Dr Weinstein is an excellent doctor. He has performed 4 surgeries on me: left knee, right knee, left shoulder twice.
5
06/12/2019
Dr. Weinstein was recommended by two good friends. I am so happy I came to him since he totally understood the issues with my knee. He recommended a course of physical therapy and shots which is consistent with what I was hoping to get versus surgery as the first option. Previous doctor only recommended surgery which I am not ready for at this point. I strongly recommend Dr. Weinstein.

For a first visit, I was impressed with the efficiency and speed of getting me setup as a new patient and being called in to begin the appointment. I was evaluated, and sent for x-rays within 10 minutes, and within the next 10 minutes I was speaking with the PA about what could be seen in the x-rays and the physical exam was underway. When the Doctor came into the room, I was very much aware of what treatment was to be performed and what follow-up would be needed. Overall it was a very good experience.

I was suggested by two close family friends to see Dr. Weinstein for a 2nd opinion. Needless to say I should have gone to him in the first place. Very informative, comforting in the explanation of what the diagnosis is and how to correct and what needs to be done in follow up. What got me was his "We WILL get you back to where you need to be"....Very reassuring.
