A native of Orange County, Dr. Joseph Weiland is committed to serving the health care needs of his local community. He chose to align himself with Hoag due to the high standards of care to which the institution is committed and he is especially proud to be a Hoag Prime physician. In fact, it was a critical family experience at Hoag which first served as his inspiration and calling to pursue a career in medicine.
As a Hoag Prime physician, Dr. Weiland offers his patients an enhanced health care experience that is patient-centric and results-driven. As Dr. Weiland states, “Hoag Prime allows me to practice medicine in the way that I have always dreamed of. It gives me the opportunity to be there for my patients when they need me and affords me the time to listen and address their health care needs.”
Dr. Weiland enjoys family medicine and getting to know his patients. He is passionate about preventative medicine and seeks to assess health issues and mitigate health risks before serious problems occur. He knows that continuity of care is important, and strives to earn the trust of each patient, and by doing so, serve as the patient’s physician for life. According to Dr. Weiland, “I do my best to provide prompt and compassionate service, a receptive ear, and the best care possible, just as I would for a member of my own family.”
Dr. Weiland studied biochemistry at the University of California at Santa Barbara, attended medical school at the Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, and completed his residency in family medicine at College Medical Center in Long Beach. He is a life-long learner who realizes that in the constantly evolving field of medicine, there will be newly discovered knowledge to learn, emerging treatments, therapies and technologies to master and better ways to serve his community.
A husband and father to two young boys, Dr. Weiland leads an active and healthy lifestyle, and enjoys surfing, mountain biking and swimming.
