Nazareth, PA |
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!
