Patient Reviews (3)
in Tyler, TX |
Efficient and patient oriented. She is knowledgeable, informative and caring.

She doesn't listen much about on the spot problems that may have accured recently.Shceduled to see me 15min to give my concerned looks a more depressed confused person after being prescribed Lyrica.Olny to go to my pharmacist to find that the medicine that was prescribed never came through.Hopefully that's my biggish concern now,getting our moneys worth and accurate treatment.
in Tyler, TX |
Dr. Weis only cares about money and referring her patients to other more qualified specialists. She does not even take the time to listen to your chest with her stethoscope, much less even touch you. I have never been to such a non-caring doctor in my life.
