Dr. Lawrence Weinstein is a board-certified clinical cardiologist who considers himself a primary care physician for the heart. “My focus is on the everyday issues patients face: hypertension, coronary artery disease, heart failure, prevention of heart disease and arrhythmias,” he explains. “The key is spending the time to listen to my patients. About 85% of all diagnoses can be made just by listening, a skill I learned from my father who was Chief of Cardiology at Jamaica Hospital in New York.”
Following in his footsteps, Weinstein went to the six-year medical program at City College, which trained physicians to work in medically underserved areas. He delivered care in the South Bronx, Ecuador, and even Siberia.
“As the Chief of Cardiology at Bethesda Hospital, my focus was optimizing the care our physicians delivered to the community; a goal recognized by Healthgrades when Bethesda was recognized as one of the top 100 hospitals for Cardiac Care. Now in private practice in Boynton Beach, I am back to my roots, delivering on my belief that healthcare should be accessible and available to all. My accommodating staff has been with me for 10 plus years. We offer patients the benefit of concierge care without the fees, and feature on-site diagnostic testing. We try to make the entire patient experience as seamless and painless as possible, taking the time for every patient to truly understand their issues and fulfilling the promise to find solutions for a healthy heart and life,” Weinstein says.
