Dr. Weil was and is the only doctor to ever help me with my back pain. He performed a microdiscectomy on my low back a couple years ago. I was able to play Division 1 collegiate tennis because of him. I was able to continue leading the life I once had because of him. He's a wonderful doctor that will present the facts. Highly recommend!

Dr. Weil is incredible. He removed a hemangioblastoma and cyst the size of a plum that was pressing on my husband's brain. Dr. Weil explains everything thoroughly and makes sure you are informed the whole way through. He has a calming demeanor as well. My husband was able to leave the hospital the day after his brain surgery. Amazing. I cannot praise him enough.

Dr. Weil is an outstanding doctor. While I ultimately underwent surgery, he started off my treatment with a very conservative approach. When it became apparent that surgery was necessary, he fixed the problem. Would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I was not happy with my resent visit with Dr. Weil. I felt as though I wasted both of our time. His attitude was extremely snug. 3 previous spine surgeries He showed absolutely no sympathy, empathy, or concern as for as the pain that I have experienced for the past 3 weeks He recommended that I have injections yet the doctor that performs the injections recommended me to him. I told him I was informed injections would not help. He said; it is what it is. WOW I would NOT recommend him to anyone

Don't trust these ratings. I have tried it twice and wasn't pleased with the doctor's that I chose from all these high ratings. All I did was waste my time on both this doctor and the previous one that I chose from here. I finally broke down and contacted an old family doctor who got me in touch with a top notch Neurosurgeon who was able to fix my problems with a minimally invasive procedure, to get the herniated disks off the nerves, that was causing all my pain.

Dr Weil performed surgery on me a week ago this past Friday for Cervical Stenosis. I'm a huge baby when it comes to surgery, so I was very apprehensive. He assured me that it would be fine. Surgery went well, 1st week post op pain handled well with medication he prescribed. Had my dressing removed today. He did an awesome job cosmetically in the area of the incision. I was almost hoping for like a gnarly "pirate scar" (it's a guy thing". It is barely even noticeable. Very happy so far.

I experienced a C4-C5 pinched nerve in 2013 that limited my left arm movement. Dr. Weil diagnosed me and within 2 days I was in surgery for ACDF. This time I experienced compression in L4-L5 in which oDr. Weil diagnosed in 2/2017. I tried 5 epidural injections back to back to only receive about 30-45 days of relief. I was then scheduled for 9/6/2017 but Dr. Weil moved my case to 8/31/2017 because I was in severe pain. Thank you Thank you Dr. Weil for succesful Laminectomy L4-5.. He is the BEST

Dr. Weil is an amazing neurosurgeon. He made me feel like my 3 level ACDF (Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion) was his artwork. He had every bit of confidence that he did the best job and better than anyone else could have done. I've asked multiple surgeons what they think of the final X-Ray and they all said it was perfect... AND no nerve damage. I do have to say, he would not give me the pain meds I needed, so it was a horrible experience post-op, but totally worth it NOW for this surgeon
