10 years ago I was diagnosed by Dr. Greg Weinstein as having cancer of the tongue. He told me that he and Dr. Bert O'Malley had developed a robotic procedure (TORS) at the Hospital of the University Of Pennsylvania (today, TORS is used around the world) and that I would qualify for the program. With lots of prayers, the technical skill of a great surgeon, Dr. Greg Weinstein and the care of his staff I was put on the road to recovery. I cannot say enough about the professionalism and caring attitude of Dr. Weinstein and his team. They spend the necessary time with a patient to insure that a person understands the risks and rewards associated with the procedures and type of cancer being dealt with and then meet with many specialists such as Radiologists, Chemotherapists and others to develop a program specifically designed for the patient and their cancer issues. Five Stars go out to Dr. Weinstein and his team at Otorhinolaryngology: Head and Neck Surgery Department at HUP and a great big Thank You to all.
Although I'm not one to write reviews I feel compelled to compliment Dr. Weinstein and his outstanding staff. His professional staff was compassionate, friendly and comforting in a trying time. Dr. Weinstein saved my life after catching a life threatening mistake another facility made (not affiliated with UPENN). His confidence and knowledge is reassuring. I will go to UPENN from now on even though I live in Lancaster county. I highly recommend Dr. Weinstein, his excellent staff and UPENN. Jeff W.
A kind and confident Dr. Found three cancers in my head and neck, treated and removed all of them. My family and I can not say enough about Dr. Weinstein and his staff. The Best
Dr Weinstein saved my life. When i first learned i had cancer, I was in shock. The first hospital told me surgery was not an option. Dr Weinstein's first words to me at our initial visit, after reviewing all my scans and a thorough exam were "This is cureable with a good prognosis for a high quality of life. You won't like the rest of what I am going to say, but that I can tell you." He was right on both counts. The ordeal of treatment was tough, very tough, but the results are great. Not only am I now NED, but am better shape now than I have been in over 30 years. Through the treatments, the Dr and his entire team really understood what a cancer patient is going through. They all were super. The only reason I checked four stars for promptness was to be honest. Sometimes the Dr runs behind on his appointments, but I have been on both sides of that equation, meaning I was the person he "dropped everything" for to address my condition and I have waited longer than usual for treatment. Knowing the first instance makes it easy to understand and accept the second. Overall, we (my wife and I) always found Dr. Weinstein (and his team) to be professional, caring, honest, straightforward and supportive. I am very grateful and thankful for him. As I said, he saved my life.
Just prior my 50th birthday, I received the news that I had tonsil cancer. After researching options, I was fortunate to obtain an appointment with Dr. Weinstein at Penn Medicine. When I first met Dr. Weinstein, I was immediately impressed with his compassion, and his concern that after the procedure, that I would return to living with minimal effects on the quality of my life. It is now seven years since Dr. Weinstein performed robotic surgery to remove the tonsil cancer, and my quality of life is still outstanding. I had a complete voice recovery a short time after the procedure and my snoring issues disappeared as a bonus. During my follow up visits, I witnessed doctors from all over the world coming to learn about the Surgery (TORS) procedure from Dr. Weinstein. TORS was invented at Penn Medicine by Dr. Gregory Weinstein and Dr. Bert OâMalley. Dr. Weinsteinâs excitement about making patients whole again with the least amount of suffering made an impression on me. That is definitely a person who cares deeply about his patients. Winning the fight against cancer takes a team. I am forever thankful that Dr. Weinstein was leading the team, along with the group of very special nurses at Penn Medicine.
In a few short week's we will celebrate the feast of Thanksgiving. This year i will dedicate that day to say thanks to Dr. Gregory Weinstein at the U of P. My story began years ago when I abused my body and thought that nothing will ever happen to me. Well you guessed it nine short years ago i contacted that dreaded disease called cancer. After a series of treatments at a local hospital they recommended that i contact Dr. Greg at the U. of P. After the initial consultation with Dr. Greg i thought this man is all business. He was truthful and upfront with me from the very first day i met him. You see Dr. Weinstein didn't need me i needed him. I decided i wanted him because he said that he could help me and that's what i wanted to hear. Being a surgeon takes a special person and Dr. Greg and in my mind finishes at the top of the class in both as a doctor and a person. Dr. Weinstein is also fortunate to be surrounded by a first class medical staff. They include Jeanie who i think is the doctors right arm. And then by his two speech pathologist Loren and Trish who are without a doubt the best you could ever ask for. Thank you to my three girls. But getting back to Dr. Greg i highly recommend to those who are in need of medical care of this kind you don't want none other than this terrific surgeon. I want to thank you for allowing me to watch my grandchildren grow up. So as we sit down for Thanksgiving dinner this year my family and I will thank Dr. Weinstein and his wonderful staff. P.S. Doctor Greg you are the best. thanks for being a friend and a great doctor.
