Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Not very positive. Wife and I went for eye exam with the expectation of being able to see better. First the frames were chipped, and after 2-3 attempts we still can’t see well with our glasses. Dr. Weingarten is a poor listener. We have always gone to an optometrist, but thought we give an ophthalmologist a try, and definitively not the right choice. Would not recommend.

I have been experiencing continuous degradation in my eyesight and wanted to consult regarding preventative care because my vision is consistently deteriorating. I called the Dr. and he just said I should wear the glasses he prescribed. Not very good for listening.

The doctor seemed very competent and good at explaining the procedures and results. This was the least painful exam I have had!! He seemed very rushed and definitely not interested in chit chat. But then, I wasn't there for a tea party. I was there for an exam, which went very quickly and apparently accurately. The staff was very friendly, helpful and not rushed.

Dr. Weingarten is very thorough and provides excellent care to me and my family. He is easily accessible for emergencies and maintains competent and professional staff. I get my examinations for glasses and contacts there and always enjoy my visits. I really like the frame selection available in his office, and appreciate the ease and proficiency of getting my glasses adjusted when necessary. Dr. Weingarten performed cataract surgery on my mom and she also sings his praises to all.
