Dr. Jerry Weiner, MD


As Manteca’s only full-time general surgeon, Dr. Jerry Weiner has improved and saved countless lives through his selfless commitment to his patients, hospital, and community. Over the past 35 years, Dr. Weiner has performed over 9,000 surgeries for patients in Manteca, Lathrop, and the surrounding communities. He continues to serve as an “on-call” physician within the Emergency Department, which means that he must be ready to respond immediately to an emergency regardless of his plans with family and loved ones. He has served in essentially every leadership role at Doctors Hospital of Manteca (DHM) including chairman of the Governing Board, Vice Chief of the Medical Staff and Chairman of the Department of Surgery. Exploring ways to better serve patients, Dr. Weiner formed the Tumor Board at DHM which serves as a platform for oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, and other physicians to collaboratively determine the best clinical care for patients with cancer. For many years, he has also led the DHM Ethics Committee, a committee that is tasked with making critical decisions for patients in their greatest time of need. Dr. Weiner serves as a role model for new physicians who come to our community. More times than can be counted, he provided guidance and counsel to other physicians. Of course, these many accomplishments are only a small sample of the immeasurable impact he has made and continues to make in our community. It is difficult to find a resident of the area, who has not been treated by Dr. Weiner or knows someone who has.
