What People Say About Dr. Michael Weinberger, MD

I don't recommend Dr Weinberger. He has too much interns and they keep asking the same questions over and over, until he finally appears after 45 minutes of 'interns'. He says he will communicate with other doctors and physical therapists and he never does it. If you are in an emergency, don't call him because the secretaries with leave you on the phone forever. Horrible experience with my injections. The interns did them.Avoid yourself an aggravation. Don't go there.

Dr. Weinberger is a good doctor and very committed to pain management, but his office is so inefficiently run that it's usually a 2-hour wait to see him even if you book the first appointment in the AM. What's more when I recently called with a concern, I left seven different messages with his staff and never got a return call. One staffer said she wasn't allowed to contact him with patient questions!

Dr. Weinberger is the best at what he does. His office staff and fellows are superb. If he can't help a patient with chronic pain it is hard to believe anyone else can.
