Patient Comments (23)
in Boca Raton, FL |
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!
Boynton Beach, FL |
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

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!!

We find that Dr. Weiss is very involved with his patients in talking to and explaining any conditions . He follows up on any procedures, and he listens to and cares about your feelings. I would recommend him to anyone that I know. He personally calls you to let you know about anything that has been prescribed.

I've only been going to Dr.Weiss for about a year, but from the beginning he made me feel very comfortable when talking to him. He explains what he's going to do and what he needs me to do for myself. He very thorough and I feel like if I do what he suggest I will find relief in my situation.

competent, caring and trusted
in Lindenwold, NJ |
Dr. Weiss and his father before him have been my primary care physicians for over 45 years. I have always had all of my medical needs over the years including three minor hospitalizations handled by them with the utmost professionalism and patient caring and attentiveness anyone could ask for or need. In office visits Dr. Weiss never rushes and takes the time to answer all questions regarding medical needs and courses of treatment. He takes the time to know his patients on a personal level.
Dr. Weiss is the most amazing doctor. He took his time with me and showed so much knowledge, care and patience. It's hard to find doctors like him these days. Highly recommend!!!
