respectful of other's time. He promised to work with me to make my D manageable and he has. I can't recommend Dr. Weinberg more strongly.

My daughter is a nurse at Saddleback Memorial Hospital. When I told her about a medical concern I had, she consulted with fellow medical professionals regarding who I should be seeing. It was unanimous that Dr. Weinberg was the doctor I should see, and I can confidently concur given the exceptional care he gave me during my recent journey. The medical concern turned out to be benign and I was most fortunate knowing I was under the care of a doctor so highly recommended.

One of the best GI doctors I have encountered. After my son was diagnosed with a severe case of UC, I consulted with the top doctors in the country. I soon found that the best doctor was in my backyard. I am so glad I found Dr. Weinberg. After extensive testing and trying different treatment regimens, my son is now in remission. I highly recommend Dr. Weinberg.
Benjamin, TX |
I highly recommend Dr. Weinberg. There are two sides to patient-care: medical and human. Dr. Weinberg possesses both. He provides a comfortable environment, listens, is patient, and answers all my questions. His is also very personable and quite funny. Luckily, I?ve never needed an urgent appointment, but I have no doubt Elizabeth would take good care of you.
Terrible. All he concerned about is getting paid. Poor ethics and no concern for patients only money. Stay away.
