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.

Stay away from this doctor's office. Administrative staff in particular is not professional. If you call with a concern for a time-sensitive matter, they never call you back. They seem not to care about their patients. Doctor himself is fine, but it's impossible to get a hold of him or of his staff.

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.
