Ratings for Dr. Joel M. Weinberger
I was a patient of his for about 8 years, every time I got sick and had to see him he would tell me that I am making up being sick, I wasn't actually sick, and the only thing I needed to do was lose weight and I would not feel sick anymore. I would go to see him about a headache and he would tell me this!!! Also my mother was a patient of his too, and she slept and fell and she knew something was wrong, but this so-called doctor kept telling her she was making up the pain. Eventually she went to see another doctor, who recommended she see a neurologist, when she went to see a neurologist he told my mom she needs to have surgery ASAP. When she tried to contact Weinberger to get her medical records he refused to give her what she needed to have this surgery done. He completely ignored the ASAP on the fax that was sent to him. He is the worst doctor I have been to. I would never recommend him!!!!
I was new to the area and needed a family doctor for my annual checkup. I was very disappointed in the behavior of this doctor since he is listed in the Top Doctors for this area, I will have to say he is the worse doctor, he is very rude and seem angry, he did not address any of my medical issues per the forms I had to fill out that took me 30 minutes, all he was concerned about was a continuous rectal probe with resulted in a referral for a colonoscopy which I had told him I already had and was not due another one. I got the feeling he was upset I did not have anything wrong with me and just needed my annual exam which did not consist of any x rays or EKG. Please do not waste your time with this doctor, he is not worth it.
Dr. Weinberger is a great doctor! He has been my primary doctor for 20 years. If I am sick I can always get in to see him by the next day and if I call early, they will frequently work me in the same day. He is very knowledgeable and has helped me with many health issues over the years. He is very busy and seems to always be moving a mile a minute, but I always feel like he gives me his undivided attention when he is in the room. I think he is the best doctor in Kissimmee!
Quite possibly the most unhelpful doctor I have ever visited. He is rude and continually cut me off while I was speaking. His staff is unhelpful and could care less when you call on the phone. last time I was there, I was being seen because I had been fainting and falling down for no reason. He spent the entire visit lecturing me on my weight, and trying to talk me into buying weight loss "supplements" (diet pills) that cost $112 a bottle. He never once addressed the issue about me blacking out for no reason and made me feel like garbage. His entire staff is worse. Worst phone manners and horrible privacy practices. I've also seen several staff members give shots and draw blood while not wearing gloves. NEVER go here!
dr w. and dr dunn are both awsome dr and barbara is the best these people truly care about you and there nurses are all so kind and polite. first person you see is the front line and it needs MAJOR REPAIR !!!! PLEASE DONT LET THAT STOP U FROM GETTING GREAT CARE WITH GREAT DR"S
Dr Weinberger is pleasant and knowledgable. Also the nurse practitioner, Barbara Bias, is very helpful and knowledgable, but the office staff is very snotty, never smiles and talks to you as if you should have known their policies. When I first came in, the office staff is gathered together gossiping and laughing and looked at me like I was from anther planet. The office personnel is the front line to the business, they are just making it bad for Dr Weinberger.
Getting an appt is quick & easy. The Nurse Practitioners are very nice but not very knowledgable. The MA's have no clue and are very rude if they dont have an answer to your questions they will make it up instead of having someone that knows call you back with the accurate information regarding your health! I have never seen the actual Dr in that practice. The office staff always seems to have attitudes and they do not go out of their way to make you feel better. Definately NOT a for the patient practice. They give you no information or documentation to better yourself what ever your condition. Just write prescriptions and send you on your way. Seems like they just want to keep you coming back instead of helping you to get better. The front office staff can ruin the entire practice. I know other people that have left this practice for way worse reason's than I have. I gave them to many chances to get me back on track and I am worse than ever! I suggest going to specialist's
The diagnosis that should have happened did not and for over 8 months I was in severe pain. The Dr in the office kept telling me get used to it, it will get better. Then when the truth of the injury was brought to their attention - they would not accept the fact they misdiagnosised it for 8 months. Now I have severe nerve damage.
