New York, NY |
Horrible practice. They have no idea how bad they treat their patients. 1-4 hours late for their appointment times
Holtsville, NY |
Dr. Weiss is a wonderful doctor who truly cares about my recovery & my process. For me he used the least invasive methods & did not rush me into surgery, as many would prefer to do. He is a brilliant doctor who gives his best to his patients. I was most impressed with his explanation & desire for me to fully understand the issues pertaining to my individual injuries & my recovery. His office staff is excellent, always willing to assist with the medical claims & documentation needed.

Poor communication with office staff and Dr. Waited 2 weeks for results of MRI.Phone calls never returned.At the previous location things worked very smoothly.Don't know what happened after he relocated.He was a good Dr. before, but I will no longer go to this office.Sad to read these reviews.
Huntington, NY |
The worst doctor I've ever HAD to see. He's an IME puppet. Writes reports before seeing patients. Reports are full of lies and inaccuracies. He writes what he wants to in order to continue getting paid. He does not provide an INDEPENDENT medial exam as required. Never wrote down any calculations, dozens of which ironically appeared in his report. Failed to even report that I require brace and crutches to ambulate. Cited that he examined the skin of body parts when I never even removed clothing.

My son had been a patient of Dr. Weiss back when he was in a group practice located at St Catherine's Hospital. We have only been to his new office once & will not go back. Dr. Weiss wrote a prescription for my son to have an MRI on 4/22/2016 and it is now 6/29/2016 and we still have not received the necessary authorization. Oxford is telling me the office has not even requested an authorization meanwhile his staff is blaming the insurance company. Now I have to start all over with a new doctor.

My initial appointment and exam went fine and he had saw my right Xray report. I complained about my left shoulder also and he gave me scripts for an Xray and MRIs of both shoulders. I left a message on his office answering machine that I needed a referral for the 2 shoulder MRIs but then heard nothing back. I called 2 more times and never a response back. I finally gave up as either he lost interest or his office help is inadequate (maybe both). I guess I was also abandoned...

Please contact the Dept of education Office of prof LIC and file with them dr Weiss is already under investigation for patient abandonment and gross neglect and falsifying documents keep filing and he will start acting accordingly to his oath or lose his cash cow business
in Lindenhurst NY |
I saw this doctor for a no fault case and was examined for 2-3 minutes and with his magic eyes he determined my injuries were cured, Cat scans , MRI's three other doctors treating me, me telling him the pain was excruciating and still he writes elbow shoulder has full range, this for nerve pain which would not affect range, he must see 15-20 people an hour If you go to see him bring a video camera and a person to tape it, a mistake I made, I trusted him to do the right thing something he did no
in Hauppauge, NY |
The doctor could not concentrate on my appointment with him. Too busy worrying about the pictures in his office and his flowers. The staff has no idea what they are doing, I don't get a call back and they are very unfriendly. Would not recommend him or his office. They've cancelled my appointment many times. I won't go back.
