Richmond, VA |
I've seen Dr. Weatherford since I was a teenager. I literally cannot recommend her enough. Her warmth always puts me at ease, and she has helped my navigate some especially trying times. Recently she performed a laparoscopic surgery to remove ovarian cysts. I was terrified but her and her team made the entire process painless. She takes the time to explain things thoroughly and never pushes procedures or things that are unnecessary.
in Richmond, VA |
Dr Weatherford is the most caring, sweet doctor there is. She listens to her patients concerns. She made me feel at ease through my entire pregnancy.
in Richmond, VA |
I go to that GYN office I leave with a smile they are very friendly and everything is done in a timely manner I'm never there all day waiting to see my doctor like most doctors offices and the doctor is very friendly and takes the time to talk to you about your issues
in Henrico VA |
I have had such a wonderful experience with Dr. Weatherford over the years. Followed her from another location. She and her staff are quick to respond to my concerns, have referred me to other great physicians as needed for my overall gynecological health. Kudos

Mechanicsville, VA |
I have been with Dr. Weatherford for years and recommend her to all of my friends.
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.
Mechanicsville, VA |
Dr. Weatherford is great. I have been a patient for over 15 years and could not be happier. She has delivered my three children and helped me through some very difficult times. I trust her completely.
Our practice aims to deliver the highest quality patient care. We love to hear about these positive experiences. Thanks for sharing this feedback with us!
in Richmond, VA |
I absolutely can't say enough good things about Dr. Weatherford. I have recommended her to several friends and family members.
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.
in Richmond, VA |
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.
Elkhart, IN |
Knowledgeable, straightforward and very easy to talk with. I feel very comfortable with her and well-cared for when I leave the office.
Midlothian, VA |
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!
in Richmond, VA |
I have been a patient of Dr Weatherford's for several years. She is a bright and competent physician. She takes the time necessary to address questions thoroughly and completely. She has a warm personality that puts me at ease.
in Richmond va |
Very rude when I called for help. Rushed me off the phone and acted as if I should not have bothered her.

in Glen Allen, VA |
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.
Glen Allen, VA |
She always takes time to listen and engage during office visits.
