4 Patient Reviews for Dr. Weiss

"Dr. Weiss performed an emergency operation on my aortic dissection at St. Lukes hospital. He literally saved my life! His quiet confidence and professionalism assured me and my wife we were in the right place with the right people. That means so much during those first scary days of hospitalization and helped me to recover more quickly. My recovery is progressing rapidly with little pain and no complications. Dr. Weiss and his team used the most advanced techniques to preserve and repair my heart. What could have been a tragedy turned into a celebration of life!"

-- Patrick Kerrigan, Aortic Valve, Valve Repair, 10/20/2015

"I'm so very pleased with the surgery I had with Dr. Weiss. The moment I met and talked with him, I knew he was the physician I would choose. I had seen another surgeon and was planning on "interviewing" three total. Instead of some other assistant answering my questions, Dr. Weiss gave me the time personally.

He came to see me three times in the hospital. He is very modern and up-to-date in the latest sense. I had though I wanted a surgeon with 30 years or "road work"... Not so.

His bedside manner was above what I could have hoped for. To book he accomplished an amazing minimally invasive incision. This is important to a woman.

I have already recommended Dr. Weiss to an acquaintance who needs the same surgery."
