I contacted the doctor's office and left a voicemail with the MA on 7/07...NO call back. Voice message from the doctor's office says, "All calls will be responded to within 24 hours. Please do not leave duplicate messages." I called and spoke with the doctor's MA on 7/13 and was told the doctor would need to complete this...NO call back. I called this morning 07/21 and left a voice message with the doctor's MA explaining that my 30 day mask exchange deadline is/has approached and that I was worried I might not be able to make the exchange because NO one is assisting me. Very poor service from the office of Dr. Joseph Weissmann at Emory Sleep Center. WOW!

Sleep study was completed on 5/03. Dr. evaluated/interpreted sleep study and signed it on 5/16. I received an email with the evaluation/interpretation on 6/07. I can not understand why it took 21 additional days for me to receive my email with the evaluation interpretation results. I repeat...he completed his evaluation on 05/16. Medical equipment company contacted me a week later and I received my Bipap machine and mask on 6/22. I used the equipment for 2 weeks and gave full effort to get accustomed to the mask. High pressure required me to strap down the mask so tight that my face had red marks(dents) in the morning. I called the medical equipment company about the issue. They directed me to call my Dr. and ask for a 30 day mask exchange. I contacted the doctor's office and left a voicemail with the MA on 7/07...NO call back. Voice message from the doctor's office says, "All calls will be responded to within 24 hours. Please do not leave duplicate messages." I called and spoke with t

Horrible horrible experience. He did not ask for my consent nor did he tell me what he was doing or why when he put his hands on me. He wrenched my neck which caused excruciating pain and made me cry. He did not review any of the documents I provided with data on my sleep. He did not even review the paperwork his staff insisted I complete. He berated me, talked down to me, and told me my insomnia is because of depression. (It is not.) I was told I had to have a home sleep study before I saw him,

By 75 years of close contact with the medical community, starting with all early years growing up with my 30 year Veteran Hospital Administrator Father, I am a well qualified "outside observer" when judging medical action. Trust me on this one: Upon being Dr. Weissman's patient for something less than a year now; I already know, for certain, we are in good hands with this Doctor. Dr. Weissman is easily among the best Doctors in these parts. We may find his rare equal; however, we will not fin

I saw him twice the first time he has students in the office trying to get information from me. He got all the information screwed up getting it from and 4 other students. The second time he just did not listen to me. He told me that all he sees is an overweight person who needs a sleep study. My best friend went with me he asked me if I snored I told him that my HUSBABD says I do. He then look at my BFF and asked her if I snore when we are sleeping, when he did that I knew he did not listen.
