I had a total thyroid removal and I tell you my scar is not even obvious upon my return to work people was just astonished because they could not see it, the staff was great and he did just what he said he was going to do, I am still just waiting to get my normal voice back but he did said it was going to take some time but he is one excellent doctor. God bless you Doctor Weinstein and staff

Don't ever go to this Dr for Hernia repair. The office has no concern for their patients once the surgery is over and wait times are 1-2 hours. Sorry, but my time is just as valuable when compared to a subpar doctor. I have had pain since the surgery and this doctor is not interested in assisting and failed to even follow up when he said he would. If you want to be in pain for years after your hernia repair, then by all means see Dr. Weinstein.

Had Bi lateral hernia surgery in July of 2015. Hernia was large and needed a highly skilled DaVinci robotic surgeon. Dr. Weinstein was outstanding and performed a difficult surgery flawlessly and his demeanor during the follow up visits was excellent as he explained my surgery in detail and set proper expectations. I highly recommend him. Just a nice guy!
