A patient of his for 37 years, I trust him in every decision we ever made. I say we because it was never just him telling my parents what to do, or my parents telling me what I will do in regards to my health. As early as age 10 we would have the heart to heart about surgeries etc, and my opinion actually mattered to him.

I've been a patient of Dr. Weinstein for a number of years now. He's consistently very kind, gentle, and warm. He has the best bedside manner of any physician I've ever seen. Dr. Weinstein truly cares about his patients--not only in his clinic but also about the rest of their life outside the clinic. I truly appreciate how he connects (with great eye contact) with his patients and gains their trust. He is very good at what he does and is well respected in his field.

Super cool guy and just plain out awesome. Besides that, the best surgeon you could ask for. I got so lucky to have him as my doctor.havent had one issue since having the spinal fusion surgery 4 years ago at age 13. I'm now 17 and thinking about taking them out to see if it helps with my lower back pain at all. But if I had to pick the person to do it, would be 100 percent dr. Weinstein. Completely amazing.

Likely the best option for scoliosis fusion surgery back in 1998. Follow ups 5, 10, 15 years later......not so much In reading his notes from follow up visits, not only were they completely untrue.....they were basically lies. I cannot in good faith give a positive review about Dr. Weinstein. I was not ever "listened to "
