Was charged full hourly rate instead of my co-pay amount with the assurance I would receive a refund once payment was received from insurance company. Doctor never filed a claim with insurance company (why would he, he's already been paid infull by me). I never received a refund and can't move forward on my own without him filing the claim. Simply the worst. Avoid at all costs.

Horrible. Guy just sat there and took notes the entire time and barely said anything during or after our session. A big waste of time.

Dr. Wiener is great. He's not everyone's cup of tea, so if you don't understand sarcasm or are expecting to see a Dr.Oz type of person, go see someone else. One of the things I dread is having to go throughmy ENTIRE history when seeing a new doctor. Dr. Wiener made this process much less painful by making it more like a conversation rather than an interrogation. My session with him was relaxing and fun. I've already referred him to a friend who's doctor had recently relocated. Looking forward to our future sessions!

I had seen from other reviews how professional and how calm Dr. Wiener was, and I fully agree with all of that. But to add to that, he was brilliant, extraordinarily knowledgeable, and amazingly perceptive. And believe me, when it comesto psychiatrists, I have been around the block a few times. This guy is good. His messy office added to the charm.

He was nice, but laughed at what I was telling him. Fortunately I was meeting with him about something I am not very insecure about, but would not recommend him for more sensitive topics. The office was chaotic and he wasreading texts while I was talking to him. He also openly discussed my visit with the front desk attendant in front of other patients in the waiting room. It was very difficult to get time-sensitive follow-up documents from him as well.

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr.Wiener. He was very attentive and recommended an excellent treatment plan for my issues. We talked about potential options and he was a great listener and took the time to understand my unique situation.At the end of the visit i was satisfied with the conclusion we reached for my treatment plan. Very disarming and professional.

I was happy with our initial consultation. Dr Wiener was disarming and showed a genuine interest in my situation and personal history. He listened patiently and non-judgmentally as I expressed my dissatisfaction with previous providers.He heard me and recommended a corresponding path forward. I look forward to making progress and to our follow-up appointment.

Dr Weiner is a bit eccentric, but very kind and very perceptive. He approached my situation with a perfect balance of compassion and practicality, far better than what I've heard about most psychiatrists. It's obvious that he really cares forhis patients and knows to be a supporter and when to be a problem-solver.

I really liked Dr. Wiener. I got a kick out of his office-- it's messy, sure, but the mess brings some interest to the environment. All of the plants and the big windows were really nice to look at. It justwasn't a stuffy office and I really appreciate that. He really wanted to get to know me and asked me more questions than all of the other five prescribers I've had before him combined. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with him, and I feel very comfortable knowing that he makes his email and cell number available to patients in case of an emergency. None of my other psychiatrists had that kind of availability.

Room is definitely messy with papers all over the floor. I recommend Dr. Wiener to implement a filing system in place, otherwise it leaves a negative impression for new patients. Overall the appointment was fine, but it felt like sometimes hewasn't discussing enough much about my mental health and medication and discussed more on background and other things outside of it.

Dr. Stephen Wiener was very personable and easy to talk to and took a sincere interest in my wellbeing as patient. He made me feel comfortable and took his time getting to know me, and did not rush through the appointmentlike other psychiatrists I have seen in the past. His questions about my health history, family, as well as my personal and professional interests were very thoughtful and he demonstrated a genuine interest in wanting to know what was going on in my life. He addressed my medical needs accurately and appropriately. His office staff was also very welcoming and accommodating. I would highly recommend the office and would return again in the future.

The other ZocDoc reviews I read before going were spot on: Dr. Wiener was very intelligent and knowledgeable, and seemed genuinely committed to my well-being. Also, every flat surface of his office is covered in paperwork and just an absurd amount of potted plants.

The office is incredibly disorganized... papers, magazines, and samples everywhere. And plants... every possible flat surface is covered in plants. That said, he's an incredibly nice, conversational and gave the impression of genuine concern. I'd recommend in as a doctor and person, just perhaps bring along a cleaning crew.

I have seen Dr. Weiner about 6 times over the last 8 months mostly for med management. He seems to genuinely care about my well-being, how things are going, and is receptive to discussing whatever is going on. I like howhe offers insight with reference to recent studies and from his experience with patients and I often leave our sessions with a better understand of myself and human nature in general. I highly recommend him for med management.

Disorganized office (not attractive or encouraging) Looks like hes moving in/out...but he's not. He's so disorganized that I had to remind him to return my insurance card... Certainly does not have the physical appearance of a respectablepractitioner -sweatshirt, casual pants...come on! Decent listener, but not great. One visit and he is already changing my medication. Pretty sure I'm gonna stick to what I'm on and find someone a little more trustworthy. The rest of the reviews were spot-on, but he possessed some qualities I sought, and gave him a shot. Oh, and he wants me to wait A MONTH before my next session...I might as well analyze and medicate myself.
