I described to Dr Werber how I attempted to relieve my symptoms in the past to understand how to correct my error. He may have thought that I was dictating to him about what should be done. He became irate andforcefully stated that he was the expert and that I must heed his words. I think that there was a misunderstanding here but I was afraid to say anything after this. The rest of the encounter went find and he addressed my concerns.

He’s a good doctor who knows what he’s doing, I do however wish he would slow down a little bit as far as explaining things over and ask his patients if they totally understand or have any questions, my last visithe rushed the treatment and left to get the next patient. He seemed to be in a hurry.

It has been very poor experience that I have. before I made the appointment, I uploaded a photo of my medical insurance card, which can tell what exact medical plan is. It is very surprising that a office clerk told methey do not accept my medical plan, when I got to the office on time.

He is excellent. He assessed me right away and made a great plan for me. His staff made booking the operation easy- all I had to do was basically do pre-op stuff and show up! I had a great surgical experience and post-op as well! Super knowledgeable and kind.

After waiting more than an hour with a five year old we were finally seen. Dr. Weber came in and started a nice rapport with my son (the patient) but all went down hill from there. Once he examined my sonhe gave his opinion of what was needed to treat him and never looked up from his ipad again. He told me, a nervous mom, that it was either, "have him live with it or cut him open."

Dr. Weber was a very professional and thorough doctor. I had been treated by another ENT but was still experiencing discomfort. Dr. Weber explained everything to me as he was examining me and he listened and answered all my questions. Eventhough he could not relieve my discomfort at the moment I left with a plan. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Werber is probably a good doctor. However he was not very friendly. He did not even crack a smile. He was all business. The audiologist was SO unfriendly. I would not go back to this office.

He was pleasant and professional and got "right to work." I believe he gave a thorough examination and asked the right questions. He made practical suggestions to relieve my situational discomfort while assuring me the problem was temporary .
