    Dr Weaver listened to my concerns and then gave me his recommendations to try to help in those areas. The first time in 3 1/2 years that a surgeon is listening to my concerns and not brushing them off

    I cannot begin to express how impressed I am with Dr. Weaver. He took so much time out of his day to show me exactly what my medical problem is and explain in detail everything that can be done about it. Dr. Weaver is obviously a very special doctor and remarkably skilled. I have the utmost confidence in him and am quite grateful for his time and attention.
