Although the doctor was okay, he relies on his office woman who is either incompetent, lazy or ignorant of insurance protocol. A Very frustrating experience, especially for a person who is ill. The office woman refused to submit an authorization to insurance for tests and passed the responsibility. She said “ we don’t do that, your primary doctor has to do it”. Months later I still do not have a complete approval for tests plus orders for tests needed to heal me. I called management at my insurance and they said she should have submitted what’s needed.

See some of these one stars, and I don't get it. My experience was the complete opposite. I came in with a mystery lung condition and Dr. Weintraub walked me through a list of specialist. He is one of the only physicians I have ever worked with and actually had the ability to sit and talk about the condition like I was discussing it with a friend. Changing insurance during the process, I still go to Dr. Weintraub - even though he is out of network. Go to Dr. Weintraub. Period. He is the best.

Lousy "bedside manner." He explains nothing. Would never return. He needs to retire.

his office staff SUCKS! But Dr. Weintraub is an amazing doctor and I will keep coming back to him despite his office lacking in social skills, friendliness, and paying my co-pay in cash. Please, please, PLEASE bring exact change. Their office doesn't know how to make change or have petty cash.
