Professional Statement

I am an ophthalmologist with over 20 years experience. I hold an active, part-time teaching position at Kings County Medical Center (SUNY/Downstate Medical School) where I teach surgical procedures in traumatic/complicated cataract, glaucoma and pterygium, and I am also Assistant Clinical Professor at Albert Einstein.

I have a reputation for honesty and ethics. I only recommend tests or procedures when they are absolutely in the patient's interest. Doing anything to a patient for the sake of making more money violates everything I believe in as a human being.

I examine patients of all ages. I perform excellent surgery and use the latest implants. I use the latest in laser, digital and computerized instruments.

I take my time with my patients. I am somewhat of a perfectionist and I do not want to miss anything or get careless by feeling rushed.

Our office is state-of-the-art with technicians, optometrists, a beautiful optical store and several ophthalmological sub-specialists.

He lets you know that he is an ophthalmologist and not a optometrist. He doesn't check your eyes to give you a prescription for glasses. He treats patients who have diseases of the eye .. He lets you know his philosophy up front. and you can read it on zocdoc. Got an appointment the next day. He diagnosed my problem and is very conservative (which I think is good) and doesn't prescribe medication unless it is needed. Got taken very quickly and did not sit in the office for hours.

If you talk fast (not take up much of his time), he will respond to non-emergency questions/comments. Always polite, pleasant, helpful.

The receptionist was very sweet when I walked in I let her know that I made an appointment through Zocdoc and even though I pre-filled my forms here I still had to fill out some paper work, hence the little wait time. But overall the wait time wasn't so bad and the doctor was very well mannered and addressed all of my concerns =D would highly recommend.

Very professional and nice doctor that takes time to explain thing to you. He has a good combination of old school and new technology to diagnose and treat problems of the eye. Usually a fast appointment.

Granted that I arrive early for my appointment, I was seen right away and was able to leave the office in about 30 minutes after I arrive. I was very satisfy with the care I received from Dr. Weitzner.

Excellent doctor, clearly very knowledgable and very patient with questions. There was some confusion when I got there because they didn't have me on the schedule even though I clearly got a confirmation through zocdoc. I have no idea what that was about but they handled things very well at the reception area and got me in without any real issue.

Front office staff is sullen (both acted resentful, like I was interrupting their leisure time) and unprofessional (both of them were eating and ignored me when I arrived). Doctor was thorough and informative but also had demeanor of someone who has better things to do / places to be.

I love Dr. Weitzner. He is solid, professional and I am very comfortable with him. He had treated me in the past for an eye infection. The treatment that another doctor prescribed could have resulted in serious problems with my eyesight. Dr. Weitzner put me on a regimen of drops which resulted in clearing the infection in a very short period of time.
