Dr. Weaver is very personable, has a sense of humor, and is easy to talk to. He spent time discussing my diagnosis and treatment options. He thoroughly reviewed my MRI with me, asked if I had any questions throughout the appointment, and treated me with compassion. This was quite a welcome surprise and contrary to my experience with the original surgeon I had consulted with.
