Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Compassionate, informative, detailed.
I chose Dr. Weiss after my previous surgeon was unavailable to perform my surgery. From the first consult, I felt comforted that I was in competent and skilled hands. Dr. Weiss was straightforward with me, explained the procedure and the recovery process to me in detail. His bedside manner is remarkable. I would recommend Dr. Weiss to anyone who is committed to improving their life.

I went to Dr Weiss because I wanted to see if my sleeve had expanded. He took xray of my chest. Where the sleeve was done. At that appointment Dr Weiss found that I had a really big hiatal herinia and that my stomach is in a shape of a backward s. I was surprised to hear that. I then got ready for revision of the sleeve and hiatal herinia surgery.

He saved my life when I was very sick and running multiple infections. I met him for a bariatric surgery consult and got me back in shape before my VSG surgery.
