Experience
As a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physician, or Physiatrist, my work centers on the restoration of function in people who have been effected by musculoskeletal conditions. My clinical practice has emphasized the spine, including the cervical, thoracic and lumbosacral regions, but I also work with patients whose problems involve evaluation of the hip, shoulder, the wrist and hand.
Philosophy
I believe that good physicians are educators first. My extended family includes a number of teachers - including elementary school teachers, high school teachers and university professors. I suspect and hope that if there is a gene that runs in good educators, I have two copies.
I find great pleasure in breaking down complicated medical issues and working towards a shared understanding with my patients. I believe that successfully treating complicated medical conditions (or even simple ones) requires a partnership between the patient and the physician. A successful partnership needs a mutual understanding of the task at hand.
Personal Information
I am a life-long Northwesterner. I was born in Seattle and grew up in Issaquah. My earliest memory is the Starbucks in Pike Place market. I'm proud to say that the winter rain doesn't bother me...much...and I think the Northwest has the best summers in the entire USA. Pro Tip: September weather is almost always better than June and Seattle summers traditionally start to the 5th of July.
Looking back, medicine was a good choice for me. I find pleasure in problem solving and working with patients on their particular challenges continues to satisfy me. I am a graduate of The University of Washington Medical School but I'm rarely up to speed on sports so you'll have to tell me what's up with the Huskies.
Some people who knew me in college never knew my name. I was always "That guy on the mountain bike". I still ride, but a lot slower.
My family and I are rock climbers and avid snowboarders. I train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu weekly.

I followed Dr. Weaver from The Everett Clinic. Neck and spine issues are very scary and Dr. Weaver has listened to each of my concerns, obtained a full medical history and mapped out a plan.

Dr. Weaver was exceptional and epitomized what a provider should offer - he listened, explained everything thoroughly and discussed various treatment options. He engaged me in decision-making and made sure I understood everything. He was fantastic.

I saw Dr. Weaver 6 yrs. ago @ EU clinic. I tried seeing someone else & was very unhappy. I was happy to find Dr. Weaver again & for the info I received.
