My husband and I learned things about my "problem" that had never been explained to us before. This visit with *Dr. Weinberg's recommendations for follow up care by my family physician changed my life!!!


Dr. listened to my description of my problem, asked for more info. made recommended further testing & gave advise for controlling my problem.


I have & do recommend him. I appreciate him & his thoroughness & seeing me as a whole person, not just a few GI problems.


This doctor was one of the best and most knowledgeable doctors I have seen. He was great and I want to thank him.


I didn't mind waiting because when I was in crisis *Dr. Weinberg took his time to assess me and develop a plan. I know he would do it for those that morning.


I have considerable confidence in *Dr. Weinberg after my visit.


Very impressed that doctor responded to my questions via the internet too.
