My 90-day Performance Optimization Program

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Confucius, c.500 BC

Welcome to my medical practice. My name is Mitch Weisberg. I became a Medical Doctor in 1987, a Board Certified Internist in 1990,  and I am  proud to say that on October 31, 2014 I passed The American Board of Internal Medicine Certification Exam for the third time in as many decades. In 2006 I got certification as a Master Psychopharmacologist, which means that as well as being a Board Certified Internist, I also have much more clinical experience than the average doctor diagnosing and treating mental health problems.

For complete disclosure, in spite of my extensive education and training I must have slept through the lecture in which doctors learn that the mind and the body are separate. As far back as I can remember I have always thought of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health to be indivisible components of a single entity I like to call, a person. According to my clinical method, a symptom is whatever a person tells me is keeping him or her from feeling and functioning (performing) their very best (optimally). I spend my work-day helping the people I have the good fortune to call, my patients optimize their health, wellbeing and performance. Here is how we do it:

My 90-day Performance Optimization Program

Helping you feel well so you can do well

Step 1

Our Initial Assessment

I will only need to get to know you once; then we are off to the races

What is well-being? In my opinion, there is only one way to measure it and it is not with a blood test, CAT Scan, thermometer or a blood-pressure cuff. Your well-being is exactly what you say it is. So, the first thing I am going to do when we meet is ask you to rate your wellbeing on a scale of 1 (lowest) to 10. Next, I’ll ask you to explain to me in your own words what you feel is keeping your from being a 10. For the next 90 minutes I will carefully listen to your answer. By the end our initial meeting, I will share with you my unified theory of why you are feeling and performing as you are; and most importantly, together we will develop a realistic strategy for optimizing your health, wellbeing and performance. Here is the Intake form I want you to print and complete in preparation for our initial meeting:

Step 2

The Process of  Performance Optimization

For the next 90 days we will stay in close contact with regular office meetings (or video calls if necessary) during which we will refine and execute our shared mission of optimizing your health, wellbeing and performance.

Step 3

Maintaining Optimal

At the end of our 90-day program, I offer you two options:

  • You can continue working with me and I will be your Primary Care Physician.


  • I draft a comprehensive clinical summary and have and in-depth discussion with your existing Primary Care Physician so he or she can pick up from the point where you and I leave off.

If you are ready to get started, or if you have any questions please e-mail me at or give me a call at (847) 999-5120 x 1.
