After six weeks of waiting for my appointment I arrived and they proceeded to tell me I did not have an appointment. I had the document they sent me to fill out and it said April 10 the receptionist told me that my appointment was on 3 April and did not do anything to accommodate me I showed her the statement saying April 10 the office personnel Was unprofessional told me basically oh well you’ll have to reschedule. Very very disappointed in this professional atmosphere will not reschedule!

Dr. Wetherington performed a serious back surgery on my broken back and saved me from a wheel chair. He is intelligent, kind, performs gentle exam, listens well, explains well, and most important, gives you straight up choices. Excellent Doctor!

Told me to follow up with him in 6 weeks after initial meeting as I was a new patient then cancelled and said he was not going to treat me a week before appointment leaving me without a doctor for my back injury. Nice knowing you !!

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Wetherington and Kim the Nurse Practitioner October 31, 2017. Dr. Wetherington and Kim were very thorough and patient. Dr. Wetherington's approach proved he is interested in exhausting all of my non-invasive options, even though he is a Neurosurgeon.. He and Kim's bedside manner was impeccable! When I left I was more informed about my condition, and options. I also feel comfortable going forward in their care should surgery be the only alternative.

Great doctor! He has a great "bedside" manor. If you want someone to talk to you like a person and not talk over your head he is your doctor. The appointment wait time is longer but worth it!!!
