Dr. Andrew B Weinberger has the following 2 specialties
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I want to make it very clear that we never got to see this doctor. In December, the next available appointment was in February. I made it very clear that my husband desperately needed to see the doctor because he was an amputee and needed his hand for transferring. He had experienced a gout attack and one of his hands was virtually useless; we had already visited emergency. I found the office staff (Marisol and Kelly) to be absolutely heartless. Kelly indicated most of our patients are in pain and also require special transport, so basically you just need to wait for the next cancellation. The office does not make any exceptions, but calls all the patients in order when an opening occurs. Heartless is not the word. In another office, the receptionist was so sweet, and indicated that she would do her best to fit us in, and she did. Dr. Weinberger, if you read this review, you need to train your staff in empathy. They were so cold-hearted.
I started seeing Dr Weinberger in 2001 when I moved here from California. There is really no waiting time in the office. He runs an on-time schedule and expects his patients to do the same. He is a caring, highly knowledgeable Rheumatologist. Over time I have met several other doctors who said that they respected and liked him and that they learned Rheumatology from him in medical school. He has managed to keep my 5 types of Arthritis at bay and for the most part relatively stable. He is through, takes his time, answers questions, and he listens.
After seeing another rh dr who drew an immediate diagnosis for my husband based on very little criteria and less exam time we went to see Dr. Weinberger...he had a long wait period for an appointment but when I told his assistant that my husband was suffering he opened up an appt the next day. He took a great amount of time in the exam and was very thorough. followed up with our primary dr, called consistently to determine progress, answered our calls and pursued to find the right answer to the problem for the right reasons...he is wonderful and a great example of why a person should go into medicine...
