Provider Bio

Dr. Weitz has always been attracted to medicine. Serving as a medic in Israel starting at the age of 13, Dr. Weitz's love of medicine has never wavered.

"I just really love what I do," said Dr. Weitz. "As a physician, you make a difference and you live your life in a way that contributes to the community. To me, that is very satisfying."

With his experience providing emergency medicine and pediatric medicine, Dr. Weitz appreciates that he can bring his cross-training together in the Emergency Department at Mile Bluff.

"I really enjoy seeing that I get immediate results when I help patients," said Dr. Weitz. "In the emergency department, you have seconds to see what is going on with a patient and make a decision about what to do."

While quick decisions are necessary in the emergency department, Dr. Weitz does take time to listen to patients and their family members. "In patient care, I think the most important thing is listening," explained Dr. Weitz. "When you read Harrison's Textbook of Medicine, it tells us that 80 percent of the diagnosis the patient will tell you if you listen, 15 percent will come for the physical exam, and the remaining 5 percent is the tests we perform. If the patient is going to tell me what is going on with them, the best place is to start by listening to them."

In his spare time, Dr. Weitz likes to travel and see different cultures. As a pilot, he also enjoys flying experimental aircrafts. He has also taken an interest in learning how to cook vegan and vegetarian recipes.
