My experience with Dr. Weiss and staff was nothing short of amazing. He is compassionate, knowledgeable, and his skill is extraordinary. I would fully recommend him for orthopedic hand/elbow surgery. I do not hand out praise easily, but I truly believe that the speed at which I healed is directly attributable to the skillful surgery that Dr. Weiss performed on my elbow tendon & ligament repair. Kudos to his staff as well!

Dr. Weiss has been such an amazing Physician he explained every aspect of my injury and plan prior to recommending surgery. I have seen other orthopedic docs that have not spent the time or energy to put patients at ease. I will recommend him to my co workers I am a PTAssistant and often am asked for referrals Dr. Weiss will be my #1 referral

Dr Weiss gave me complete confidence to receive surgery on my wrist that defiantly needed repair. His detailed information, with every step regarding my surgery left me feeling very safe and in good hands. He is a fantastic surgeon and person. I'm so very grateful, and can't thank him enough for getting my wrist back!

Dr. Weiss was absolutely outstanding as was every member of his staff. He immediately diagnosed the problem with my hand that had baffled another doctor, and performed the surgical procedure flawlessly. For the first time in years, I the nagging pain in my finger is completely gone. I couldn't be happier, would highly recommend Dr. Weiss to anyone.

My mother used Dr. Weiss for hand surgery - trigger finger & knew her experience was positive. No reason to do have confidence in his professionalism.

Spot on diagnosis, gave me all the options for recovery and let me choose the one that works best for me. Pleasant staff, especially Lisa and Kelsey. Had an acute issue and was seen same day. Within 2 days the situation was resolving because of proper diagnosis.... many Thanks!

I have full confidence in Dr. Weiss and his surgical abilities. He had an extensive knowledge about my condition and the surgical outcomes further indicate this. Would recommend him without reservation!

This is one of the worst interactions I have had with a physician. He yawned in my face when he sat down with me and acted like he was totally bored. My issue is arthritis in my thumb joint and I don't think he was too interested in helping . He explained options but did not really point me in any direction.

Did a fantastic job on my wrist. Removed a large bone spur and carpal tunnel surgery. Career saver for me. Thank you!
