Dr. Weiss Uses Technology for Quick Diagnosis and Scheduling
“ I came to Coordinated Health and requested Dr. Weiss. He saw me the next day and diagnosed his problem right in front of me. He was able to show me right where the problem areas in my knee were, via a wireless laptop that had my MRI loaded into it. He scheduled me for a scope the same week. My operation went very well; I was back to work within a week and able to enjoy all the holiday activities. The total experience with Coordinated Health from the office staff, therapists, PA’s and Dr. Weiss was always professional and in a friendly manner. I have nothing but positive things to say and I would confidently recommend Coordinated Health to all my family, friends and coworkers. ”
Dr. Weiss Did a Wonderful Job with My Knee Replacement Surgery
“ Hi,I've been a patient with Dr.Weiss for at least 15 years and just love him. I now have had two knee replacements and he has been just wonderful. He explained everything before the knee replacement and told me what to expect afterwards. I would highly recommend him and feel he is the greatest. Greenwood Ave. Therapy Center is the best. ”

I called and literally begged to find someone I could see. I was set up with Dr. Burkey on December 1 and even though it was the first injection of this type he did Awesome!! Thank you Dr. Burkey and to Nell that got this set up for me!! ”

Hip Replacement/Hospital facility and staff
“ I recently (December 2, 2014) had hip replacement surgery, performed by Dr Carl Weiss, at the Coordinated Health Hospital in Bethlehem. There are not enough superlatives to describe the facility and the entire staff at that hospital/surgical center. They all could not have been more helpful and caring - and of course Dr. Weiss did a great job on my new hip! I'm making arrangements with Dr. Weiss to fix my shoulder so I can get back to casting a fly rod! God Bless You All for the wonderful jobs you do and for caring about your patients! ”

My visit was literally life changing.
“ On June 20, 2013 myself and my father were in a motorcycle accident on my way to football summer training. After being rushed by ambulance to Pocono Medical Center it was determined I had snapped my humerus clean in half. It was set that day and put in a sling. After many weeks visiting the Orthopedic Surgeons appointed me by the hospital, my arm was no better and in fact worse. I was basically left in a crippled state, and my sports days looked very bleak. I am a three sport athlete, and it was a devastating blow. Kati Holmes is the Athletic Trainer at Pius X High School where i was attending and spoke with my parents almost on a daily basis. Kati suggested we get a second opinion as we had photos of the x-rays of the original break, and what I was left with and she was very concerned. My mom called Coordinated Health and it was going to be a while before I could get in for a consultation. Kati brought the pictures in to the office and out of concern by the entire staff at the Wind Gap CH, I was scheduled for the end of that same week. My arm had already set and was very crooked and I had very little use of my arm. We were scheduled to see Dr. Weiss the Ortho Dr in the Wing Gap office. Dr Weiss was honest in saying he would not touch my arm and actually got me in to see Dr. Brogel the Orthopedic Trauma Surgeon at St Lukes. We were so grateful for Dr Weiss being honest in saying we really needed the top guy in the field. One week later I had surgery. With 8 screws and a plate I could wiggle my fingers, and started to feel pretty great. 3 weeks after surgery I played in my first basketball game. Dr Brogel thought long and hard before releasing me but thought the extension would release my scar tissue, you see my arm was frozen initially at 33 degrees. Now I want you to know that Kati was right there with me all the time, icing, rubbing it out and moral support. This past fall I was a Wide Receiver on Pius X football varsity team. I had an amazing season, played every game, and yes Kati was still right there beside me. Did I mention we won the District 11 Championship? So Coordinated Health its Doctors and the best Athletic Trainer in the business gave a 14 year old his life back. Without them I would be a bench warmer, I havent seen much of the bench thanks to them. Kati was a huge support system for my mom. My mom would have a question about something going on with my arm, and Kati was right there with the answer. If she didn't know it she would find out and get right back to her. So you see I went from hopeless to hopeful to living the life I love. Football Field, Basketball Court and Baseball Field. Thank you Coordinated Health, Dr Weiss, and Kati Holmes. You Rocked My World. ”

The Go To Guy
“ Their aren't enough good things that can be said about a Doctor that says " I Can Fix That" and then does. As far back as the 1980's Dr Weiss has been fixing various damaged parts of my body with great success. Beginning with several Orthoscopic procedures that enabled me to continue my active life style for several years until the need for a replacement was obvious. The knee replacement had absolutely no complications since 1990 due to his expertise. Dr Weiss also did carpal tunnel surgery which cured my painful symptoms. When his name is mentioned in any hospital in which he has worked he has been praised as an extremely competent and an excellent surgeon. ”
