Dr. Weiner sees a wide variety of ear, nose and throat problems. In addition, his practice includes a special interest in chronic sinusitis, particularly difficult to manage cases. He also now offers laser removal of many throat cancers using an endoscopic approach. Additionally, he is one of the first physicians in Arizona to now offer endoscopic treatment of Eustachian tube dysfunction with a minimally invasive balloon procedure (Eustachian tuboplasty).
He has consistently been selected to Phoenix Magazine's list of Top Doctors (and again in 2018).
In 2018, Dr. Weiner became certified to perform the Inspire procedure for patients with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea who cannot tolerate CPAP therapy.

The Inspire system is made of a small battery and 2 small wires. Inspire is placed under the skin of the neck and chest through three small incisions during an outpatient procedure. Most patients return home the same day and return to non-strenuous activities within a few days. Over-the-counter pain medicine is typically used for a few days after the procedure for pain management.
