All phone calls are returned the same day and urgent calls are answered promptly. Patients calling with problems are seen quickly.

Dr. Weinstein is a great doctor and very friendly. He definitely takes his time with you and gets back with lab results super quickly. I always have good experiences seeing Dr. Weinstein. The only downside is the wait time. I usuallyend up waiting a while to be seen, and for today's appointment I waited over an hour. However, I appreciate how he makes himself available over the phone if necessary. I will definitely return.

Dr. Weinstein and the nurse he works with (sorry I don't remember her name) were absolutely wonderful. Dr. Weinstein has the best bedside manner I've ever experienced with a medical doctor. He really does listen to your concerns and rememberseverything you mention/want to address. Definitely found the gynecologist for me!

My office visit was great. Dr. Weinstein is really nice and makes sure you're comfortable and know exactly what's going on at all times. He's super patient and happy to answer your questions thoroughly. I got in early to fill inmy paper work, was seen promptly at my appointment time and was out in less than an hour, but wasn't rushed in anyway. I highly recommend this Dr. Weinstein.

Very nice man - enjoyable to talk to and made me feel very comfortable. Definitely not a fast paced environment, but if you're willing to trade off not getting in and out quickly for really personal treatment, this is the placefor you. Gyno appointments aren't exactly fun, but this was the most enjoyable it possibly could have been.

Dr. W is great - very compassionate and professional. There was no wait time and my appointment did not feel rushed at all. His office staff however, have room for improvement. The receptionist is extremely rude and off-putting. My previousvisit with the dr was exactly one year, one month, and two days prior to this appointment. She got very nasty and angrily asked why I hasn't been in in two years (???). She then proceeded to loudly drill me with medical questions that really would be best handled by a doctor in a closed room, not a secretary in front of a waiting room. The woman who takes your height and weight is nice, but I had called before my appointment because I never received a confirmation and she said she hadn't put it in the computer (This happened for a previous appt as well - not sure why the delay). In the notes section of my zocdoc I listed I needed an ultrasound, but she didn't mention that the office doesn't offer ultrasounds on the phone, just simply stated everything was fine with my form. I found out after I got there and had to put up with the secretary that it wasn't offered. I will go back to dr. W, but hope the receptionist is on vacation that day

Dr. Weinstein was very nice and efficient, and answered all of my questions. However, the office was messy- files everywhere- and the nurses/administrators were yelling in frustration about various documents. They knew I was in the waitingroom and could hear everything. This yelling included a patient's name and some specific medical information, which was a violation of her privacy. I also waited almost an hour before my exam began.

First visit to OBGYN - ever, at age 31. Didn't know what to expect, but office visit with just to chat was comfortable and calming (he had some knowledge of a rare condition, and honest to let me know that hewill have to look it up further), didn't rush me along. The exam was professional, appropriate bedside, and otherwise gentle.

I've been a patient of Dr. Weinstein for almost 5 years. He's really someone who cares about his patients and gets to know you to provide the best treatment. The wait time is a little long but that's only because it'sjust him at his practice. The waiting room is comfortable and has lots of reading the material. The exam rooms are large and have changing rooms inside. He's a very straight to the point doctor without sugar coating anything and that's something I really appreciate. He gets backs to you with lab results right away. His staff must truly enjoy working for him and also get to know you by name. My only issue is parking in center city. I wish his office could validate parking. Overall I would highly recommend Dr. Weinstein and plan on being a patient of his as long as he's in practice.

Oh man he was so sweet and really cares about you. He took the time to ask about my history and everything and before I left he told me I was probably a good nanny (which is my current job now)because I was a sweet girl. He made my first obgyn exam less nerve wracking and he threw in some jokes here and there to make me less nervous. Awesome and definitely going back!!!

I was so happy and so thrilled after I left Dr. Weinstein's office. I am always so scared going to the doctor's -regardless of what it is for, and I loved how we sat down in his office first and talkedabout what I was concerned about and my background/my familie's background. I love how he went into depth about every little thing with every single issue and concern that I had. He is so kind and so so so intelligent! I just moved into the area and I am so thrilled that I decided to see him. I won't go to any other ob-gyn! He truly made my experience wonderful! Thank you, Dr. Weinstein!

Did the impossible and made the OBGYN enjoyably. The wait was a little long but that doesn't seem to be how it normally is. I was given a heads up as soon as I walked about the wait and was offereda chance to reschedule. Dr Weinstein is very professional but is still so human to be around. Funny, calming, direct and all around a nice person to talk to. His staff is just as charming as him. I'm beyond pleased with this practice, I highly recommend him.

Dr. Weinstein is my favorite doctor out of everyone I've seen. He really cares about your overall health and not just your gynecological problems. But the other reviewers are correct- the receptionist absolutely terrible. I feel like I haveno privacy and frankly it's just annoying. I never expected it to be that bad. Besides that I would HIGHLY recommend this doctor. Everything from his touch to his voice is soft and caring.

My experience at Dr. Weinstein's office was very, very good. I was very apprehensive at going to a gynecologist since it had been many years since I had been to one, but he made me feel right at home and hisquiet and calm manner helped to settle my nerves. I feel like I got a very thorough exam, and would definitely recommend Dr. Weinstein's office to anyone looking for a really good and caring gynecologist.