I wish to share my thoughts with anyone who is contemplating being treated by Dr. Weinstein. Without going into great detail, you cannot in my opinion find a more compassionate surgeon with impeccable skills than the good doctor. His staff members are among the best I have ever meet; they are all a reflection of the Doctor's demeanor. By all means, do your research, and when you make your decision, you will not go wrong if you choose Dr. Weinstein. Good Luck to you in your treatment.
Doctor Weinstein's excellent skill and innovative technique saved my voice. Absolutely professional and top-notch care.
Gratitude and High praise for my Quality of Life. Nowhere Id rather be in world for treatment.
Dr. Weinstein and Staff at U. P. on January 1994 I had extensive cancer surgery on my neck that took 12.5 hours. I also had postoperative radiation therapy around my jaw where the jaw was opened up to get access to the cancer. After radiation it did not heal, and I had to undergo hyperbaric oxygen treatments. After all the care from Dr. Weinstein and his Staff at U. P. I am 22 years cancer free. Thanks Dr. Barb. & Tom
Dr Weinstein & team at PENN were fantastic from surgery through full recovery!! Incredible experience!!!
Our personal experience with Dr. Weinstein is and was Fabulous, first let me start by saying, it was 22 yrs since our first encounter with the Dr. and his staff, and if it wasn't for Dr. Weinstein and his staff, I would not have my Mom with us today, My mom (BARBARA RICHMOND from JIM THORPE,PA.) was diagnosed with cancer 22 yrs ago, she never smoked, never drank, then we seen the Dr. and his staff for the first time, My MOM went through something I hope I never have to see again in my lifetime, she had cancer in the limpnodes in her throat, I've never seen a person who could have survived a surgery in which she had, but with the grace of GOD, DR. WEINSTEIN, and his STAFF, it made my mom a better stronger person in which she is today and cancer free , and she is 72 yrs old now and looking just as lovely as she did before her surgery 22 yrs ago. So all I can say is THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for giving my MOM all these years with our family cancer free. We will always be so grateful of Dr. Weinstein and his staff for all thay have done for our family.....
Dr. Weinstein, a warm, caring, experienced doctor, focuses on you exclusively healing the cancer.
Dr. Weinstein is the best! I was treated by him for tonsillar cancer and will be forever grateful for his expertise and care. He was kind and always willing to take the time to explain everything to me.
Dr Weinstein is the BEST. He answers your questions and explains exactly what is going to happen. He is very experienced and knowledgeable in his field. Fully recommend him. The wait time gets a little long but that is because he is in demand.Chuck Russell
I find Dr Weinstein very accurate andinformative with my problem. Very caring and set me at ease on the very first appointment. I felt very confident with him. I would recommend him and his staff is wonderful.
Yesterday was my first meeting with Doctor Weinstein. Both my wife and I were so impressed with his professional and CARING manner. His attention to detail and explaination of the whole proces(surgery/surgeries/radaition/chemo)was complete and thorough. When I got my initial DX (throat/neck cancer) I asked my referring Doctor "If you were sitting in the chair instead of me who would you want to see"?Without hesitation he said Dr. Weinstein!
Extremely skilled surgeon. I would trust him without concern. But is a bit arrogant about his own importance and loses interest in patients a year or so after surgical work is completed. Acts as though follow-up checks are an impostion on his time.
Dr. Weinstein did a wonderful job removing my tumor. He is an excellent surgeon, an expert I would recommend to anyone. My recovery was easier and shorter than I anticipated. All the staff at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania were outstanding. Dr. Lori, who did my needle Ct scan biopsy was one of the nicest, most informative and reassuring doctors I've ever met. I can't say enough about HUP-they are simply the best!
I found Dr Weinstein to be professional and his personal touch, with me and family, was outstanding. He spent time at first visit and the follow-up.
I have been sending patients to Dr. Weinstein since 1991, he is an outstanding clinician. My patients have consistently told me that he has superb bedside manner and that he is a wonderful human being. His cancer results are outstanding. Thank goodness we have Dr. Weinstein to refer patients to.
My patients have consistently told me about Dr. Weinstein's poor bedside manner. He is uncaring and extremely disrespectful toward his patients, some who are in the process of dealing with life threatening cancers. He is a man who wants respect, but will give it to no one else he sees "beneath" him. I will no longer refer my patients to him and will tell my numerous fellow colleagues to do the same. As a physician, I find it a shame when a physician acts the way Dr. Weinstein does for whatever reason. Patients do need doctor, but they also need someone they can trust.
