Never have I been to a doctor as informative and patient as Dr. Weiss. He spent a lot of time with me explaining every detail of my upcoming hernia surgery and a separate issue of concern. Where most doctors tend to answer questions quickly and vaguely, Dr. Weiss explains everything in as much detail as possible without ever seeming annoyed or in a rush. I also would like to mention his staff was absolutely top notch, I’ve never been more impressed with a support staff in a medical office before

Dr.Weiss was very caring. My gallbladder was loaded with stones & I couldn't eat ANYTHING without throwing up. My insurance wasn't going to have my gallbladder removed because they labeled it as "an elective surgery" but Dr. Weiss fought with them, made it happen and saved my life bc I found it was on the verge of bursting. Forever grateful.

I was nervous after being told I might need same day surgery by urgent care, when I arrived the waiting room was pleasant enough. But I was then taken to what essentially amounted to a closet. There where operating scissors, knives and all sorts of bandages everywhere. I was forced to wait there for thirty minutes when the Doctor came in and man-handled my infected arm. Told me to relax, it shouldn't hurt. I was over reacting... Needless to say, I won't be going back. EVER.

Personable. He took the time to talk to me, the patient, as soon as I arrived at the hospital. He also chatted with me right before surgery. I guess he understands that many patients are nervous before surgery and acts accordingly to soothe any of their nerves. My wife called and left a message seeking clarification on post surgery care. Dr Weiss personally returned the call. His actions shows he is the ideal surgeon to work with.
