What People Say About Dr. Edgar Weaver Jr, MD
Reply
I wouldn't give the SOB ONE star! He RUINED my back and I live in horrible pain every day of my life! If I had had the sense at the time he did 3, yes, 3.. 1 one day, one the next and ten had to come back one week later and have a fusion that the rod was NOT put into, I would have sued him for malpractice in a New York Heartbeat!! STAY AWAY FROM THIS FOOL!! He has NO SENSE of right and wrong!! Now I'm stuck in as pain clinic that isn't much better but at least it's something. TOO OLD!

I would recommend Dr. Weaver to anyone seeking an neurosurgeon. I had spine surgery in September and it went just like he promised. It was a pleasant experience considering it was surgery. I feel very confident in his abilities. I have a better quality of life now that he fixed my problem.
