THE WORST!!!

I wish I could give negative stars. This is the WORST patient care I have EVER received in my entire life. Dr. Weintraub should not be allowed to practice medicine. I went to see him for possible kidney stones. Every office visit felt rushed and he acts like he has a God complex. He took very little time to ask me questions or explain things to me. Turned out I had two kidney stones and I had surgery to remove them. He showed up 1.5 hours late to the surgery center and never explained or apologized for his tardiness. At that point there were no anesthesiologists available because they were in other surgeries that were scheduled after mine. After another 45 minutes I finally got wheeled into the procedure room. He never came to see me before I was put under and never came to see how I was doing after. He never left a prescription for pain medication either. I woke up uncomfortable and in pain and because he never took any time to talk to me I wasn't expecting that. I cried the entire night and wasn't able to sleep. The next day when I called his office to ask for pain medication they said that someone had to come pick it up since it was a narcotic prescription. No problem. My sweet husband had to leave work to go get it and when he arrived at the office, there was no prescription!!!!! It's bad enough that the doctor himself has no bedside manner and no compassion, but his staff need to be chased after as well. DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!

Dr. Weintraub: Medical Un-professional (worst doctor ever)

After my experience with Dr. Weintraub, I was left thinking: Oh I get it, this man must have entered the medical profession ironically. This is the only way that his existence as a doctor made sense to me. Dr. Weintraub does not care at all about the well-being of his patients. He is notoriously late to appointments and, yes, even to surgeries. I was admitted into a nearby hospital for kidney stone removal, and he was assigned as the doctor who would perform the surgical procedure. My surgery was scheduled for 11: 30 a.m., but did not get underway until a little after 10 p.m. Among the reasons given for the delay: Dr. Weintraub was stuck in traffic. When he finally did perform the shockwave lithotripsy, the kidney stone, unfortunately, did not break into pieces as it should have. He scheduled a follow-up appointment the next week. When I arrived at his office, I waited over 45 minutes. WIth the experience of having to wait for Dr. Weintraub an entire day without food or water still fresh in my memory, I went to the front desk to inquire about his whereabouts. I was told that, oops, he had forgotten about me. He returned to tell me that he would have to perform the procedure a second time, but only if my health insurance plan was one that his practice would accept. Fair enough. After having his office staff double-check their coverage policies later that day, he called me and let me know that, in fact, he could not perform the procedure a second time, and that I would have to go elsewhere. Except: the tube that he had inserted into my ureter as part of the procedure was still in my ureter. He said the removal was no longer his problem, and that was that. He, in fact, did not even care to fully complete the procedure he started. Apparently, in Dr. Weintraub's moral universe, it is acceptable practice to leave a tube inside someone's body, a tube that he, himself, inserted. When I did have the tube removed, I found that it was a simple, 3-second procedure. Dr. Weintraub is clearly not someone who entered the medical profession to save lives, or even to do the bare minimum to ensure the well-being of others. If you have any choice in the matter, avoid Dr. Weintraub at all costs

Horrible

I was told Dr. Weintraub is a good doctor. I have Lupus and it has caused severe problems in my kidneys. I saw him on 2 occasions and thought he was knowledgeable. I felt comfortable with him as my doctor. However, recently I developed the most severe UTI infection I have ever had. I have kidney stones and will always develop them so the pain associated with infection was bad based on the amount of blood in my urine. I also had a fever and was in extreme. pain. My primary care doctor was so concerned, he wanted me admitted to the hospital. I was relieved because I thought Dr. Weintraub was going to solve my current problem.He did the exact opposite. He only looked at the tests I had done after several days in the hospital being treated with antibiotics. Of course they had improved because of the amount of antibiotics I had been given. He also said he didn't believe there was anything wrong with my kidney. I am now about of the hospital and my fever is over 100. I also started peeing blood again. The last word I heard from Dr. Weintraub was that I was 100% and to enjoy my hospital stay. Thankfully there was another on the floor who completely disagreed. That doctor is the one who should have been my treating doctor for my entire visit.
