Dr. Weiss is the most loving and caring Dr. I have ever seen. She always puts her patients first and saved my mother's life 29 years ago and mine 15 years ago. Without her expertise and guidence I do not believe I would here to watch my children grow. I love her from the depths of my soul and thank god for her everyday. She's a living angel. Words cannot express my love and gratitude for her.

Office is unprofessional. While Dr Weiss is average, her office staff is really terrible in attitude and skill. Many times not scheduling properly or forgetting to do what is required. Dr Weiss is also slow in that it took her over 2 weeks to comment on my blood work when I first became a patient. Office hours are very limited with the office closing at 2 p.m. and closed completely on other days.

Dr. Weiss is the most compassionate doctor I have ever come across. I have had uterine and breast cancer and both times she saved my life. If it weren't for her I wouldn't be here today. I owe my life to this fantastic doctor..

Rita Weiss killed my mother and took no responsibility for it My mother died from stage 4 lung cancer and Rita only thought the diagnosis was anemia She is a nasty egotistical murderer The staff are as nasty as Rita is and refused to release my moms records It is a crime that she is still practicing and I wouldn't have my worst enemy treat with her
