Specialties

Dr. Michael L Weinberger has the following 4 specialties

  • Hospice & Palliative Medicine
  • 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.

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Good doctor, poorly run office

Even if I book the first appointment in the morning I usually end up sitting in the the waiting room for 2 hours and no one ever apologizes or explains the delay. Staff is terrible about returning calls. However I like Dr Weinberger and feel he genuinely cares about tearing patients's oain even if he apparently has no respect for their time.

Horrible Post-op care

Agree with everything first patient posted. Consultation was great and very thorough. Dr. responded to emails about my questions before the shot. During the day of the epidural, only saw the Dr. while I was waiting on my stomach. Treatment room did not look very sterile. Shot lasted 5-7 days. Sent two emails to Dr. after shot regarding protocol for follow up visit today regarding weight loss from shot and pain returning. No response at all from Dr. even though my email said I almost fainted from the pain. Was highly looking forward to my follow up visit today. Came to my office on Saturday and there was a message from the Dr's office at 5:30 cancelling my appointment saying Dr. Weinberger would not be in Monday. Can you believe it? Won't respond to my emails and then cancels my appointment!! lol. I also agree with the scrubs comment. I'm done with this guy. Also, why is clinic in an office bldg. with no A/C?

Frustrated Patient

Absolutely ill managed office ! Have to make appointments and all other communications through a a second party which is not on premises, impossible to contact this physicians even when he requests that you do ! No continuity in care, had five visits and accomplished nothing. All documents provided ( records from past procedures ) not returned due to them not being in my chart. The ancillary staff ( medical assistants ) dress in scrubs and present themselves as if their knowledge base is far more that what it really is, severely over over estimating themselves.
