Horrible experience!

This doctor was totally unprepared for my initial visit. He had not reviewed any of the medical records or lab results from my primary care physician and really had no idea why I was even there. He ran tests that were inconclusive and didn't follow up even after I called to say I was having concerns. Even worse, his office staff has a very elitist attitude. They are extremely rude and confrontational- very very unprofessional. Trying to get a person on the phone is also challenging. 9 out of 10 times the call goes to voice mail and they do not return calls. I wouldn't waste my time with this doctor--too much frustration and aggravation. Trust your health to someone who cares--Dr. Weinstein does not!

One Star

This doctor has a hard time refilling scripts. Sent in for 50 refills which medicare denied as too many then sent in a script to the wrong Safeway, as per the pharmacist Medicare part B needs to have it sent to the pharmacy that is going to make the refill. I informed him of his mistakes and what I got back was inform him 2 weeks in advance when I need a refill (50 refills Lol) then they should be able to transfer the script (wrong Safeway). Never did get it straightened out and had to pay out of pocket for what I needed. Do not trust him with your health care needs! Would give him negative readings if possible.

Waste of money

I decided to see an endo after a few years of hypothyroid treatment from primary care office. I made the wrong choice. $200 to be told to request old lab results myself (isn't this what your staff does?) and then he just rambled through the online questionnaire I took prior to visit. The exam took maybe 2 minutes and he talked the whole time about unrelated subject. Off to bloodwork which was posted online within couple of days. Didn't hear back after week so I sent a msg which he responded maybe w week later and said he didn't get all of my previous test results. Planning on doing anything about that doc? Apparently not. He then chatted a few times back and forth where he made suggestions that were in contradiction to info I provided him. I got the rest of the records to him a week later and have never heard back. That was well over 3 weeks ago. Wasted my money and have nothing to show for my visit other than frustration.

Dr. A J Weinstein

I had read some older reviews prior to scheduling an appointment with Dr. Weinstein and it was apparent that his old staff was not quite up to the task. I had my first appointment and was very pleased to find that Dr. Weinstein was extremely personable and friendly. Took the time explain things to me and had a fantastic attention to detail. I was pleased to find that I could review my test results online the day following the tests. I am very pleased with the choice that made in selecting Dr. Weinstein.

Great Dr. He gave me advice on treating my type 1 diabetes by making changes in my insulin delivery that made sense to me. He gave detailed explanation and made sure that I had a clear under standing of the changes and treatment plan . The staff along with Dr. Weinstein made me feel very welcomed. I have recommended him to several people .

hooray!

My cousin recommended Dr. Weinstein and I travelled quite a long distance to see him. It was SO WORTH IT! I had seen two other endocrine doctors for my Grave's disease and neither of them ever explained anything to me. They just gave me pills without any information and told me I needed surgery. Dr. Weinstein spent the time with me to go over my options including surgery and radioactive active and the pros and cons of both. In other words, he talked to me like a person. He actually sat me in his office before and after examining me to discuss everything in detail. Staff is wonderful and caring too. Highly recommend!

thank goodness!

Finally, Someone took the time to review my records, actually listen to what I had to say and make me feel like they knew how to handle my condition. After bouncing around a bunch of different specialists who spent 10 minutes with me, it was refreshing to feel like someone took the time to hear me and care about me.

Never reach anybody on phone and they don't return calls

I have run out of insulin and other supplies because when I call in a prescription I never get a hold of anybody. I do leave voice mail but they must never listen to their voicemail because my prescriptions don't get filled and they never call me back. Just to let you know when I ran out of insulin I called a month before I ran out and my blood sugar got very high, it was a very bad situation. As a diabetic we can't skip insulin even if we don't eat. I stopped going to him and just went to a family physician and this doctor has helped me more than Alan. I recently received a letter in the mail and it stated that Alan will no longer be at this location. I guess his bad practices has finally caught up with him.
