Greenville, SC |
I arrived 30 minutes early for my appointment, as instructed, but then had to wait 90 minutes past my apt time (2 hrs total wait). Dr Weir was hurried, did not have time for questions and did a poor job of explaining next steps.

Saw Dr. Weir recently. I totally trust his ability to diagnose. Wisdom comes with experience and he is extremely knowledgeable. He was great at listening to my problems and has really helped me with my sinus issues. My GP referred me to this clinic and I am so glad he did because I was having severe pain and Dr. Weir found my issue right away and it is now resolved. The staff here at this clinic were very friendly and caring too. Totally recommend Dr. Weir.

Efficient and direct, but not good at listening. I feel like I could have been mute and our appointments would have gone the same. Being told to try all the things I'd already tried after 2.5 months with chronic sinus pain was annoying, but I understand trying to avoid unnecessary surgery. We eventually reached a solid diagnosis, and the surgery went smoothly and so far seems effective. Good at the medical aspect, bad at the people aspect. Convinced I'm allergic to my cat despite no evidence.

Terrible Doctor. He does not need to be in practice. He does not how know how to diagnose the problem correctly. He didn't know how to diagnose my little two-year-old. I don't think he knows what he's talking about maybe he can deal with little minor ear infections but other than that he is not a real doctor. I will never ever go to him again. He should retire or be sued. I wish I could give him zero stars.
