What People Say About Dr. Carl Weinert Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

My 8 year old son was seen at Dr Weinerts Irvine office for his broken wrist. From the moment we walked into his office, we were greeted warmly and felt comfortable. We waited less then 15 minutes to be brought back to a room, and less then 5 minutes to be seen by Dr Weinert. No longer then 30 minutes later, my sons fractured wrist was set and placed in a cast. (the color chose by my son). Dr Weinerts staff were very professional and caring. Dr Weinert took the time to show us the before and after x-rays in addition to showing us the fracture in 2 textbooks. Both my wife and I are ER nurses and we couldn't have been more impressed.

We had a terrible visit with Dr. Weinert! He spent a total of 1 minute in the office and didnt even evaluate our daughter before he tried to send her off for an X-ray of her shoulder. Then it turns out he misdiagnosed her because we went to another doctor who took an X-ray of her arm and it ended up being a forearm hairline fracture. They are either too busy, or Dr. Weinert didnt care for his patient, or both!

Dr. Weinert treated my newborn baby's clubfeet. He did not fully correct them AND his casts weren't put on correctly and therefore causes the cast the SLIP. We had to spend A LOT of TIME and MONEY to fix the problems that his casting caused. Every time we tried to ask questions his answers were vague and unclear. He needs to retire. Never got a sorry or a call from his office when I stopped showing up for appointments and he still charged me for coming in to fix HIS casts that HE messed up.

This doctor is horrible! My son had a pre-axial polydactyly surgery 5 weeks ago. Dr. Weinert promised us that the finger would look like normal person's. But now my baby's thumb looks like 2 finger glued into one! It's horrible and doesn't look normal at all! The doctor's answer to that is-- this doesn't affect his daily life! And he didn't want to communicate after that. I am so horrified at this point and have to find another doctor to fix the problem!
