      My newborn son had a 10 day stay in the NICU at Providence in Everett. Dr. Weiss was his attending physician for a week of that. Dr. Weiss was incredibly kind during the scary first days and seemed genuinely happy when things started heading in the right direction. He was extremely patient with questions and reassuring when addressing my motherly anxiety. My husband and I felt he was really rooting for our son, which was very comforting. I won't ever forget his kindness and will be forever grateful for his significant part in my being able to bring home my baby safely.
