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

6/10/2015

*Dr. Weaver is very RUDE and should not be working with kids. He was also rude to me, the parent. Very unpleasant experience and we will not see him again.

4/23/2015

Needs to be professional with less of a judgmental tone.

2/18/2015

*Dr. Weaver has cared for Emma since she was 6 mon. old. We trust and respect him and are thankful for his care & concern for her!
