This was my husband's and my first visit to Dr. Richard Weiss. We both were looking for a new primary care doctor and were very pleased with the staff at Cohen Medical Associates and Dr. Weiss. Dr. Weiss took time to go over our medical history. We left feeling comfortable that Richard Weiss is now our primary care doctor.

We moved to Delray Beach last July 2016, a friend of ours recommended Dr Weiss both my wife and I started using the Dr. 6 month ago. We both found Dr Weiss caring, understanding and most important he spent the time to understand what our needs ar. Every recommendation the Dr. asked us to do helped our conditions. He was very through with the test and also called other Drs we were using to help with my problems. I would recommend Dr Weiss to anyone friend, family members and acquaintance

Very detailed doctor. Answered all of my questions. Took the necessary time to explain everything. Not many like him in this new health environment. Highly recommended.

Dr. Weiss was amazing! He was well educated, thorough, and really took his time with me. It is so hard to find doctors who will sit there and actually spend time with you. I highly recommend!

Dr. Weiss and his staff are the most unfriendliest/ unhappy people I have ever met. Him and his nurse acted as if they hated being there (and each other). From the moment I walked into his office a nurse was complaining she wished she stayed home today that she "cant take it anymore" - very unprofessional. Dr. was condescending- when jotting down my medical/family history he kept questioning what I was telling him!?! and didn't seem to care for his patients- just another number/ patient to bill.

I feel compelled to leave a review, I'm am/was a longtime patient of Dr Weiss. I have only good to say about Dr Weiss. It was a relationship cut short by his relocation to Fla. and, if it wasn't such a long drive for an office visit, I'd still be his patient. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a doctor. For Dr Weiss and, wife Patti, wishing you continued success and good health. Ed K

I've been with Dr. Weiss for over 25 yrs and very happy with him. Always pleasant and professional sorry to see him leave. I feel that he not only became my doctor but a friend that I can talk to about my health and golf!

Dr Weiss was extremely concerned about my transition to a new physician due to his moving to Florida. He has been my family doctor for decades and has always provided me with the best of care for my adult son and for myself. He stays up to date on the latest medical advances as they pertain to his practice and has always had a good group of specialists to send us to when the occasion arises. I appreciate his calm, conservative and knowledgeable approach to our health issues. He's the Best!!
