Welcome to my blog!

Some of you have asked me “what’s with all the music, Dr. Weiss?” Well, I call every surgery patient on the evening of surgery just to make sure they are doing well. Occasionally, I would be at the piano and play a song that we had listened to that day. I gradually started to record songs and dedicate them to my patients. I started my blog as an experiment in sharing. Since music is a way to share our souls directly, it’s really the first social media. Isn’t that really the purpose of social media - to share who you really are, as completely and directly as possible? Anyway, enjoy!
