Did not seem outgoing-more judgmental. I'm more used to a more personable Dr. Is very knowledgeable and agreeable to some changes. Very difficult to observe some personality with masks!

Check out receptionist said AARP had incorrect DOB and I needed to call them. My first thought: absurd. Felt she should offer to try and resolve issue while I was there since it most probably originated in your office.

The medical' treatment and knowledge is very good. However, I attribute my good health at my age to not taking any drugs, cigarettes or alcohol plus a good, healthy diet with adequate nutritional supplements. When I had high cholesterol, I was immediately encouraged to go on a Staton drug. Any drugs or toxins are going to be filtered by the liver, which potentially compromises the health of the liver. I was able to decrease my cholesterol by 20% by simply changing my diet. I find it very frustrating that the treatment of symptoms take precedence over treating the cause of a condition. I would very much like more acceptance of alternative medicine solutions.

When I called in November/December expecting to schedule an appointment for January, June was the soonest the office had available. This long of a lead time has not been the case in the past. I arrived for my appointment about 10 minutes early, and was shown back to the examining room on time. My provider poked his head in to say that he would be another couple of minutes. This was an unusually long wait time. The testing that was ordered will be at a hospital less convenient to me.

I know whenever I call Dr. Weingarten that he follows through. He is referring other drs. if my concerns need to be addressed by a special/specialist. I have faith in following all instructions to the fullest. And if he feels it is urgent he gets me in for a test as soon as possible.

Check in was very deceptive. I was asked to sign electronic panel without ever seeing what I'm signing. The receptionist told me it was so the doctors office could bill my insurance. I asked for a copy of the form and found it was so much more that I was being asked to sign off on. This is a terrible practice by legacy to bamboozle patients to sign off on something that is not at all explained what it is. Truly a violation of patient rights.

Front office staff was extremely professional, med tech was friendly and facilitative getting me prepped (and handling my initial phone call for urgent care), and Dr Weingarten is especially cordial and professional. I feel very cared for by the entire team.

Dr Weingarten saw me to follow up on a 7 day hospitalization the prior week. The issue was an infection in my foot after surgery. His medical assistant called after my hospital discharge to say hi and remind me to follow up with them. Dr Weingarten was concerned about my healing also, and personally called a podiatrist to get me a prompt appointment. Dr Weingarten is a really fine physician because: 1.he's unusually thorough, observant and intelligent . 2. He keeps up on medical literature and doesn't automatically accept findings - trust drug . He Is skeptical 3. He doesn't go along with my theories or drug requests I make. He also explains why also. Bottom line: I trust him and his judgment. I knew he'd thorough when I went to see him and.he was.

The provider was responsive to my questions and proactive in my needs. I am concerned about the practice of following CDC guidelines. The CDC is a bureaucracy. They are used to taking their time in making decisions, but as you know, the pandemic we are currently experiencing has required state of the art knowledge in real time because the nature of Covid-Sars 2 is becoming known bit by bit as new studies are written. I was told by someone at Legacy the practice is to wait until hospitalization is required before anything other than aspirin is required and then that would be done by the hospital staff. There are many treatment options that require early intervention in order to be effective. For this reason, I believe many physicians advocate early treatment with therapeutics, but this does not appear to be the practice at Legacy. This is a concern of mine, but I did not discuss it specifically with my provider.

Examination was cursory and information provided on my condition was inadequate. I was prescribed an antibiotic but was not given Information on the effectiveness of the treatment or what actions I should take if the treatment was ineffective. In fact, it was not effective. Also, when I provided the doctor with other pertinent information about my health, the provider seemed uninterested and did not question me further. This indifference has been typical of this provider: after several years of having him as my primary care physician there is no sense of connection or caring by this man.

Dr Weingarten is not personable. Attitude of my recent history and treatment paths were obviously outside of his "inside the box" thinking. He had not reviewed my extensive medical issues since I had seen him last. He documented that I refused weight and temp scan. I asked to do the temp scan somewhere else than my forehead. I was told Legacy only has scanners for the forehead, so I agreed to the forehead scan. I weigh myself every morning at the same time and in pajamas. My phone captures that weigh and documents it. Being in winter clothes and devices in my pockets, I told them about my routine and gave them my mornings weight. The MA was not happy and Dr will insist. Dr documented my weight and stated I refused weight. Obvious no out of the box thinking. Being involved with the Providence system extensively over the last month, I only had to have my Medicare and supplement cards scanned once. In legacy it is every time, even in the same day. Very irritating.

Over the years of his care, Dr Weingarten has developed a valuable understanding of my health and me as an Individual. I hope to continue his care in the future (he musn't retire).
