    Outstanding care for over 30 years

    We are very sad that Dr Weleber is retiring. He has been a big part of [Name]'s health care since he was 8 years old (14 years)

    Excellent provider, leaving the practice. I spent more time with Dr Wood?, another resident I think who did NOT impress me at all.
