10/31/2016

We were in the office too long, total 4 hours. Provider did not introduce himself to us. We were new patients. He didn't know my son's history beforehand. He ignored any questions I or my son tried to ask.

7/10/2016

*Dr. Weaver was a blessing. At 18 months old I knew my daughter had an eye condition after 4 doctors we found *Dr. Weaver who knew what was wrong and how to fix it.

5/31/2016

Seemed a little grumpy/bad day.

5/29/2016

Dr. Grey is a little dry for my liking as a kid optometrist. It felt as if he either doesn't like interacting with people or is scared to do so. He didn't really explain what was about tohappen or how it may differ from an adult eye exam he just introduced himself as jumped into things.

5/1/2016

Dr. Weaver is very professional and extremely knowledgable, but he isn't the most personable individual. He did take the time to explain more about how my child interprets visual information and I appreciate that a lot.

5/1/2016

did not introduce himself and seem interested in getting to know daughter's disability. did not try to connect with daughter and explain what he is doing since she is special needs. seemed conceited and disinterested in hearing situation and problems. definitely did not seem to be pediatric friendly. won't go back.

2/25/2016

*Dr. Weaver explained my child's condition to her clearly and was great at establishing a strong rapport.
