He Jumped to Conclusions and was easily offended

I happen to have an atypical staph infection that does not have some of the normal infection indicators. At that time, I had the infection for 9 months and already had seen several doctors and had tried several antibiotics. I sent my medical reports to him beforehand. He came into the room and before I even said a word, he said I didn't have an infection and that I read something on the internet and was imagining my symptoms. I said that was not possible given that I was complaining about the same symptoms to other doctors a month before the staph ever showed up in a lab report. He accused me of purposely contaminating my sample that I gave at his office, just because I happen to take a longer time. And what would have been the reason for this--to take strong antibiotics when I didn't need to? How absurd! When I tried to show him information on the staph from expert sources, he refused to acknowledge the information and what he said was wrong according to staph experts. Instead of considering the information, he immediately got offended because he has an enormous ego, and lashed out at me to see a psychiatrist. BTW - this staph infection had shown up in numerous samples and everything else had been ruled out. So, the evidence was on my side. He also did not order the right test which would have shown infection. Subsequent tests showed that it is this staph. Thus, he did not treat me with the recommended antibiotic which would require an IV. It's amazing to me that such an experienced doctor could be so wrong. He basically jumped to conclusions and it was more important for him to be "right," than to listen to the patient and find out the truth.

Long wait. Staff had an attitude. Weinroth didn't run a culture or offer a biopsy, just said I had an allergic reaction. Saw another doctor who determined the cause of my symptoms and it was NOT an allergy and could have been diagnosed by a biopsy.

Dr. Weinroth is nothing short of amazing.He spends all the time with you that you need to get any questions answered or concerns addressed. He and his staff are friendly and welcoming.He was able to diagnose my Lyme disease almost immediately, when the ER staff at the hospital had no idea what was wrong with me. With his fast intervention, and subsequent treatment, I was able to recover completely, with none of the nasty issues that Lyme can cause.In the past, he was able to diagnose an issue with my former partner, who was in a hospital in Philly over the phone, when again, the Dr's and hospital staff there were unable to. This surely saved this persons life, as he was diagnosed with a rare but extremely serious case of food poisoning. Had it not been diagnosed by Dr. Weinroth, this person may not have survived.I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking the services of a well qualified internist and/or infectious diease specialist.He is truely the Best in the DC area !
