Easy to talk to non-judgemental
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 in full 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 through my 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!
Had a great experience with Dr. Wiener! He is a very thorough, knowledgeable psychiatrist. Warning, his office is a little cluttered, so as long as you can look past that, I highly recommend Dr. Wiener!
When I tried to talk him about my concerns . He always divert the topics. disrespectful! my symptom got worse when I was visited him.
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 comes to psychiatrists, I have been around the block a few times. This guy is good. His messy office added to the charm.
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.
He kept the same dose of medication for me even though I told him I was having a problem.
I would absolutely NOT recommend this doctor to anyone.
I loved Dr. Stephen's office and he made me feel welcome being a first time patient.
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 was reading 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.
Very nice Dr. much more accessable than other's from the past!
Very attentive, detailed and caring. His professionalism is apparent. Glad to have found Dr. Wiener.
Though I am sure Dr. Wiener is a great clinician, I didn't have the best experience with him and would have appreciated a more culturally sensitive clinician.
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 for his patients and knows to be a supporter and when to be a problem-solver.
Easy to talk to.
I had a great first visit with Dr. Wiener. He was able to see me right on time and was friendly, knowledgable, and kind.
Dr. Wiener clearly puts the focus on his patient. He has a warm and calm demeanor. He listened, asked thoughtful questions, then explained why he thinks a change my medication would benefit me. I have a great deal of confidence in him already.
Very prompt, excellent demeanor, very easy to talk to.
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 just wasn'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 he wasn't discussing enough much about my mental health and medication and discussed more on background and other things outside of it.
Doctor Wiener is great. He was great at listening and truly cares about me as a patient. Thank you Doc!
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 appointment like 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.
Dr Wiener was professional and straight forward.has a nice office
I found Dr. Wiener to be very professional, and really wanting to help. Very much appreciated here.
Great guy and made me feel like he really cared about my well being.
Easy to talk to! His office is cluttered but he is focused on what is most important
Seemed very intelligent and was easy to talk to.
If you're looking for an attentive and quick assessment regarding psychological pharmacology, this is your guy.
Very nice, comfortable to have a conversation with
business as usual, but casual
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.
Staff was friendly and professional.
Dr. Wiener is very intelligent and made me feel very comfortable. I was happy with the visit and would highly recommend him.
Dr Wiener is really nice, he makes you feel like you could talk about anything and not be judged. He always tells you like it is, he doesn't sugar coat anything & I will be his patient until he retires:)
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 been seeing Dr. Wierner for a couple of years now. Excellent clinician and calm relaxed friendly but professional manner always the same.
Dr. Wiener took the time to get to know me and talked at length about my concerns. He talked me through all possible action steps and made sure I was happy with the one we picked.
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 how he 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.
It was my first time seeing a psychiatrist and Dr. Wiener made me feel very comfortable to talk to. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is searching for a psychiatrist. Thanks Dr. Wiener!
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 respectable practitioner -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.
Very attentive, warm, and trustworthy. He's incredibly smart and encouraging, which is important in someone treating things like depression and anxiety.
I picked Dr. Wiener because he was available for a last minute appointment before moving, but was very pleasantly surprised by how good he was. He was great to talk to and went above & beyond with helpful advice. If I wasn't leaving the area, I would absolutely go see him again!
He listened well and is very intelligent. He cares about the patient's needs and know his meds well.
I thought he was nice and he made me feel welcomed, he made me feel like I could tell him anything. He took his time and listened to me and my concerns, by the end of my appointment. I knew that I would be back to see him the following month. He's a very nice and interesting doctor.
very nice considerate educated man!
Beautiful office, comfortable environment, staff was very friendly and respectful and Dr Wiener is awesome. Very respectful, friendly, listened to all my concerns, and helped me the best he could. I am so happy I found this site and this Doctor. Thank you
My appt. went well he asked a lot of questions and listened to everything I said.
Very knowledgeable and listens to everything you have to say. He has helped me alot.
I saw Dr. Wiener twice. He spent the entire second visit on his laptop, DURING OUR APPOINTMENT. He was nowhere near as thorough as other doctors I have seen in the past, barely asked me any questions about my psychiatric history and was completely uncommunicative when I had a problem filling one of my prescriptions.
Very intelligent. Office was very messy - reminiscent of a sort of disorganized genius type. I came to him with a difficult problem and he was very knowledgeable, up to date, and actually listened to what I had to say. Also has convenient hours if you work 9-5.
Excellent Psychiatrist . Very knowledgable and helpful in explaining different questions I had and the need for tests to check for hypothyroid that my PCP and Obgyn had missed . As a first time meeting I was pleasantly surprised to feel comfortable and impressed
I am now 27 years old and had been suffering for four years with bipolar disorder and severe anxiety. Both crippling. I had seen doctor after doctor and nothing worked or they said they didn't know what to do with me and dropped me. Dr. Wiener booked an appointment with me almost immediately. He has changed my life completely . I am now able to attend schol full time and go out and do normal activities with friends and family. My life has changed so much I never thought I would be where I am now and I have him to thank for it. He is caring and listens to everything you say and is very professional. I would recommend him to anyone that needed mental health help.
Doctor Wiener was very comfortable to talk to. It was obvious that he was listening and understanding. I am very confident with him as a doctor.
Real professional who impressed me with his years of experiemce and knowledge of former professionsl or assocoates i had encountered. Direct, clear , and detailed?
He is the best doctor I have ever had the honor to meet. PERIOD.
Attentive Personable Experienced Exuded confidence in being able to instill hope.. Bottom line.. patient felt uplifted upon leaving office.. Highly recommend.
It was a good visit and I made a follow up appointment visit as well. Quality of service could be improved. Felt like he was not giving me 100% of his attention.
He is calm,competent, direct, empathetic, funny, and has a great office. Very professional and human at the same time.
He was an attentive listener, personable and kind. The first doctor to live up to his credentials.
Dr Weiner actually spent time listening to me and trying to understand me. His office is sunny and full of plants which makes it a very comfortable and soothing environment. I initially only went for a one time appointment, but he is so much kinder than my old doctor so I will keep seeing him.
Dr Weiner is very friendly and really listens to his patients. His office staff is very friendly and very helpful. I was seen immediately and during the consultation he explained very patiently his diagnosis and treatment plan. I highly recommend him
Thorough and right to the point. Asked great probing questions. I felt listened to and understood.
Excellent visit, very polite, nice area in Newton, will continue to see.
Very productive and straight to the point.
