About

Bio

I am a general internist in Southfield, MI. I have a small, solo practice with one physician assistant and no partners. I offer a membership-based personalized healthcare option to my patients where they enjoy greater access to me, including 30-90 minute office visits, minimal wait times, and access to my cell phone so they can reach me any time of day or night. I guarantee availability to all of my patients within 24 hours, and I have even made a few house calls when necessary. I also serve as a medical "facilitator" in the sense that I can arrange for much more expedient visits with specialists, I have time to assist with forms and paperwork often required by employers, insurance companies, etc., and I will generally do everything I can to take care of all aspects of the health and well-being of my patients. My personalized model allows me about 5-10 times more time per patient, so I am NEVER rushed, and patients don't leave until all concerns have been addressed. For those who do not choose the personalized healthcare membership, my physician assistant, who works under my direct supervision, will be their primary health care provider. All of her notes, prescriptions, diagnostic studies and referrals are ultimately reviewed by me. But they don't have nearly the same level of access to me as my member patients. I am on the ambulatory staff at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI, which is only about a 5 minute drive from my office. I visit my member patients in the hospital and talk to their families throughout their stays. Also, I converse daily with the medical team and we work together to expedite the hospitalization and get my patients well and back home as quickly as possible. I strongly encourage my patients to be educated about their conditions and I emphasize wellness in my practice. I even lead a weekend walking group at the Somerset Collection on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 8:30 am. If you'd like to meet me, you are welcome to join any weekend!

This was very helpful. Thanks! Thanks Dr. Weissman! I've been making an effort to eat more, smaller meals throughout the day. A little slow-going at first, but I will keep at it.

This made me feel good. Thanks! It's not a lesion, just a discoloration-but thank you I have an appointment with an ENT and dentist. Thanks again.
