Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

I have seen Dr. Weinstock for over 20 years. He is the best!!!! About 10 ago, unlike most doctors, he returned my frantic telephone call within 1 hour, listened to me describe my symptoms, asked me some questions, and said that he felt that there was a very good chance that I had a serious gall bladder problem. He directed me to [...] emergency room, where I was taken in quickly (thanks to his calling them and stating that I needed to be seem immediately). Not only did I need emergency gall bladder surgery, but I also had developed pancreatitis, which I later found out [...] could have been fatal, if not treated quickly as it was. [...] Dr. Weinstock has kept a watch on my colon, as my [...] had colon cancer. Lastly, he has kept my [...] from progressing. It has been totally controlled without any significant change for many years.

the website for medical information and chart is awful. never works and is a waste of time. also, primary care physician is too busy. always have to go to urgent care because he is booked months in advance. need to recommended another physician if he can not accommodate his patients.

The wait time to get in for an appointment is 2-3 months. While the issue is not an emergency, I wish I could have seen Dr. Weinstock sooner. When a new client came in as I was waiting, she was disappointed that she could get an appointment for 2 months. Dr. Weinstock is so good it was worth the wait. I'd rather wait a long time to see him than to get in sooner somewhere else.
