It has been more than a week since the first visit and This was my second visit to Doc weissman. Sofar, he told me to keep taking the same medicine for few more days and to see if it treats my eye stye,if not i will have to take surgery for it, but for now just little improvement for eye stye. I will keep it posted and follow up with him and let you know guys. Overall, i would say that that he has positive attitude and good manner and recommend him.

Speaking of the doctor's visit was not bad, even though i was waiting for about 30 minutes and there was 2womens that came after me and they had them in. That was not fair, whatever the doctor he was nice, humble and he answered all the questions i have, however speaking of the secretary or the women that works in front desk caused me discomfort and she was,rude and not nice, plus she misbehaved. They need to change her to someone that have a good manner and can communicate nicely and with respect. Overall, the experience was good with the doctor he showed respect and he was well behaved. Therefore, I recommend anyone to go to this Doctor.

The lady at the front office is great. Kind, polite and professional. The doctor was more witty than professional. He also recommended more than warmly the services of his neighbor optician. He might be a very good and experienced doctor butI found the attitude less serious than the circumstances allow.

Dr. Weissman was jocular, even avuncular, with his statements and recommendations. However, the office seemed small and quiet, especially for three o'clock in the afternoon. Nevertheless, the staff member was kind — and (very quaintly,might I add) used a typewriter to record my information. The visit stretched on for some ninety minutes, and was even interrupted, but Dr. Weissman, a former president of the Massachusetts Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons, obviously is knowledgeable about his work and likes what he does. All in all, an extraordinary visit to an amazing ophthalmologist .

Dr. Weissman and his staff are very kind and down-to-earth, yet attentive to detail. During my visit, his office administrator was efficient, and Dr. Weissman himself was thorough with his examination but also found time to share some interestingstories about the Boston area (I've been in Boston for less than a year). His bedside manner was excellent; I felt comfortable asking him any questions and didn't feel that my appointment was rushed. I would highly recommend Dr. Weissman to anyone in search of a kind and competent eye doctor.

Dr . Weissman was my son's opthologist from the time he was 6 weeks old. When I was disgnosed with Type 1 diabetes it only made sense that I should make him my dictor as well. I have known Dr. Weissmanfor 39 years. He has always been kind, compassionate and honest. He doesn't rush his patients in and out
