Dr Weiss tool exceptional care of me when I was 12 yo and had a major eye trauma. I would trust this dr with with any of my loved ones. His frankness paired with his knowledge made a terrible situation bearable. Sometime being told the truth about the possible outcome of an injury is not what you want but to be able to deal with it better it's what you need and that's what Dr Weiss did for me, Thanks Doc!!! 20/20 after major eye damage, praise God
