I had an appt with Dr. Weinrieb to have an EGD done. I waited over 3 HOURS to have my procedure done, and finally left the hospital when a very honest Nurse told me that I still had one more procedure in front of me, that it was going to be at LEAST another hour, and that this is just another normal day for him. He has no consideration for his patients or even attempting to stay on schedule. The Nurse there actually gave me names of other more efficient GI doctors I also waited over an hour just to meet with him for an appt. I almost left then, toi, and I wish I would have. I will never revisit nor reschedule with this Doctor.

A two hour and fifteen minute wait to see this Doctor with an appointment. Pompous, know it all who doesn't physically examine you! He looks over your paperwork, asks some rudimentary questions, makes pronouncements as you try to tell him he isn't hearing you. When told of my symptoms he said "that's impossible, nothing like that ever happens to anyone". He talks of his past patients, how long he's practiced and brags about his mental superiority. He takes phone calls during your visit with him and talks about patients with their names used! This was my worst physician visit ever. Never again.

Doctor is "too busy" to care about his patients. I called because I was having a flare-up and wanted something to help with the pain. Doctor wasn't in that day and I was told he'll call me tomorrow. I waited until 3:30 the next day before calling again. The office staff said he's busy he'll call you this afternoon. Finally received a call, but not from the doctor, was told to go get bloodwork done and a CT. Went Wednesday morning for both tests. Waited until 4pm Thursday, and once again called because I did not hear back about my results. Once again the same dismissive woman answered and claimed they did not have results from the day before. I was told the Dr. would call me after he reviews them that night. It is now the following week and the Dr still has not called. I am now changing Doctors due to being ignored by this Dr and his staff. Very unprofessional.Also, they did not try and get me an earlier appointment. I cannot get in for another month.
