Specialties

Dr. John R Weinstein has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Ridiculous Waste of Time

Horrible Absolutely Horrible my experience with this Psychiatrist, If I can rate this as a 0 I would and here are my reasons below: 1. With all due respect, His secretary is honestly an airhead. As soon as we get there to the place for our 1st appt. I get a call saying that the doctor can't see you today. What happened to 24 hour advance notification? Yet, if we do this my credit card gets the heat. I'm upset and I go to the office and have a discussion with his secretary, and all she does is laugh like this is some kind of joke and makes a new appointment. Real professional not even an apology.. 2. After coming for the new appt. we had to wait 1 hour 30 mins. just to be told that "we don't take new patients" "I don't know what you're doing here" "who are you" in the rudest on manner. Me trying to be nice and professional I kept my anger low, and did my best to establish some dialogue to figure out what's happening. The Dr. W didn't seem to care what we had said he then took off arguing with his secretary and putting the blame on her. 3. I missed two days of work, wasted my time, was treated rudely and disrespectfully from both the Dr. W and his asian secretary, my kids missed school twice, wasted on gas $$, and they think we're playing around or this is a joke.. My kid needs some serious help and it's not like I'm getting any of these services free I'm paying for them. I do not recommend this place to anyone else. I'm positively sure there are better suited doctors than this jerk, so please don't waste your money or time. If you have any questions you are more than welcome to email.

Discrimination and unprofessional Doctor.

Dr John R. Weinstein is a very unprofessional and arrogant doctor. He has no respect and discriminate patient base on their insurance coverage. He doesn't care how much time the patient spent on waiting. Minimum waiting time is one hour and 30 mins, even though patient is already scheduled and arrive 15 mins prior to the scheduled time. Every visit in his clinic, we usually spent two to four hours, before my patient is seen. In this recent visit, my patient was the next in line, but he called the patient behind us who has arrived in just 30 mins. I called his attention that we've been there prior to this patient, but he just responded in a rude manner, "I will not argue with you". Seems that he has favoritism and discriminate his own patients.

Dr. John weinstain, was not able to help my 6 year old son. Said my son was to loud in he's office and clients were complaining which that was a lie. Also mention he was bothered during he's vacations regarding my son. Dr. Weinstein clearly told me couldn't work with patients like my son . I left his office crying.

Worst MD Experience Ever

If you want to spend all of your time in the waiting room, by all means, go see this man. 2 plus hours behind, and they scheduled me on a day when he sees his "patients from the group home". Boy, was that a treat. Screaming, adult diapers, helmets, swearing...it was like "One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest". When I FINALLY saw him, he had a sporting event on his radio the ENTIRE TIME! Wow, thanks for listening! In the end, he did absolutely nothing to help me, and basically pawned me back off on a previous physician. A huge waste of time, and a downright creepy experience. STAY FAR AWAY!
