Abrupt to the point of rudeness. Not friendly. Gives one the impression he doesn't like being a doctor and takes out his frustrations on his patients. My advice: find another ENT doctor; there are plenty of them.

He did not listen, was short with me, and eluded that I was lying about being sick. He was not patient and had no bedside manners. I would not recommend him to anyone. However, his physician's assistant, Claire, was great.

I have never in my life met a egotistical nasty non caring doctor in my 51 years. I would not recommend him to my worst enemy. RUDE is an understatement. Told me complications of balloon, blah blah I could die or go blind...I said no thank you. He told me I could walk out his door and get ran over. He says are you done talking. Ughhhh.

I love Dr. Weingarten and have been going to his St. Clair Shores office for over 5 years. He is excellent at what he does. His communication is top notch. He is very pleasant and actually hilarious. He cares. His technique and execution are great. I could go on but that will suffice! God bless and thanks for everything!

Dr. Weingarten was outstanding! I was seen IMMEDIATELY for a problem that could have been devastating. He did an excellent job and was compassionate about my concerns. By being treated right away a quick and minor procedure saved me a lot of time and money. Just straight forward/experienced care. I am utterly grateful.

I have been a patient of Dr. Weingarten for many years. I have received great care. Appointments are easy to schedule and the staff is very friendly. Dr. Weingarten takes time to explain things thoroughly and treatments are always appropriate. He really takes the time to address your concerns. The audiology department is wonderful, too. The exams are well done and they take the time to do things right. Another family member also is a patient of Dr. Weingarten. She has had hearing aids fitted and has benefited greatly by using them. If there is ever a problem or concern, the staff is there to answer any questions or resolve a problem. In conclusion, I recommend Dr. Weingarten and all the other Dr.s in the practice most highly. Ear, Nose & Throat Consultants is THE place to go for quality and compassionate healthcare.

This was a great experience... and I had to get an blood vessel cauterized! The staff was so friendly and helpful and Dr. Weingarten was very calming, personable and professional. Short wait to get into a room and even shorter to see the doctor. I would definitely recommend this practice to everyone.

Dr. Weingarten is great! I was very nervous when I went in for my turbinate reduction surgery but his professionalism and outgoing personality helped to ease that nervousness. He was funny and extremely informative. He told me what to expect every step of the way!---and he was absolutely correct! For someone who looks up noses, in ears, and down throats all day everyday, he sure has an upbeat and positive energy about him and it embodies his patients, too! At least, it embodied THIS patient! Thank you for reassuring me and keeping me calm, Dr. Weingarten! I truly appreciate it!

I started going here after a friend posted her experience with the team. I was able to get a prompt appointment, they are very efficient even when you are in the office on getting you back. Minimal wait times. At first I was skeptical of everything Dr Winegarten was saying as my symptoms were kind of tertiary of the main issues( I had a lot of ear fluid built up, and chronic sinus and ear infections, but it was due to allergies and nasal canal drainage issues). Still, I followed through and with a short procedure, a vast majority of my symptoms have disappeared, my need for decongestants that didn't work well has disappeared, and I can really smell the roses! I highly recommend the daily allergy drops if you are a candidate- much easier and less reactive than shots I have had with another office. I love his staff, his offices are very nice and with COVID, they have taken great measures. I cannot sing high enough praises for how much this team has changed my life!

As always, even in Covid-times, the office is well run. Dr Weingarten is efficient, assuring and capable. I have been his patient for several years, with a life time of ear problems and other doctors. He, and importantly, his staff are the best I've seen. And yet he continues to strive to be even better.

Dr. Weingarten was able to solve my ear issues within a few weeks! After visiting a prior ENT doctor I was left with a reoccurring ear infection/hearing loss. After several visits I realized my issue would not be resolved. Once I switched to Dr. Weingarten I knew right away he would be able to help me. All of my appointments with him at the SCS office were very easy and helpful. If you are looking for a GREAT ENT, I recommend Dr. Weingarten!

My review is for Dr. Weingarten. My 82 year old mother and I are extremely happy with dr. Weingarten. He went out of his way to meet my mom in his office during the pandemic, when no one else would, to assess recurrent nosebleed. We found him to be thorough, compassionate with a good bedside manner. My mom has had 2 additional appointments with him since; one was to biopsy a suspicious legion he identified as the cause of her nosebleeds. It was painless and quick. At the same appointment, and for our convenience, not his, he kindly agreed to check my ears as I had noticed some abnormal pressure in my inner ear. He assessed it and gave me a treatment plan. (Most docs won’t do that.....they insist you make a separate appointment if you are accompanying another person) Needless to say, we shall be lifelong patients of Dr. Weingarten and would highly recommend him.

Dr, Weingarten is absolutely the best! I had a nosebleed that just wouldn’t stop. We called 911 and the EMTs were unable to stop it. We called Dr. Weingarten and were told to come right in. He cauterized it in two places and stopped the bleeding. He and his assistant did an amazing job!!

I recently awakened in the morning with my right ear unable to hear any sounds other than words that I spoke. Dr. Jeffrey Weingarten allowed me to come to his office for an emergency appointment the very next day. After examining my ear, Dr. JW told me that I appeared to have fluid trapped in my middle ear. He advised me to have a hearing test to confirm his diagnosis. I did so and the test confirmed it. Dr. JW explained my treatment options to me; and, I elected to have Dr. JW pierce my right eardrum, drain the fluid, and insert a tube into the eardrum. Dr. JW's offices were staffed and equipped so that the initial examination, the hearing test, and the pierce-drain-insert-tube procedure could all be completed during a single office visit--convenient at any time, but especially appreciated during the time when my condition occurred, during the Covid 19 Stay Home : Stay Safe period. Dr. JW provided me with the very best possible care, and I highly recommend his services to all.
