Naftoli H Weingarten DPM
Dr. Weingarten is an experienced podiatrist who brings his deep interest in science and medicine to the patient experience, ensuring that everyone under his care receives the most advanced treatments available. With a history of diabetes in his family, Dr. Weingarten decided early in life that he wanted to help people suffering from this medical condition. Thus, he developed a keen interest in diabetic wound care which put him on the path to a career in podiatry.
In 2007 Dr. Weingarten enrolled at Manhattan's New York College of Podiatric Medicine (NYCPM) in Harlem, which has been at the forefront of podiatric medical education for more than a century. He graduated from NYCPM in 2011 and that same year began a podiatric medicine and surgery residency at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center (KJMC) in Brooklyn, New York. Dr. Weingarten completed two years of training at KJMC, including extensive work in the institution's Wound Healing Center. There, he became skilled at administering hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat hard-to-heal wounds, including those caused by diabetes. He worked extensively with both surgical and non-surgical treatment of diabetic wounds and also focused on limb salvage. Due to his exceptional performance at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center, Dr. Weingarten was chosen to serve as chief resident during his senior year.
Soon after Dr. Weingarten finished his residency at KJMC, he moved to Long Beach California and has worked at two private practices before deciding to start his own practice in Long Beach. Doctor Weingarten remains focused on achieving the best possible outcomes for his patients through cutting-edge care and innovative treatments. As such, he stays up-to-date on the latest developments in the field of podiatry. Dr. Weingarten is also an attending physician at College Medical Center, Long Beach Memorial Medical Center and Community hospital of Long Beach.
