Dr. Weisman came through for me while I was in the hospital. 6/23/2020 this was a follow up visit when I was informed of what is to happen next. He is very caring, compassionate and knowledgeable. It is a true blessing to have a doctor like him.

July 27, 2020 10:29 AM

Very good experience. I trust Dr. Weisman completely, as he repeatedly demonstrated how much he cares about me as his patient.

June 25, 2020 6:13 AM

I've been coming there for 13 years and I would recommend the hospital & Dr. Weisman to anyone. His concern, care, treatment and respect is top notch.

April 29, 2020 8:42 AM

Generally very positive. Nurse should exercise more caution concerning COVID-19, such as always wearing mask.

March 27, 2020 12:00 AM

Excellent care. He was very nice and listened to everything I asked.

March 27, 2020 12:00 AM

Very personable. Very much like this doctor, I would recommend him to other people.

March 20, 2020 12:00 AM

Wonderful.

March 18, 2020 12:32 PM

He was prompt, professional and solution-oriented.

March 16, 2020 9:59 PM

the visits were always very good,and alot of time was taken to explaiin each test,surgery and recovery.

March 16, 2020 9:59 PM

I had care and kindness shown to me with my doctors and their staff. everyone who cared for me during my hospital stay were excellent

March 14, 2020 12:05 PM

great

March 14, 2020 12:05 PM

wonderful fun

March 2, 2020 6:18 AM

I was treated well and with respect. My time with the doctor was really minimal through for both visits. The front staff has been very nice. The nurse - ok. X has been very helpful. The doctor was nice though and answered my questions - just minimal time with him.

February 21, 2020 5:12 AM

I go to NorthShore for everything except colonoscopy I only trust Dr. Weisman for colonoscopy.

February 4, 2020 7:19 AM

Dr. Weisman is a very skilled doctor. He operated on my daughter (for colon cancer).

February 3, 2020 1:43 PM

I have great faith in Dr. Weisman. He has taken care of me, during some of the most difficult times of my life.

February 3, 2020 1:43 PM

All of the people at the front desk and the person who took the information about the procedure (colonoscopy) I will be having and what the procedure will be immediately before the procedure, were wonderful. So kind and polite. The Medical Assistant who saw me in the examining room, prior to Dr. Weisman coming in, should not be working with patients, in my opinion. She did not smile, cut me off mid-sentence and generally was not a compassionate person. I felt like I was being treated like a 5 year older a very old, demented woman. I am not either of those things. While I am older, I run my own business, quite capably. I did not discuss this with Dr. Weisman, because I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she was just having a bad day, or maybe something is going on in her personal life. I just know, being a business person, that we try to be cheerful, no matter what is going on in our personal life. Patients of any age need that. I am telling you, so that if you hear any other complaints about this person, you will know, it wasn't just an "off " day for her. It's just her personality.

January 5, 2020 1:02 PM

I very happy with the treatment I am receiving with my provider and feel he is doing everything to get me back to good health.

January 1, 2020 2:51 PM

It has always been excellent in all aspects. always in a timely manner, respectful, and professional.

January 1, 2020 2:51 PM

All Staff in the office is great.

December 21, 2019 10:07 AM

Dr. Weisman is a great doctor. I've had him as a doctor for 30 years. He the "best".

December 16, 2019 1:54 PM

Exceptional doctor and staff. Spent a generous amount of time discussing health concerns, medical history, preventative measures, and answered all questions. Dr. Weisman was easy to talk to and he communicated in a very respectful and approachable manner. Interactions with all staff were professional and friendly.

December 16, 2019 1:54 PM

Very good experience considering this could have been an awkward or embarrassing visit. Dr Weisman took the time and made sure that I knew that he was hearing my concerns and answering them. It is refreshing to still find a doctor who takes the time to make sure that his patient is not only informed but also understands the information. He is kind, empathic, and extremely knowledgeable. This was my first visit and I would readily recommend him to family and friends. More doctors like him are needed to ensure the patient feels like the doctor really is a member of their health care team. It was great to feel like a person and not a name on an invoice. This translates into a feeling of great confidence in the doctor's investment in my healthcare goals and outcomes. Dr Weisman is a class-act who remembers that the focus should be on the patient.

November 23, 2019 12:04 PM
