Seemed like he only cared to get through as many patients as possible that day, went in for my injury, was barely examined and said just to get XRays and an MRI. Told him I had a business trip for aweek in the coming days so if I emailed him my results could he go through them with me on the phone so I knew how to proceed and agreed at the time. When I called back once I received my results they told me he wouldnt do it over the phone now and I needed to come back in (probably so he could just paid for another appt.). I immediately found a new doctor and never would go back.

On my first visit to Dr. Weinstein I waited over a hour because he was held up at the hospital so all his appointments were backed up. When I did see him he was very knowledgeable and very professional. But onmy second visit, my wait time was less then ten minutes and as always he was very professional. I highly recommend Dr. Weinstein. I came to see him because of extreme pain in my back and leg. He was very concern about the pain and order a STAT for a MRI and Cat scan. He called right away when the result came in and talked about how we will deal with problem. That made me feel good knowing that he cared about me and my pain. I'm very pleased with his service and highly recommend him.

I saw Dr. Weinstein for a specific accident injury. My first visit was 2 days after my injury and he told me to immediately obtain a back brace and referred me to an attorney. He spoke very frightfully of my injuryand frankly was slightly terrifying. It was very bad bedside manner. When delivering bad news, a doctor should never make it seem like horrible news let alone a death sentence. I left his office devastated. The next visit he acted as though he never mentioned a back brace. That was my last visit.

It was great, before I was seen, the doctor took time to read my questionnaire I was asked to submit, I am glad he took time to read it since it eliminated redundant questions such as "what medical conditions do youhave or what medications are you taking. I am pleased with Dr. Weinstein because although he knew what brought me to his office, nonetheless, he asked me again and that allowed me to remember other symptoms I forgot to mention and as it turns out, were very important. He listened attentively to what I had to say and I left his office with a sense of relief and confidence that my condition would be addressed appropriately.

Dr. Weinstein was great. The accuracy of treatment and diagnosis was on point. The office was very clean and all of the staff was very nice to the patients. The receptionist were so nice and smiled at everyone that stood infront of them. That is so important when you arrive to a doctors office. I would refer to him every time. Also making my appointment through ZocDoc was amazing, they set up everything and texted me that it was done and texted me a reminder of the appointment the day of my appointment.

I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. weinstein. He was extremely personable and took the time to answer all my questions. I don't think I ever had a physician who took as much time as he did with me. I didnot feel rushed at all and he actually took a thorough physical where most doctors just run through the motions. The visit was a partnership where he relayed his thoughts on treatment options and asked for my input and together we came up with a mutually agreeable way to move forward. Definitely, an awesome doctor who knows his stuff, is a patient advocate and has your best interest at heart.

I SEEN HIM SHAKE "OTHER" PEOPLE HANDS (CAUCASIAN IM BLACK).... FIRST THING YOU ASK ME IS WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR ME ? YOU'RE THE DR. YOU TELLL ME WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR ME ... IM THE ONE THATS IN PAIN.... IM IN A LOT OF PAIN.... THEN HE HAD THE NERVE TO TELL ME TO GO BACK IN THE WAITING ROOM TO WAIT WHILE THEY GET THE XRAY ROOM READY WHICH TOOK ANOTHER 1 HOUR IN A HALF...JUST TO TAKE A XRAY TO TELL ME THAT I HAVE ARTHRITIS IN MY.....I KNEW THAT I COULD HAVE TOLD HIM THAT, SO NOW MY BODY HAS BEEN SUBJECT TO MORE RADIATION. ....THEN HE SAYS I NEED A EPIDURAL. ... I ALREADY HAD ONE OF THOSE, AND THEN HE WAS JUST WASNT PROFESIONAL AT ALL....,, IM NOT EVEN GOING BACK TO THIS DR BECAUSE HIS BEDSIDE MANNERS ARE NOT GOOD AT ALL....AND I DEFINITELY WILL NOT REFER ANYONE TO THIS GUY NEVER! !!!!

Within minutes, I was comfortable with Dr. Weinstein, He was gracious, attentive, confident in his thinking and, very important to me, in now way condescending. I have a specific course of action that makes total sense to me, and feel Iam in the best of hands. I have been to several orthopedist in the past -- big practices, long waits and once a physician who missed a broken foot. This was a refreshing change. Office folks were great as well. Ergo 5 stars.

There was nothing really wrong with the appointment other than it just felt like a "feed 'em and beat 'em" type deal. Patients were in and out in like 5 minutes and when I did get my chance to see thedoc, he clearly hadn't taken time to figure out who I was or why I was there (for a follow up). It turns out nothing was really wrong with my knee but honestly he just didn't really seem all that interested.

Dr. Weinstein was very courteous, professional, thoughtful and patient. He asked me questions only someone deeply concerned about your health would ask of a patient before medically reviewing their needs. I was blown away by his efforts toget me the medical assistance I needed. We were in his office at least 35 maybe 45 minutes just discussing my past health and future health needs. I'm very grateful for having zocdoc connect me with Dr. Weinstein.

I really appreciated Dr. Weinstein wanting to see my treatment all the way through. I have been seeing many doctors for this particular problem and although he wasn't able to fully take care of it himself he referred me to anotherdoctor and reassured me we will figure it out and he isn't just passing me off. I was happy with his concern for my condition. He is knowledgeable and explains things in a way you can understand. Allowed me to ask 50 questions until I felt satisfied. Very nice man.
