I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Weinberg. He took a lot of time listening to me explain everything, asked thoughtful questions, and did a thorough physical exam. He made me feel so much better and was very comforting and thorough in his explanations of my questions. 10/10 could not ask for a better doctor!!!!


Outstanding physician!


He is a good & kind doctor. #1. *Weinberg.


the provider was very nice, personal, and very understanding. I really enjoyed the appointment


Very compassionate dr.!


Dr. Weinburg is wonderful!


Provider did not look at records, couldn't remember what tests he ordered & after the last test he gave me no conclusion, explanation and didn't schedule follow up.




Informative yet answered all my questions, helped me relax, great bedside manner, I was so impressed, knowledgeable.


*Dr. Weinberg is a wonderful physician! Extremely pleased with care.
