I liked Dr. Weiss a lot. He took me in right away, was welcoming, patient, and even appropriately humorous. What I liked the best though that he did not rush me, carefully heard out my complaints and walked me through the next steps/procedures. What I loved the most was that he personally called me to let me know one of the time slots we had discussed for a procedure had been filled, and later when I picked a slot and confirmed by calling his voicemail, he again took care to call and email me to confirm that we're on.

Personable attitude with focus on patient, Robert Weiss carefully listened about my health history and promptly suggested best course of action in compassionate consideration of my general concerns. I am disabled under the act and I have been involved with almost every hospital/doctor in NYC, so, while I am a new patient of his, my experience with Doc Weiss and his office was highly satisfactory in every sense.

Although a friendly doctor, my evaluation was cursory at best leading to an incorrect diagnosis, wrong treatment prescribed, and needless pain. I only found out after seeing a second opinion.

I really liked the doctor but he was very resistant to testing for an illness that I was trying to exclude, even when I hv the classic symptoms. My primary care wanted me tested for it. It is okay if it eventually gets excluded but The dr did not listen to me and was eager to exclude it out of hand due to it being somewhat rare. I really need to get it excluded and got a second opinion and the doctor prescribed the test for it. I liked Dr Weiss a lot. He's really cool, but I really needed him to have an open mind so I can get a correct diagnosis.

I was very sick when I arrived, and as a result arrive 15 minutes late and without insurance card. I was very embarrassed, but his staff was friendly and took me in right away. Dr. Weiss did a great job of walking me through my diagnosis and giving me some dietary suggestions as well as next steps. He put me at ease and was very informative.

He spent only a few minutes with me, and I didn't feel like it was enough time to explore what was wrong with my stomach. He ordered just one lab test, and said that if it turned up negative (it did!) I should just take some over the counter medications. When I went over this information with my PCP, she was very surprised, explaining that he should have ordered several other lab tests and that the over the counter medications would only really provide temporary relief without truly addressing the problem. She was pretty annoyed and referred me to a different GI doctor.

Doctor simply exudes intelligence and ease. He was personable, confident and knowledgeable, and the staff was very friendly. I felt that the doctor very efficiently absorbed a ton of information with my medical history and concisely explained the situation and appropriate follow up. Further, he seemed to understand how to deal with my insurance and suggested an appropriate timetable for scheduling procedures given the appropriate bureaucratic hoops.
