5 Patient Reviews for Dr. Weiss

"I am 32 years old. I went from Chicago to Milwaukee specifically to Dr. Weiss for planned minimal invasive surgery, mitral valve repair. Great result! The surgery went excellent, no issues! The side scar is very small and most likely will be almost invisible. Highly recommend! I felt that Dr. Weiss cared for me, scheduled the surgery the day when he could get together his best team. Other doctors can treat you like "another body". Thank you 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!"
