Insurance coverages changes required we seek a new pediatrician. Dr. Weiss was highly recommended. Despite the web site statement "all new patients from babies to young adults" the Office Manager refused care to both of our children (ages 7 and 15) due to the age of our oldest child. She then refused to see our younger child due to the "potential conflict" of the two children seeing different physicians. Their policy is they only accept new patients under the age of 10. This makes absolutely no sense. If you expect your child reach adolescence, seek treatment elsewhere. They prefer to treat younger children.

My children have been patients of Dr. Weiss since I moved to Florida 8 years ago. Their approach to pediatric medicine is family centric. I always feel welcome and no question is ever silly. The staff is outstanding. They truly try to get to know you and care about your well being not only for their patients but the parents as well. For my family, there is no other option for my children’s care.

Abrasive, unprofessional, and has a poor bedside manner. Someone needs to retire! Made our experience as first time parents awful! We should have listened to other parents in Sarasota! BEWARE

One of the things we pride ourselves on at Weiss...Read More
We love Weiss pediatrics! Everyone that works there is so friendly and hands on and they never make you feel like any question is a dumb one. And us first time moms have LOTS of questions. I especially want to mention how much we adore Rosemary. Even if she isn't our nurse that day, she always checks in on us and makes us feel important and not just like another patient. We definitely recommend Weiss Pediatrics!

I'm so thankful to have found Dr. Weiss to care for my kids. He is gentle, kind, patient (especially with my spirited three-year-old!), and always takes the time to thoroughly explain any procedures and treatment. He is not only impressively knowledgable and attentive, but really good with my kids. They think he is fun and love to visit his office. They also LOVE the therapy dog they have in-office, Elliot. He's a fluffy dog who couldn't be sweeter. Weiss Pediatric Care is the best!

Love this doctor! Dr. Weiss and Diane spend time with us to make sure we feel comfortable with any diagnosis or developmental information. Having a staff that together consist of a pediatrician, child development specialist, breast feeding consultant & sleep disorder expert in one spot makes getting advice so much easier. It also leans we are hearing about different types of care from the same foundational philosophy. We are so lucky!

Seen Dr. W since I was born, always very helpful then switched to his PA. Having lots of problems with medication I was prescribed I called the office several times and was treated poorly by nurses. Then finally I called Dr.Weiss directly seeking guidance, I was in a lot of pain and was pushed to the point of tears then told that I needed "Mental Help" not only did this completely disregard the REAL health problems I was having but was incredibly unprofessional and rude.
