Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Weinberger "I am proud to be part of the Ark-La-Tex Center for Voice, Airway and Swallowing.  I originally trained at one of the nation's leaders in Patient and Family Centered Care (The Medical College of Georgia). My patients will confirm that I believe in making your surgical and medical descisions WITH you, and not FOR you, as a team. I specialize in treating patients with problems involving the voice, swallowing, or the airway. Many of the treatments we offer are minimally invasive, and some can even be performed in the outpatient office setting without the need for general anesthesia. I look forward to meeting you, and helping you to get better."

Dr Weinberger invented a special stint to assist in my tracheal problems and it worked, He also was able to get back to talking after not being able to do so for a year. He also prayed with me.
