Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my blog! My goal here is to get more personal – and simply share stuff with my friends, family, and patients!  You can expect some posts on the latest advances in cosmetic surgery (although it seems like there’ll be a fair amount of music-related posts – they’re too much fun to make!) I also expect that we’ll have more contests and free stuff, special events and even very special guests!


Dress Dr. Weiss and Win an Amazon Kindle Fire!

December 9, 2012

We’ve been having a bit of internal discourse as to what the best look is for Dr. Weiss. I mean, of course, we think he’s dashing no matter WHAT he’s wearing, but what’s the most popular combination? Is it the classic pink scrub he’s made popular? Or do patients prefer the standard white coat and dress shirt? So we decided to crowdsource the question – and we’re even giving out a prize! Use the form below to select your favorite look and if you’re the lucky random winner in the group that has the most votes, you’ll be heading home with a brand-new Amazon Kindle! * To receive prize, participants must be a patient having completed at least one consultation. Winner must be willing to come into office and be documented for promotional reasons including photography, film/videography and posting on video sharing sites such as YouTube. Contest ends February 15, 2013. I prefer Dr. Weiss in…Picture 1 – Pink and Perfect! Picture 2 – Back in Black!Picture 3 – Classic White Coat!Picture 4 – Brilliant in Blue!  Yes, I’d like to be on the mailing list to hear about future offers and contests!

National Read a Comic Book in Public Day!

August 30, 2012

Never let it be said that our office doesn’t know how to have a little fun! Being that Dr. Weiss is quite the comic book fan, we decided yesterday (8/29/12) to participate in National Read a Comic in Public Day! We thought you might like to see the results! 🙂

Dr. Weiss performs at concert to benefit students

March 21, 2012

If you’ve been a patient of Dr. Weiss’, you already know he’s an accomplished musician. So we’re extremely honored to be invited to perform at the “Doctors in the Desert” concert put on by the Steinway Society of Riverside County “Doctors in the Desert” is a fundraiser for piano lesson scholarships for deserving students. The concert will take place on March 25 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Scott McNealy (of Sun Microsystems fame!), and will feature (in addition to Dr. Weiss and others) guest artist Dr. Jungwon Jin from USC and Julliard School of Music. A big thank you to the Steinway Society of Riverside County for allowing us to give back to the community and have fun doing so!


Who needs sunscreen? YOU do!

March 4, 2012

Who should use sunscreen? Everyone should use sunscreen! Although people with darker skin tones have some built-in protection, it isn’t enough. Everyone needs to be protected from the harmful rays of the sun, everyday. How does sunscreen work? Most sun protection products work by absorbing, reflecting or scattering sunlight. They contain chemicals and minerals that interact with the skin to protect it from UV rays. Broad-spectrum sunscreens protect against both UVA and UVB rays. What is the difference between the rays? Sunlight has of two types of harmful rays– ultraviolet A (UVA) rays and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays. Overexposure to either can lead to skin cancer. In addition to causing skin cancer, here’s what each of these rays do: UVA rays – UVA rays can prematurely age your skin, causing wrinkles and age spots, and can pass through window glass. Tinted automobile windows do not protect you. UVB rays – UVB rays are the primary cause of sunburn. Unfortunately, there is no safe way to tan. Every time you tan, you damage your skin. As this damage builds, you speed up the aging of your skin and increase your risk for all types of skin damage So when should I […]

Winter Skin Care Tips!

February 1, 2012

Winter is coming to a close, but it’s never too late for some great winter skin tips, right? Even if you’re already pulling out the flip flops and the tankini, humor Mother Nature and give these tips a read (or just bookmark them for when Old Man Winter drops by again next year)! 1.  Cleanse twice daily (more is not better). 2.  Exfoliate 1-2 times weekly with a gentle exfoliator. Up to 3 times a week during the warmer months depending on skin type. 3.  The vitamins we take orally and get in our food are not enough to keep out exterior looking its best!  Applying topical vitamin serums help to stimulate collagen and elasticity and keep skin looking fresh. 4.  Hydrate! Drinking lots of water is great for our entire body including our skin, and using moisturizer helps to seal in that moisture and serums. 5. Protect! Use sunscreen daily. Make it a habit, just like brushing your teeth. The sun’s rays don’t seem as strong in the winter months so many of us feel it’s ok to go without protection during these months. Not true! Even though we are not as active outdoors in the winter, the rays […]

The Human Touch

January 23, 2012

A fascinating talk about the importance of the human touch and interaction in a world where medicine is increasingly focused on technology and data points.  Definitely worth a watch if you’re a physician or if you’ve ever seen one (yes, that’s everyone)!  Hopefully you’ll understand why to this day, Dr. Weiss demands seeing every single consultation himself.  Thanks to Deborah Leyva at the Healthcare and Technology blog for the link.
