Have seen Dr. Weiss a number of years. My insurance changed and the pain management specialist were marginal. I pay a premium to see Dr. Weiss since he is out of network. Getting in to see him can take time, however when I had an emergency he expedited me and made accommodation via phone.
Freeport, IL |
Tried to get an urgent appointment twice...didn't happen. 4-5 WEEK wait, and in severe pain. I live in Freeport where Dr. Weiss only comes once a week. Didn't matter how much pain I was in, he was booked up. Out of the last 2 of 3 appointments I had with him to get an injection, I had over an hour and a half wait from the time my appt. was scheduled for. It seems that phone calls from who-knows-who take top priority with him. Once he even came into the procedure room talking on the phone.
