I was very please to find a physician who is an expert in Sarcoma treatment and continues to do research in this disease.
I cannot say how much I appreciate Dr. Kurt Weiss. He is extremely thorough and even talked to my oncologist about receiving addition treatment. I believe him to be brilliant, and know him to be caring and a great personality. I am very satisfied with his service and very impressed with him.
An extremely efficient office. I was seen even before the actual time of my appointment , taken right back for xrays and saw the doctor within 5 minutes
just an awesome doctor. very straight forward love that about him!
Excellent providers-Dr. Weiss, resident Dr. Stephanie-thorough exam, answered all questions.
The Doctor was/is a positive force when dealing with my condition. I leave the office feeling better/happier than when I enter. Previously when my husband and I started to cry when we were advised that I would require another operation Dr.Weiss was so compassionate.
Dr. Weiss is like an angel to me, he ALWAYS puts my needs and concerns first. He makes me feel like I'm more then just a person with a chart so I have a lot of respect for this man. I've gone through quite a few doctors before finding Dr. Weiss and I couldn't imagine ever finding another like him!
Dr. Weiss is a wonderful doctor and caring person.
Dr. Weiss is an outstanding doctor I would recommend him to everyone. He always remembers me and asks me about how my school is going and is probably the most knowledgeable man I've met.
Dr. Weiss is very professional, friendly, and easy to talk with about health concerns. He makes solid decisions for my medical care and is very competent. I trust him with my care completely.
Weiss is the best, you are lucky he is with you.
Weiss is one of the best doctors I have ever met and you should have him train other doctors with bed side manners and patient handling
he is an excellent surgeon and I had complete trust in him to take care of my daughter's medical need!
love Dr Weiss and his staff.
Good experiences, only
Dr. Weiss provides excellent care and explains all options regarding care.
He is fantastic with my aon!
Dr. Weiss is always very positive and very precise and informative. Now that I think about it, I was not afraid to go in to surgery under his care. I may have to have the other leg pinned as well in the future. I would absolutely choose him to do the surgery. I trust him!!
overall a good appointment, was able to get all the answers to my questions and was down with the appointment within 45 minutes
Dr . Weiss is caring compassionate takes time to explain everything to me . I always feel I'm in the best care that I could possibly be in with Dr. Weiss.
This was my first visit to see Doc Weiss. I was extremely impressed with him, his care/concern, knowledge, etc. I rec'd a possible totally different diagnosis than what I had originally went to him for so was a bit on the shocked side and didn't really ask any questions, etc .... He asked us if we had any questions, etc but again, we were all just in "shock mode". All the staff I ran across were friendly, courteous, helpful, etc. I was very impressed by the entire facility and the people in it. I'm hoping to be able to continue doctoring with Doc Weiss as he seemed so down to earth, easy to talk to, had a sense of humor and explained things, showed me things on my MRI. I was very very impressed with him and am PRAYING my first visit is only the beginning of his awesomeness :-)
Dr. Weiss was very, very easy to talk to and very focused on my care and needs. He explained everything in detail and spent allot of time in conversation related to my care. I called the office one time with a question and it was not answered....that is my only issue. At the same time, my experience with Dr. Weiss was OUTSTANDING.
I love Dr. Weiss. He has treated my Ewings sarcoma and is very kind and caring.
Dr. Weiss was frustrated when he entered room. Did not have my paperwork. Computer was slow.Did not introduce me to resident with him. Seemed rushed. Was not aware an x-ray was done in office 15 min before my visit. Had to ask him about it.
Dr. Weiss is a caring provider that often takes time to listen to my concerns and to treat any concerns that I bring to him. He demonstrates the knowledge and compassion needed to make patients that struggle with ongoing issues feel cared for and heard. I appreciate the opportunity to be seen by Dr. Weiss.
I trust .Dr.Weiss with my life
Dr. Weiss and I communicate very well. When the visit is over, I fully understand how my condition is going and what treatments might be needed in the future.
Dr. Kurt Weiss is a fantastic Doctor and person. UPMC is very lucky to have him.
Dr.Weiss a wonderful Doctor
Dr. Weiss is great!
excellent doctor, have total confidence in him.
Always get great care and treated like royalty!
Dr. Weiss is professional and provides the utmost thorough care.
We absolutely love Dr. Weiss! He is caring and has very clearly explained everything that my daughter has had to face and go through with her surgery. He is incredibly knowledgeable on the subject and answers all questions we have had with the greatest of care, without making us feel stupid for asking!
I have the deepest respect for Dr. Weiss. I always feel he has my feelings up front and foremost.
Absolutely Love Dr. Weiss's office. Dr Weiss is amazing, has great bedside manner, is enthusiastic, and explains everything very well. The staff is always friendly, and positive. By far the best Dr's office I have attended. Another thing I would like to comment on, is that they are always on time with Dr. Weiss. I have never waited more than 15 minutes past my appointment time. An never waited more than 5 minutes for the nurse to come and take vitals, and then Dr. Weiss to see me shortly after. Most visits I am in and out within 30-40 minutes from check in to check out! They are extremely efficient, yet thorough!
Could not have had a better experience with Dr. Weiss. He took the time to listen to the questions that we had for him, he thought about them and answered them in terms that were easy to understand. He and his staff are a class act and set the standard to how medical offices should be run.
Dr Weiss is an incredibly talented, intelligent, specialist who has rebuilt my son's numerous bone. After 2 failed surgeries elsewhere, we feel very lucky to have found this doctor. So far there's been no recurrence of the cyst that took over my son's bone.
Amazing overall experience with Dr. Weiss, has cared for me and made my quality of life so much better than imagined.
Dr. Weiss is very nice.
I wish you had more doctors like Kurt Weiss!
Everyone was very helpful and friendly and showed concern for my well being.
Best all around
I trust Dr.Weiss he is a great doctor
Dr Wiess is a very good doctor and I am happy to have him on my side through this medical experience.
I have autism and he treats me amazingly.
wonderful experience with this doctor and feel confident with his recommendations for me!
I'm so HAPPY that I was referred to Dr Kurt Weiss. I've been doctoring locally (Johnstown area) with a bad leg problem. I was ready to just give up and look for a better Doctor myself when the local Dr here finally referred me to Dr Weiss. I've spent over 5 months and countless appointments being diagnosed with 3 different problems that I don't even have. I had one visit to Dr Weiss and within 5 minutes of meeting me he knew exactly what is wrong with me. I'm totally confident that Dr Weiss will do whatever he needs to do to return me to work as soon as he can. I can tell he is much more knowledgeable than my previous Doctors. I'm a long haul tractor trailer driver currently unemployed (because of my leg) and I feel much better already having a much better Doctor treating me. And the guy and girl at the desk and also the girls I've met back by the exam rooms YOU ARE ALL AWESOME! Some people here in my area really need to come let you show them how people should be treated. Thank You!
This was my first visit, and Dr. Weiss seemed to be very caring. He sent me for an MRI and I haven't received the results yet. I expect to hear something soon.
A wonderful doctor and man.
I wish the health care system would promote more drs like DR Weiss- the question about 15 mts as if health care should be timed with a clock is insulting! Im happy he takes time to explain everything! He is a fantastic doctor dedicated and passionate for his work!
Dr. Weiss is an excellent surgeon and care of provider. I am happy to have him as my Dr.
