Dr. Eva Weinlander is a very fine and compassionate physician. I have complete confidence in her and her recommendations for my health care. Not only that, she remembers me and my medical history without constant reference to my file. I am very pleased to have her as my primary care physician.
Excellent provider.
Dr. Weinlander is kind, approachable, thoughtful, and caring. During this visit, I had an unusual problem for me -- I had broken my foot. She was through in her examination, spot on with what she thought was wrong, careful to take note that I had hurt both feet, and that while one was most likely broken, she also paid attention to make sure there was no permanent damage to the other. Also, after confirming that the right foot was broken, because she was not satisfied with how long it was going to take for the Orthopedic side of Stanford to fit me in, she called me at home and had her assistant personally place calls to try to speed things up. I'd say she went the extra mile, and I felt very cared for. Dr. Weinlander is a good listener.
I have been seeing Dr. Weinlander for 15+ years and she has always been so thorough, funny, and caring. She is the BEST physician.

She asked me where my hip pain was & when I showed her "the side of my thigh" she showed me an exercise for the lateral facial muscle. That has helped.

Excellent! Dr. Weinlander is superb-great primary & preventative care.
I love Dr. Weinlander. She is a caring physician, but always rushed and always stressed. It took months to get an appointment (over 6 months). I arrived ten minutes late, which resulted in my entire appointment being cut so short, that I have to schedule a follow up, because we didn't go over all my blood work.
I really like my doctor, Dr. Weinlander. She is extremely compassionate to my every need. All doctors should be like her.
I didn't feel as rushed as last year, so I am glad about that.

excellent doctor
I think I have the best doctor (Dr. Weinlander) in your clinic I've had her now for some time and wouldn't consider having anyone else.
Dr. Weinlander is excellent. I am very fortunate to have her as my primary physician.
Recently I brought a medical concern/problem to Dr. Weinlander and, as always, she listened until I was finished describing my questions. Then she made thoughtful suggestions to address the problem and outlined a follow-up plan. I trust her judgment & knowledge implicitly - and her warm, down-to-earth personality and approach to patients is terrific!
Have already done this many times.( Send friends to this clinic)
Dr. Weinlander's knowledge and her thorough attention to medical matters are superb. Her bedside manner is outstanding.
I appreciate the amount of time Dr. Weinlander spent with me and I didn't feel rushed at all.
exceptional
Dr. Weinlander is one of the best physicians I have ever had. She is knowledgeable, thorough, kind, funny and caring. I have already recommended her to several people.
Dr. Weinlander is an exceptional physician. She is always 'present' during the visit, pays close attention to what I say, and answers my questions directly. If she doesn't have the answer at hand, she follows up to be sure I get the information I need. She doesn't 'dawdle' but she never leaves the exam room with my having any unanswered concerns.
I haven't seen this doctor before but I thought she was very, very good. She spent time with me and even researched immunizations I needed for an upcoming trip. Really thorough and seemed to care.
Eva Weinlander is an excellent doctor. Clearly knowledgeable, but equally important, she is focused on her patient's overall wellness.
Dr. Weinlander is great.
I would love more time with my fabulous physician
Provider shows compassion
Eva is a blessing - could not be any better.
My primary has been my primary dr. for at least 15 years. She has provided me with excellent care - at times going "above and beyond."
Dr Weinlander is the best. I particularly like her focus on the problem. I'm a little ADD for an old guy and tend to ramble. Her knowledge is unbeatable as well. You have the best in this Doctor. I'm so glad you have added the Medicare add on insurance.
I satisfied with care provider attention to my questions and with provided explanations.
Dr. Weinlander and her nurse were most supportive and helpful.
Excellent--caring, compassionate, matter of fact and practical, with conservative suggestions for options prior to starting bp meds
Dr. Weinlander is a fantastic doctor! I have recommended her to friends who were looking for a new primary care physician and they are now patients of hers also.
Dr Weinlander is a very knowledgeable MD. She is very kind, caring and collaborative in her treatments. I couldn't ask for a better primary care doctor.
It was my 1st time in Dr. Weinlander, and she was professional, efficient, and did not appear rushed. I was very happy w/her.
good experiece
excellent by all standards
Simply the best!
Eva was great, as well as her medical student. They were very thorough and included me in the process. They helped get me a referral quickly to the Derm clinic and gave me information for who to contact if my situation got worse.
Dr. Weinlander is a smart, caring and well-informed physician.
I was impressed by the ease of getting this appointment and seeing the doctor on the same day. That, combined with the quality of care I received, show superlative service for this particular visit/need I had. Thank you.
Very knowledgeable. Gave me great care for a very serious health issue.
As I said earlier in this survey, there was not enough time to discuss my health concerns. I am very disappointed that the Stanford Health Clinic has mandated 20 minute physical exams.
Physician extended time spent with me beyond the end of my appointment in an attempt to cover as much ground as possible. Time constraints are difficult for conscientious physicians and for their patients who are seeking explanations and answers to more than one health issue.
She (the doctor) is an excellent doctor.
Dr. Eva Weinlander is the best primary care doctor at Stanford.
Dr. Weinlander is the best primary care dr. at Stanford.
This is the BEST primary care doctor that Stanford has.
Best doctor in the world has my trust.
Dr. W. Has been our Family Physician for 20+ years. She is always up to the minute on new treatments, concerned for our personal care and health, always offers alternative modalities for ongoing issues and is an amazingly knowledgeable, caring and gifted provider.
20 minutes is not enough time for physical!!!
Dr. Weinlander is an excellent physician; direct, thorough and extremely helpful.
Dr. Weinlander is a fantastic doctor. I'm so grateful I found her to be my primary.
Again, I was scared and confused Eva Weinlander and the other doctor (I can't remember her name) took excellent care of me. Got me to hospital quickly.
She was concerned about my health & helpful.
Dr. Weinlander provided excellent care, and was wonderful to listen to my concerns, and to thoroughly seek solutions.
Overall a positive and gratifying experience.
I have been seeing Dr. Eva Weinlander for over 12 years & she is an excellent physician in every way.
Was more thorough last time, this time care provider was rushed.
Professional, friendly and highly competent!
I was puzzled that the records of my Lab tests in 2013 were nowhere to be found! I had to send a copy of my copy from home. Very strange!
Dr. Eva, is a wonderful doctor, she has always made me feel, I could trust her decision concerning my health, and that I am important to her.
Despite the limited time I had with Dr. Weinlander, I was fully satisfied with my visit and her concern for me.
Dr. Weinlander is genuine, knowledgeable, and respectable, she also has a great attitude.
The dr.'s are number one! I am writing in my hand (smile).
A 20 minute physical (including 10 minutes with assistant) is ridiculous. I could have done better with e-mails.
They informed me of the new time allotted to me and prompted me to start immediately asking my questions while doctor was working & listening at the same time.
20 minute is very short for a routine, once-a-year physical - you have to talk very fast.
Dr. Weinlander is fantastic & such a caring person.
I always get the feeling that because I am generally in good shape that I am wasting her time by showing up for an annual check up. The sick people need her more. She is always in a RUSH.
Treat me like a family member.
Dr. is excellent in responding to my health messages.
