Verified Patient Reviews
Excellent experience. Saw Dr. Weinstein himself. Quick and confident diagnosis of a minor back injury.
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 on my 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 feel very confident that he will guide me in the right direction regarding my disk issues and hopefully get me the results I need!
Doctor was knowledgeable would recommend
knowledgeable and answered any questions that was presented. Also gave solutions that can help with situations.
very knowledgeable and professional. Friendly staff.
Great doctor! He is extremely informative and has wonderful bedside manner.
Diagnosed issue correctly and was caring but didnt let me talk through my issue to completion which may have lead to tests and followups that were just not necessary.
Excellent Doctor, easy to talk to and very knowledgable.
Very professional and courteous doctor and staff. Dr. Weinstein knows what he is doing and will not sugar coat anything. He gets things done and very quickly!
Very professional. Extremely courteous staff as well. I would highly recommend Dr. J. Weinstein.
DR was fast and professional.
Awesome friendly office.
The doctor was very polite and diagnosed me immediately
Excellent dr to see.
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 you have 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.
The office doublebooks appointments but is otherwise a pretty seamless operation.
Was very pleased. Hardly no wait at all. Best to download patient forms online and complete at home, to save time filling out in the office. Took x-rays right away in his office. Would recommend.
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 injury and 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.
Dr. Weinstein is a great and helpful doctor, however, I found the long wait time very frustrating and unnecessary.
Exam lasted 10 minutes tops. Felt ignored and brushed off.
He was great! Very thorough
great doc. spent time with me. really listened. bottom line helped me
great experience !!! would recommend
have had issues with my knee and Dr weinstein really cares. I have been to the office a few times and we always pick up where we left off. He also gets me tests very fast and has results asap. At this point I am going to have surgery with him. I would not go anywhere else. office staff is great!
dr weinstein was great. he really listens and the plan was amazing i would recommend
great doc!!!! he knows his stuff.
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 in front 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.
Not really helpful. Rushed first visit
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 did not 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.
Dr. Weinstein was very helpful and informative about my condition. He answered all of my questions and I left his office feeling confident in his diagnosis. His staff was very courteous and attended to me right away. I was running late for my appointment and just called in and told them and they were very understanding and let me move my appointment. I'm absolutely pleased with the care and service provided
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 I am 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.
I DO NOT LIKE THIS DOCTOR, I REPEAT I DONT LIKE THIS DR. I WAS GIVING A REFERRAL TO SEE HIM BECAUSE MY ORTHO. DR THOUGHT THAT I MAY NEED SURGERY, SO HE CALLS MY NAME, AND NOT ONLY DID HE MESSED UP MY NAME HE DIDNT APOLOGIZE FOR MESSING IT UP, HE DIDNT SHAKE MY HAND... 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! !!!!
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 to get 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.
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 the doc, 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.
Very good feedback from him. He will contact you as soon as he gets the labs.
Dr. Weinstein asked questions and took time to listen. Good bedside manner and friendly demeanor. The wait was 45 minutes long, so that will need to be improved. Otherwise, I recommend Dr. Weinstein.
Dr Weinstein takes his time to really understand what is wrong. Will go out of his way to help you out and ensure you are getting the proper treatment, even if he needs to refer you to another doc.
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 another doctor 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.
Great doctor, better shorts!
Somewhat cold and brisk; did not fully feel like I was being taken seriously. Did not seem to recognize I was in a lot of pain and had a conflict with work requirements.
My son was pleased with Dr. Weinstein. He is an athlete and was hoping that the Dr. would have a great understanding of his injury. Dr. Weinstein was well informed and shared his knowledge with us. We will use him again.
Muy profesional, pero he tratado de comunicarme con ellos nuevamente porque necesito que pidan los CD's del MRI y no devuelven las llamadas.Mal por el equipo de support
Dr Weinstein was a great help
He made me visit his office twice after the initial visit just to get diagnostic results. Once just to tell me I had to visit again in order to get my full results.
I recommend Dr. Weinstein. He was also very punctual.
love Dr Weinstein and his staff.
Dr. Weinstein is very professional and friendly I would highly recommend him, also his staff was very friendly and helpful. Jack K
The whole office was lovely from beginning to end.
My visit with the Dr. was great. He was very professional and friendly...he explained everything to me. The staff was polite and so nice. It was a Great experience.
Doctor rescheduled appt 3 times
He is a really clear and informative doctor. Puls no waiting time.
Had an 11:30am appointment and ended up seeing Dr Weinstein at 12pm. He actually apologized for the "Long" wait time. He is the first doctor I know of to apologize for tardiness. From the receptionist, to the medical assistant to Dr Weinstein, everyone was super friendly and helpful. He even took the time to go over the MRI pictures with me so that I can better understand my injury and the healing process. I high recommend Dr Weinstein!!
Understanding, helpful, explained in detail
