I have been a patient of Dr. Weinstein for many years. I first saw him when I had a problem with my rt knee of which I had to do surgery. It was very successful I was back to work in six week. Recently I had a rotator cuff tear and I had to have surgery again . He is such a good surgeon. He cares for his patients. He listen to your complaints and gives to time to ask any questions you may have. Dr. Weinstein and his staff are courteous to everyone. He is the type of surgeon who is very knowledgeable of his profession. I wouldn't trust any other surgeon with my joints he is truly the best by far.

Dr. Weinstein took his time to review my MRI and explain my condition and possible treatment options. He suggested a conservative approach first and if doesn’t work we would discuss surgical options. He’s an amazing surgeon!

I have been a patient of Dr. Weinstein for several years. I love that he listens to my concerns, and always answers me honestly, he takes time when he is seeing me, is caring and truly a patient advocate. His office staff are wonderful. They always squeeze me in in an emergency. They help with notes and forms, and make you feel you are important. I should know, I have been a nurse for over 30 years. If you ever need orthopedic care go to him.

I was referred for a second opinion for spinal surgery/reconstruction. I advised the secretary of diagnosis degenerative Scoliosis. I traveled 2 1/2 hrs and waited 30 minutes to see the doctor. He was nice enough asked why I was there ,no examination was performed,he looked at my X-ray written report.He advised me that he doesn’t do spinal reconstruction and referred me to HSS . I wish his office did some type of screening of diagnosis prior to making appointments.

Horrific - must get 2nd opinion before surgery! He recommended extremely invasive lumbar spine surgery for herniated disc. He also advised pain management (epidural) was not worth trying at all. I saw 2 other orthopedic surgeons both of which recommended trying an epidural and also advised much less invasive surgeries if epidural didn’t work. In the end the epidural worked. This doctor’s practice felt like a butcher shop praying for unsuspecting people to practice on.

Dr. Weinstein is amazing! After years of pain, numbness, and tingling Dr. Weinstein was the first doctor to really listen to my complaints and help me. After review of my symptoms and imaging we decided on acdf surgery and while I still have a long recovery ahead of me, I already feel better than I did before the surgery. Also, when I was feeling unwell in the hospital Dr. Weinstein stayed with me in my hospital room until I felt better. It is refreshing to find a doctor who still cares about hi

Have a No-Fault injury case for a lower back injury & Dr. Weinstein did my surgery. He was and still is amazing! He explained everything thoroughly and even helped me when I had issues with my case. The wait time is never long (the longest I've waited was about 15 minutes) . I would absolutely recommend him to others.

My husband was in a car accident and hurt his shoulder really bad. We called Dr. Weinsteins office and they took us in right away. They scheduled an MRI immediately and my husband had surgery. He had a short recovery and his arm is moving perfectly now since Dr Weinsteins surgery. My husband is back at work and very happy with Dr. Weinstein and his staff and service.

My wife had Spine Surgery from Dr Weinstein. He was very nice and she almost has no scar. No complications and was very attentive and caring to her needs. My wife panicked at night and the Doctor called back immediately. One of the Best Doctors we ever EVER went too!
