Ratings for Dr. Efim Weinman
I have never been seen at my scheduled time.I usuallywait about 1/2 hour to be seen.Dr Weinmann is ready to retire.Doesnt want to handle anything out of the ordinary.His bedside manner is caustic at best.The meds he prescribed are right on,but the dread I have on seeing him isn't worth it
Doctor Weinman is the first psychiatrist I've gone to who has actually helped me instead of pushing an agenda. We discussed previous medications I've been on and he didn't dismiss my concerns about the side effects I'd experienced, and he was able to get me on a combination and dosage that really works for me. He knows a lot about what he's prescribing and how my other conditions affect my mental health.
Very knowledgeable. He is the only physician who has every been able to find a drug combination that has allowed me to have a happy and stable life. He has even been able to taper down the amount and dosage of medications safely and increased them during times of crisis with little to no problems. He has been a godsend to me and my family. Although he does not communicate well with hospitals, although I've only been hospitalized once while with him, he does communicate very well with me, my family and my insurance company all within the same day when needed. I can alway count on either getting a call, a prescription and/or an appointment very quickly. I highly recommend him to anyone.
He is kind, caring, and generally interested in your well being. He has worked with me on finding the right medications. I have seen a vast improvement in my condition because of him. I highly recommend him! He is always available and returns call the same day.
Dr. Weinman is a kind person, however I always felt rushed while there. My concerns were dismissed when I was taking a new medication that caused me to have horrible hives, enough to where the hospital had to give me epi-pen injections. He did not respond the the ER dr. when called. He is knowledgeable about meds, and I did feel better on my drug combo, but I felt that I couldn't openly talk to him, he always had me fill out a worksheet in there on how I was feeling, and we compared them to last time, was helpful to see progress, but I felt stifled. I eventually stopped seeing him due to this.
