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.

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

12/18/2015

Dr. Weaver is very knowledgable and is always professional. I trust him to do what is necessary to help John function as best as possible.

11/16/2015

Doctor was very ill ( mad because he was behind ) , he wanted to rush us out without my daughters eyes being displayed so he could get caught up .. Horrible experience

11/10/2015

Already stated in previous comments! He shouldn't work with special needs kids!

9/30/2015

*Dr. Weaver was really great to us this visit. He was friendly & warm & took time to answer my questions about Johns color perception. He also discussed options for correcting Johns _____. I very much appreciated the extra time he spent with us so I could be well informed about Johns care.

7/30/2015

Condescending, have determined after our last interaction that we will move our son's vision care to Duke.
