*Dr. Weaver has always taken excellent care of *Emily. She's being seeing him for 12 yrs. & we are grateful for all that he has done for her. He is a wonderful physician, and we feel lucky to have her in his care. We couldn't ask for a better doctor.

8/29/2017

Not impressed with provider

8/12/2017

Dr. Weaver lacks personality and patient bedside manner. I have full confidence in his ability as a physician but he has no personality and is almost rude to the children. I gave myself a pep talk before going in and explained to my son that he was not a nice person but a good doctor. So frustrating but again, I have confidence in his ability to practice medicine.

8/1/2017

Dr Weaver has poor bedside manner. did not take into account my sons physical disability when asking him to perform a task. treated my son as if he was unable to communicate even though I told him he could. spoke of future surgery but never said what for. treated his employees poorly. the office seemed very awkward as if they were afraid of him. he wouldn't allow my wife in the exam room because we had other children even though she has been allowed in the past when we saw another provider there.

7/31/2017

The doctor kept referring to my son's vision as 'bad' 'bad' 'bad. Talked like my son wasn't even in the room. Very disappointed.

7/22/2017

He should not work with kids. He didn't explain anything. He was rude and didn't seem to care about my child at all. He wouldn't let my child hold his little toy during exam he took it from him and said if he wouldn't get it back until he cooperated. He didn't explain what he found he had the lady who took pictures of my son's eyes try to explain it. We are seeking a different physician for another option because i have zero confidence in Dr weaver.

6/19/2017

Dr. Weaver is extremely knowledgeable and an asset to the eye center, every year he is able to prescribe my son, Dylan, the best possible prescription. Under Dr. Weaver's care Dylan's vision has improved from 20/150 to 20/25.

6/19/2017

Of all our doctors with a 24 week preemie Dr. Weaver has always between Baptist and Missions in Asheville our favorite, most trusted physician ever. I pray that all the interns that's rotated through him pick up a tiny bit of his knowledge and kindness he has always shown my daughter.

6/12/2017

Dr Weaver was not friendly and not meant to work with pediatrics. He did very little to attempt to comfort my child during the exam and then made me to feel bad because my two year old was not compliant with the exam. I will be seeking follow up elsewhere.

3/27/2017

For someone treating children, he takes no interest in the child or parent as actual people. It felt like a mill for kids, not a care provider.

3/7/2017

This was our first time seeing Dr. Weaver, and my son and I loved him. He had a dry sense of humor - which I can appreciate - and with that, he put my concerns and worries at ease. In fact, when I was telling my husband about his 'direct' comments, he said that he sounds like the kind of doctor that "I" need seeing as though I tend to worry about everything. He definitely put my mind at ease when it came to my son's vision concerns and I would highly recommend him to all of my parent friends.

2/20/2017

I was beyond impressed with Dr Weaver. My son was a patient of Dr Hein so this was the first time seeing Dr Weaver. He took extra time and did a very detailed exam including extra pictures of Brandon's eyes that he had never had done prior to this visit. I hope Dr Weaver stays for a long time.

2/12/2017

we love doctor weaver
