Have you seen Dr. Isaac Dweck?
May 7th, 2017Need home visiting doctor & was jerked around by staff with office managers blessing
My mom needs a home visiting doctor, I asked for forms to be sent in mail. Called after one week, again after two weeks - never came. At this point thinking its not a good sign & probably wont hire. Staff offers to take info over phone, I ask for office manager to call me. No phone call from manager. I did get a message from staff stating since they offered help over phone they would not be accepting patient. I call office manager Linda to inform her of my experience who states its her fault as they are down a "provider" & should have been honest with me. So they jerked me around on purpose never mailing the forms for two weeks? CLASS ACT. Like I dont have enough to deal with being a caregiver to a very sick mother, now dealing with unprofessional, misleading office staff. I hope the doctor knows who is representing him & how he needs new staff. They are not accepting new patients, need a seminar on communication 101 not to mention plain ethics.

I had a friend swear by what a great dr. Dweck is. my experience along with family members was very, very poor. I first went for back issues. I think he just assumed I was looking for drugs like vicotin, even though he gave them to my a 20 year old who sold them to friends, I was told. Crazy. I needed help on several occasions and was treated me terribly by him and staff are unfriendly too. I went to him for the last time after waiting 3 hours to get into a room (his staff is horrid, rude, and obnoxious, much like the dr.) My husband was with me, he was mortified on several levels. I had sores in my mouth, I was dehydrated terribly. At the time I did not know I had renal failure. Dr. Deck never considered a DX of dehydration. He said I should get tested for aids. He gave this same DX for my 90 year old grandmother. Dr. Deck is obese, I don't care about this with anyone, but my 90 pound daughter at age 20 (she's 5'2"), I brought to his office for the flu or something minor like this. He told us that just because you're thin doesn't mean you r healthy. Oh LORD!! he's probably the worst dr. I have ever seen. Long waits are just expected and with myself, he never gave me the courtesy of listening and spent maybe 10 minutes after those long waits. He knew me from taking my best friend who died several years ago. I went to dr appointments a lot with her, she needed help getting around from her long battle of cancer (she died at age 50). He was her primary and although he was not responsible for her her death, he did not respect her wishes of NO MORPHINE, which was given to her at home through her iv unknowingly under dweck from bed side nurses. She would scream at night petrified, she had no idea about the morphine and was not medicated efficiently. This led to full blown panic attacks and her last hospital visit. She was not in any oxygen distress, but deck pressured her at the er. Respirator or morphine? Power of attorney said no morphine upon her wishes, but the family listened to dweck and other drs who were unfamiliar with her. They put her on morphine where she showed no sign of oxygen depletion as she slept the last 3 days of her life away. As far as I'm concerned, he thinks he knows what is best, disconcerning patients wishes. Even their last wishes. Horrible. He owns a nursing home, where elderly patients of his go ( like my grandmother). More money for him? You make a decision. She died there alone, we still don't know exactly how. I hate that she died alone. She asked a nurse for a blanket because she was cold at 8 am. We were on our way to visit her that morning, granted she was a complainer!! She died 1/2 hour later. I hope this helps for anyone to make your decision. Hard to find good drs Anymore. Agh. By the way, neither myself or grandmother have aids! We were tested, which was crazy in itself. God bless.

I did not answer the wait time because it varies. It can be long but I do not mind since I know Dr. Dweck takes his time with you during you visit. You do not see that in Dr's. much these days. So if I have to wait a long time I know it is because he is treating his patient the same as he will me. The brand ne rebuilt office does have a mildew smell.
