I became a surgeon for one reason to provide compassionate, personal care to every patient every time. - Dr. Tony Weaver

The most meaningful role in his life is not that of a physician or surgeon it is the role as husband and father. His wife Jenny and three children remain the most important things to him. Tony would like for everyone to know that, “I love people and caring for them as a surgeon is an honor and a privilege, but that doesn’t define me. I am defined by how my family sees me, by my role as a father and spouse but most importantly by my life as a Christian.” Dr. Weaver is forever indebted to the patients, nurses, staff, teachers, attending surgeons and his fellow colleagues who continue to teach and inspire him.
