Dr. Weatherford is a very knowledgeable physician who is also friendly and personable. She exceeded my expectations at my yearly GYN visit. She performed all the necessary medical exams. She answered all my questions in complete detail and easy to understand conversation. We discussed at length my osteoporosis in regards to medication, diet, repeating my dexa scan and referral to an endocrinologist. We also discussed Alzheimer’s, which runs in my family, and she recommended a book to read.

in Bon Air, VA |
I've been seeing Dr Weatherford for nearly 20 years. She is deeply invested in the health and well-being of every one of her patients. I've recommended her to many people and she's even delivered some close friends' children. She was extremely compassionate during a difficult time in my life and spent time at my hospital bedside when I had no-one. She is an incredible doctor and a tribute to those before her who knew the importance of whole-patient care.
Glen Allen, VA |
Avoid her at all costs!! She is the absolute WORST physician that I have ever seen! She was combative during my entire visit, completely uncooperative, and downright offensive! And, I was PAYING her for her time. AVOID, AVOID, AVOID!!! I will never go back to her or anyone in her practice again!
We are very sorry to hear about this and would like the opportunity to investigate the matter further. We encourage you to send us a private message with your contact information, or reach out to Wendy Anderson at 804-741-0440 so that we may discuss this issue.

Dr. Weatherford made me feel very comfortable! I would highly recommend her. This is my first pregnancy look forward to having her as my obgyn throughout my pregnancy and beyond.
Mechanicsville, VA |
My obgyn doctor retired. Dr. Shannon Weatherford was part of the same practice. She has an extremely pleasant looking face:) Upon meeting her, she didn't disappoint my expectations--she was knowledgeable, confident, kind, courteous, and encouraging. I've only seen her once but happy.
I have been going to Dr. Weatherford for about 14 years. When I started with her I had not kept up with my annual checkups and was nervous to visit with any Doctor. That feeling went away once she sat down and starting talking to me. She was informative and factual. Most of all I felt so comfortable with her.

I would highly recommend Dr. Weatherford! I've been going to this practice for almost 30 years. My doctor in the practice retired, so this was my first visit with Dr. Weatherford. She was absolutely delightful! I didn't feel rushed at all, she really took her time to get to know me!

I have been seeing Dr. Weatherford for over a decade, I adore her! She is like family, very compassionate, professional, and knowledgeable. Wouldn't want to see anyone else.
in Richmond, VA |
She answers all my questions. I never feel rushed. My exam was so uneventful (which is a good thing) when I received the results in the mail, I forgot I'd even had one done. They have been pretty traumatic in the past with other doctors. I love her and would recommend her to everyone.
