Dr. Weiss joined the faculty at Stanford University in 1991 and holds positions in both Emergency Medicine and Infectious Diseases. In addition to founding the Stanford Travel Medicine Service, he developed and taught the first formal course on Travel Medicine at a United States medical school and currently lectures and consults internationally on emergency medicine, travel and tropical medicine topics. While at Stanford, Dr. Weiss was Medical Director for Stanford Life Flight as well as Emergency Medical Services for Stanford Hospital. Closer to home, he is the Medical Director for the Woodside Fire Department and is leading efforts to build a local Medical Reserve Corp to better serve our community.

From 1995 to 1997 Dr. Weiss was the Chief Medical Officer for San Francisco International Airport where he had his own primary care practice while also being responsible for all airport medical affairs including travel medicine, occupational health, and emergency medical services. From 1999 to 2001, he served as the Chief Medical Officer for MedicinePlanet, Inc., a high tech company dedicated to providing wireless health solutions to the mobile traveler. Dr. Weiss is currently on the Advisory Board of GlaxoSmithKline and Salix Pharmaceuticals helping with market strategies and vaccine development.

In 2004 Dr. Weiss relinquished his full time academic Stanford position and founded The Village Doctor, a so-called “Direct Care” or “Concierge Medicine” practice in Woodside. Having three young children at home he crafted a practice model and culture where he would like to have his family be patients. In addition to providing excellent healthcare, the goal was to have patients say “Wow!” when they walked out of the office or hung up the phone.

A fellow of both the American College of Emergency Medicine and the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, Dr. Weiss is also an active member of the International Society of Travel Medicine, the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Society of Concierge Physicians. Dr. Weiss received a BS in Biological Sciences from Stanford, an MD from UCSF, completed his residency and chief residency in Emergency Medicine at UCLA, and trained at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, where he received his Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
