My experience with Dr Weidenbaum extremely unpleasant and a total disappointment. He is not professional at all and in some way disrespectful. He does no care about your clinical condition. He does not listen to your concerns. My impression was that this Dr is lost within his own profession. He has to check himself. He had the MRI on the computer and he could not figure out what were the C levels of my cervical spine. Dr Weidenbaum does not perform surgeries. He is not updated with the recent procedures relate to spine surgery. Neither he makes referrals to other Dr that can do those procedure for you. His answer "you go and see them". He is like a broken clock The office throw you under the buss and push you by scheduling appointment with him and now you can guess why. My advise is DO NOT see this Dr if you need a professional opinion about your spine injuries.

Dr. Weidenbaum restored my ability to walk pain-free. Before the surgery for spinal stenosis and disc problems my level of pain was a 10. Hours after my surgery I was asked about my pain level and my answer was "Well, the incision is sore.". After about 1 week in rehab I was walking normally. This event was many years ago, but to this day I am grateful for the blessing of being pain-free.

I found that Dr. Weidenbaum was good and answering my questions prior to lumbar fusion surgery, and was compassionate and attentive while I was in hospital. However, when it turned out that my spine hadn't fused (something I just recently found out from another surgeon at another hospital), his entire attitude toward me changed. He and his nurse played a little game at my expense during my final 2 year examination, guessing at what I personally had done wrong to cause the current pain I was in

I had severe major back pain and multiple problems with my spine. I required two surgeries, two weeks apart in order to correct the many issues. Dr. Weidenbaum completely explained the procedures and prepared me for the surgeries. After, he displayed a level of care, kindness and compassion that was unparalleled in my experience. He is a fine surgeon and a fine person.

Dr. Weidenbaum practices medicine in an open, consultative manner. He takes the time to show and explain what the problem is, what remedy he suggests and answers all questions. He maintains that approach during the hospital stay. In my case, an unexpected consequence of the surgery necessitated a 2nd surgery immediately. His handling of informing me, made my decision-making quick and easy. He also is conservative on Rx issues, believing in drugs when you need them, but not when you don't.

Dr. Weidenbaum is a phenomenal person. Before the surgical date on May 26th, he explained the surgical procedure to me step my step. He helped me understand what exactly he was going to do. That was extremely reassuring, considering that this was not going to be an easy surgery. Dr, Weidenbaum personally came down to the lobby to speak to my family to reassure them that everything is ok. He shows compassion towards his patients and if it is possible to give him more than five starts I would.

Beyond his technical skills as a surgeon, Dr. Weidenbaum is a thoughtful, friendly person with a real ability to communicate with his patients. He is clearly interested in maintaining a very high-quality practice in which the patient never feels neglected or uncertain about what is going on in the treatment. I would rate him at the top the list of several spine surgeons from Manhattan hospitals whom I have consulted in the past. A first-rate doctor, and a first-rate person.
