I had my first visit with Dr. Weitzman after my doctor gave results of my blood tests and made me feel so low and afraid. Dr. Weitzman's awesome bedside manner, he even went to get my daughter from the waiting room...wow. I dont know what lies ahead, but you know, first impressions...all I can say at this early stage is THANK YOU so much!!!
