Reviewed on Sep 29, 2021

I have been going to dr Weiss for abdominal surgery/procedure for 5-6 years. He is well versed in his field and respected by his residents (who trail into the room behind him) and the staff. It is obvious he loves what he does. He has great patient interactions and the many patients I have met during my stays that I got to know walking the halls (gets rid of intestinal gas from surgery), all felt the same way. I wouldn't go to any other surgeon - dr Weiss knows how My body work now and remembers, which from the number of patients he has, is remarkable. He is a gifted surgeon and physician.
