Dr. Weston is excellent. No one wants to have to go to the butt doctor, but if you do, she is the best. Although I wasn't there for a pleasantness procedure, Dr. Weston was not only thorough, she made sure I was comfortable and that things were done right.

I had to have a sigmoid colectomy due to diverticulitis and was referred to her by a gastro doc at the same group. She is knowledgeable, professional and incredibly thorough. I had complications a week later: she MET me at the urgent care before the attending got to me! She was investigating why it happened and the next morning told me she'd be up poring over journals trying to figure it out. She learned something: the chances of the complication were very low. I was the 1%. HIGHLY Recommend

Dr Weston is recognized by her peers as a leading surgeon in San Diego. I unfortunately had to have immediate intestinal surgery but thank the Lord Dr. Weston was available. After she reviewed my problems she was kind enough to adjust her schedule in order to perform the surgery within days. Dr Weston's explanations made you feel that you are in the best of hands. She conveys complete information and explains the alternatives very clearly. Her office is very responsive.
