I came to Dr. Barry Weinstock complaining of unusual tiredness and general fatigue, along with pain in my shoulders and back. After undergoing a few tests, including a nuclear stress test, Dr. Weinstock correctly diagnosed my problem and immediately scheduled me for heart stent surgery. During the procedure, Dr. Weinstock discovered that I had 100% blockage in my left descending artery (a/k/a “the widow maker”). Instead of sending me directly to open heart surgery, which most cardiologists would do with 100% blockage, Dr. Weinstock instead spent the extra time and miraculously found a way to insert 2 stents in my artery. Dr. Weinstock literally saved my life in two ways: first by opening my blocked artery; and second, by performing the stent procedure himself rather than sending me to open heart surgery, which would have required a lengthy recovery time and kept me out of work for several months. As a self-employed businessman, this would have been financially disastrous for me and my family. Since the procedure, I have enjoyed a full and healthy life and feel great, with no residual problems. Dr. Weinstock is absolutely the best doctor that I have ever had. I would enthusiastically recommend Dr. Weinstock to anyone who needs a cardiologist. He not only is a brilliant surgeon, but a thoughtful and considerate man with a wonderful bedside manner. He is fantastic!
