dr. weeding was informative and he gave us many suggestions on what to work on for our son. he listened to all of our concerns and seemed genuinely interested and concerned for a timely follow up. I would have liked to hear more feedback on his observation of where my son is at in his development.

September 18, 2018 7:00 PM

I refer Dr. Weedon to friends who's children are not getting the development help they need. Dr. Weedon takes his time with his patients & tailers a treatment plan to fit each child's needs.
