I really think very highly of DR Weathers and his team. He has already done Total Left Knee replacement for me. I will go [date] to have right knee one. I have recommenced him to others.

the doctor himself was very professional but needs improvement on his "bed-side manor ". it felt like I was wasting his time and he seemed in a hurry to be done. could just be me but my partner who was in the room also had the same observation.

Dr. Weathers continues to explain my condition and includes me in the decision making about my treatment. He talks to me and not over me. He truly seems concerned about me which is so refreshing. After several "not so great" experiences with other Kaiser providers I feel lucky to have him.

*Dr. Weathers treats me as a unique individual and not a "one size fits all" approach. He listens to me & truly seems interested in helping me. He is genuine & sincere. I wish more doctors used his approach.

*Dr. Weathers provided excellent & through care. I like his slightly informal but professional manner. I do wish he had told me a little more about the x-ray terms of the extent of healing.

the actual visit with the doctor was very poor in my opinion. did not seem interested in solving my issues, twenty minutes late to the second appointment of the day. it did not appear any prep had gone into the appointment and also appeared he was only viewing the mri results on the fly.

Dr. needs to work on connecting with patient. I felt he was there to do his job and not be connected to me.

This was a pre-op appointment before knee replacement surgery. Everything was explained to my understanding and all questions were answered to my satisfaction.

I grew up in the Rocky Mountains of Utah and completed medical school and orthopedic surgery training in San Antonio, Texas. From there, my family and I packed up and moved to Southern California, where I completed a year-long sports medicine fellowship. Now we're excited about being in the Pacific Northwest. My wife and I spend most of our time with our five kids. They keep us busy! I love to be outdoors golfing, snowboarding, and having fun on the lake.

About my practice

I am excited to be practicing orthopedics in this beautiful area. There are countless outdoor activities to enjoy, and my goal is to help members get healthy so that they can take advantage of all of it. As a sports medicine specialist, I focus on shoulder and knee pathology, but I take care of fractures as well. I specialize in arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder (mainly rotator cuff disease and instability) and knee (mostly instability and cartilage repair). Diligent, correct rehab is vital to the recovery process. With each case, it is a 50/50 effort on the part of physicians and members to achieve success. One thing I enjoy about orthopedics is the team approach to member care. I enjoy being a Kaiser Permanente provider because I can focus 100 percent of my time on member care.

How I thrive

I stay active on a daily basis. Physically, I enjoy taking care of my yard, playing sports with my kids, and playing with my dog. Mentally, I have found that serving others makes the most difference in my life. In spirit, I am active in my church and teach a weekly class of 14- and 15-year-olds.
