"Dr. Weatherford delivered all four of my children, including my baby girl who had Full Trisomy 13 and is considered to be incompatible with life. She spent plenty of time with me and was extremely compassionate. I have been her patient for over 20 years and highly recommend her."

"Dr. Weatherford never spent anymore than 15 minutes per prenatal visit. Dr. Weatherford did not deliver my baby due to holiday scheduling nor even f/u with me after delivery for my post partum check up. I was not prescribed any pain medication after delivery. During my 25th week prenatal visit a quad screening was done which determined my baby may have down syndrome but after more testing and a very invasive amnio test it was determined my baby girl had 22q 11.2 micro duplication syndrome. Meredith the genetics counselor gave me the option to terminate in Maryland at 26 weeks! Do not trust Dr. Weatherford with the care of your baby if you're a POC because you won't get the same care."

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
