Wayne Weiss, M.D.
I first met Dr. Weiss laying on a table in pre-op waiting for him to perform an EGD on me prior to surgery. He came in and introduced himself and my first impression was how kind and yet professional he was. Over time my impression of him has grown even more. His office and hospital staff are knowledgable, helpful, and friendly. He has the highest of standards in care and yet is able to balance these standards with warmth and compassion towards his patients. Prior to surgery he addressed the surgical risks with me completely and fully prepared me for life after RNY. He took time in appointments to talk to me and answer my questions without making me feel rushed or confused. He showed interest for even my simplest questions and never made me feel ignorant for asking or like I was imposing on his time. He places a high emphasis on an aftercare program and his office offers lifetime structured support for patients. Overall I would say Dr. Weiss is the best! His surgical competence and bedside manner are fantastic and I am very proud to be his patient!

I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I had a few years when I was not overweight in my late teens and early twenties. However, to keep this figure I had to engage in very restrictive and unhealthy behavior. The moment I would eat normally, even to diet, I would gain the weight back and more. When I was 28 I was diagnosed with a metabolic disorder. For a short time medication helped and I started to lose weight. However, after a few years my body developed a tolerance to the medication and I started gaining weight again. I spent several more years dieting, to no avail. I finally decided to have gastric bypass surgery in order to lose the weight and improve my health and self esteem.
