Jeffrey Weisberg, MD

Jeff Weisberg, MD is Agilence Health Advisors' Physician Initiatives Practice Leader. Jeff leads physician-related projects across all Agilence business lines. A graduate, with honors, of Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, Jeff is a pioneer in the fields of emergency medicine and physician practice management methodologies. After medical school, Dr. Weisberg trained in Internal Medicine at Mount Sinai and Stanford University Medical Centers.
Following training, Jeff pioneered the development of Emergency Medicine as a medical specialty. He served as Director of Emergency services and of all ambulatory services at major community hospitals in California, Washington D.C. and New York. During that period, he developed physician training programs, hired and fired physicians, and organized innovative programs to deliver first-rate services. Jeff also spearheaded one of the earliest sophisticated, pre-hospital paramedic services in the United States. While in the role of Emergency Department director, he developed processes to coordinate entire hospital staffs with the Emergency Department to establish referral and response systems.

Jeff co-founded DOCS, a model for capturing large volumes of patients for the primary and specialty physicians of the group and for testing and ancillary services. This was accomplished by strategically placing aesthetically attractive multi specialty centers over a large region in the Westchester and Manhattan counties. DOCS offered extended hour, seven day a week access to quality physicians. DOCS developed effective systems and procedures to coordinate specialists and specialty services with primary care services so that patients could receive most outpatient and hospital services within the practice. Within a few years, the DOCS managed several hundred physicians and over three thousand supporting employees. DOCS became nationally recognized as a high quality model for managing and integrating multi-specialty physician practices. Beth Israel Medical Center (now part of Continuum Health Partners) purchased DOCS as a centerpiece for their strategy to affiliate with a cadre of high quality physicians and access advanced practice management systems. Weisberg was retained by Continuum Health Partners to lead an innovative physician initiatives business unit designed to integrate referral, technology and physician recruiting methodologies developed at DOCS across all Continuum campuses. The physician initiatives unit was responsible for recruiting new voluntary and staff physicians, as well as implementing strategies to create synergies among physicians within the Continuum system. Weisberg implemented several effective initiatives including creating a unique physician service to facilitate referrals from across all specialties and campuses; New York Bone & Joint, a multiple hospital orthopedic venture to market and accrue more patients in unique ways; physician partnerships and real estate coordination; and the design and construction of new outpatient sites.
Jeff resides in both New York City and Connecticut. He is married with two grown children.
