Five year cancer visit - excellent care and great confidence in doctor and staff

December 10, 2013

Dr. Weiss is very knowledgeable about my Cancer and keeps updated on the latest advances and treatments which I very much like. He uses medical terminology a lot which is a little hard to understand so that makes it a little bit hard to fully understand.

Very helpful for a second opinion. He gave me some good advice with dealing with my cancer. Would recommend him to someone else.

Top-notch care from Dr. Weis, Nicole, and Judy. They all sincerely care about my well-being. They respect my decisions, too, even when they may not agree with them.

I have gone to Dr. Weis for over five years for cancer treatments and he has always explained to me all my options and let me decide what I want to do. He always listens and answers my questions. He is a wonderful oncologist.

I like his willingness to describe what is happening and educate me on my condition, treatments, etc. At times, he gets distracted on unrelated topics and I have trouble getting my questions answered with clarity.

Only the best of care

April 28, 2012

Dr Weis is very personable and we trust his recommendations for follow-up care. At each visit he provides verbal and written info about my condition and takes time to answer questions.

April 26, 2012

Awesome staff!

April 21, 2012

The Dr. never asks "how are you feeling?" Friends who have come to appts with me have made this comment on several occasions, and now I make special note of whether he asks this question. The nurse always asks about pain level "on a scale of 1 to 10", but the Dr. has never addressed this with me.

April 14, 2012

Dr. Weis is obviously very skilled in his area of expertice. After the first couple of visitswith him I found him to be very friendly and fun to talk to while still getting his point and directions through to me.

March 29, 2012

I have always had a good experiance with the doctors and staff

March 20, 2012

I feel like a broken record. The courtesy and care given are top notch. Wonderful people, especially since they put up with....a "friend" of mine.

February 09, 2012

The care provider called my home in Chubbuck one day after the event to find out how I was doing and if I had any questions. Great service in my opinion.

January 19, 2012

I have nothing to complain, but to praise your wonderful work.

January 12, 2012

Dr. Weis' PA is terrific.
