    He was thorough with his exam except for the exam of the actual injuries. That's the only plus because he had his mind made up about me before he even did his exam. He lied in his report to back himself up and even went as far as to say I had a stable fusion and was faking it. I have MRI proof and report that it failed. He talked about me in the waiting room in front of other patients who were waiting. If I could give less than one star, I would.

    Dr. Weddington was very pleasant to me while trying to get me to have surgery. Once I had surgery it was as if he wanted nothing to do with me. I went in with one problem and now I have two problems. He discharged me although I still had swelling and inflammation. I'v lost respect for him and his treatment for me. He did not care about me. To date I have pain and problems with my arm buckling. I still have swelling and inflammation. I am so upset, I can not sleep. I was a fool to trust him!!!!
    Very odd bedside manner. Not thorough with diagnosis. Poor treatment plan, does not care about overall health of the patient.
