She received her undergraduate degree from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. She earned her medical degree at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine in Los Angeles. She went on to complete her residency in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana. She then underwent dedicated pediatric otolaryngology subspecialty training at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

    As a former student of anthropology, Dr. Weinstein has extensively researched the cultural factors affecting successful implementation of public health policy. She has examined and advocated for community-based approaches to health education, with particular emphasis on HPV vaccination and cancer screening. Her work in the community underscored the critical role of communication in a child’s cognitive development and propelled her research on disorders of the pediatric airway and their surgical management. In particular, she has training in endoscopic and open airway surgery, including laryngotracheal reconstruction and laryngeal reinnervation. She is trained in all facets of pediatric ear, nose, and throat surgery.

    Dr. Weinstein values collaborative, patient-centered care, respecting the individual needs of each child. As a member of the Pediatric Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, she will be caring for patients at the Oakland, Brentwood, and Walnut Creek locations.
