Our goal is to provide you with the best possible care and offer a pleasant and comfortable experience.
You can take an active role in your own care by:
* Asking us questions during your office visits.
* Providing us with a complete medical history.
* Carefully follow all care instructions.
As part of your visit, we will take a history of your symptoms and perform a physical examination. If you already have x-rays, MRIs or other diagnostic images, please bring them with you to your office visit. We may order other tests and images during your visit to confirm a diagnosis. Once we determine your diagnosis, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan to meet your particular medical needs.

Verified Patient Reviews
Highly professional staff and welcoming atmosphere.
i WAS ABLE TO GET AN APPT THE DAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING AND HE SET ME UP FOR AN MRI ON BLACK FRIDAY AND EVERYONE IN THE OFFICE WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND EFFICIENT. HE TOLD ME WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS WRONG AND WHAT I NEEDED TO DO AND THE MRI CONFIRMED HIS DIAGNOSIS. I AM SO HAPPY THAT I WENT TO HIM EVEN THOUGH HE IS FAR AWAY FROM MY HOUSE.
Dr. Weiss was nice and compassionate.
Professional, knowledgeable and friendly.
It went well. He sympathized with my pain and gave me some meds that I hope will help.
Very helpful, nice doctor. Worth a visit, hard to find doctors who are so thorough.
He was professional and thorough. He listened intently to every concern of mine and referred me to other specialists accordingly. He's a great doctor.
Dr. James Weiss is a fantastic doctor!
Dr. Weiss is always a good listener and a reasonable person.
An excellent physician! I'd recommend him to anyone.
No sure yet, initial visit.
I thought he was very thoughtful, thorough and with terrific attention and manner to my 12-year-old daughter who could easily talk to him (and thought he was nice). Our visit ended with direct and clear next steps and follow-up plan.
Great job Once i got in...
He's very knowledgeable and practical.
Excellent as usual
Dr. Weiss was not only knowledgeable, but kind and engaging. Because he is not afraid to look at all aspects of what is going on in the nervous/musculoskeletal system, I was actually able to uncover another diagnosis. One that I did not have time to miss. Great doctor, very thorough and excellent bedside manner.
They had me reschedule my appt from 3:45 to 2:45. I waited beyond 3:45 to see the doctor. I also mentioned in my zocdoc note that I need an X-ray... Turns out they don't have one on site. Now I have to take another day off to get an X-ray and then a 3rd day to return. Not a pleasant experience.
They had me in 20 minutes before my appointment. Had a thorough exam including a detailed talk about my back problems. Great doc, great visit!
I visited many doctors and nothing was resolved until I went here! Will continue to go!!!
No apparent electronic health record at the clinic.
I had been seen in the ER at Suburban by the orthopedist, who completely botched the diagnosis of my broken vertebra and the treatment -- sent me home with a neck collar that was way too big. I could not get a follow-up appointment with that orthopedist within a reasonable period of time, which turned out to be a good thing, because that led me to find Dr. Weiss, who ordered the right tests and referred me to an orthotics company that will fit me correctly for a neck brace. Now I have confidence in the treatment I am getting. The office seems well-run, too.
Dr Weiss is a Godsend. He not only answered my questions but answered questions I did not think to ask. We have rapport.
Dr. Weiss was thorough, thoughtful, instructive. I have recommended him in the past, and I will again.
Took time to listen to us, seemed very smart.
He does a very careful exam, listens to you, and gives you options. Couldn't ask for better!
Took care of my problem right away. Would recommend to anyone in need.
I left with a clear understanding of my problem and my treatment options.
Very knowledgeable, helpful, and has a nice manner with patients.
I was very impressed with Dr. Weiss and his staff. He provided good feedback for the current problem I have as well as a plan of action for a future appointment to deal with an additional problem I have. Overall, it was a very positive experience.
