Hannah and Kaia were both very pleasant and professional as well as Dr. Weatherford himself! He made sure I understood everything during my appointment and the three of them are just very personable people! My mother also had a wonderful experience with them as well therefore she ended up recommending Weatherford to me and I’m very glad I went to see him instead of going somewhere else! I will recommend your office to anyone who needs any orthopedic specialists! – Jennifer Reetz”

That was very well done.”
