Care Philosophy

My approach to caring for patients is to empower patients with process knowledge and solutions. I consider myself a partner in each patient's healthcare. I believe each patient must be informed and have access to all of the information necessary to make the important life decisions. It is my duty to be available and responsive to questions or concerns. A doctors oath is more than simply filling ethical standards: it is prevention, it is cure, it is warmth sympathy and truth.Read more

She was a doctor that I saw at the Richardson Wound Care facility. Her office has turned me over to a collection agency over a $26 bill that my insurance company says that I don't owe. Be careful of this doctor.

Dr. Wishnew says...

While many high schooler's dreamt of becoming athletes or musicians, I pictured a white coat and stethoscope caring for ill patients. The characteristics that have help me succeed scholastically have carried forward into my private practice.  I maintain both a drive to work hard, as well as a love for caring for patients and calming their fears.  My approach to caring for patients is to empower patients with knowledge encourage them to be a partner in their healthcare. 

 Because of my strong belief and family choosing where to establish a private practice was easy. I came back home.

Dr. Wishnew says...

As a general surgeon, I am capable of treating most conditions of the abdomen including appendicitis, hernias, gallbladder issues, and diverticulitis. I am a specialist in gastroparesis and the robotic placement of the gastric stimulator. 

Also I am a specialist in wound care including venous, arterial and pressure wounds.

Dr. Wishnew says...

I can perform open/laparoscopic surgeries of the abdomen including gallbladder, appendix and colon removal and hernia repairs.  I have taken a special interest in robotic surgery as a means to decreasing pain and shortening hospital stays. Using the robot I can repair hernias, remove colons and gallbladders, and place the gastric stimulator.

I am blessed to be one of two robotic surgeons in the state performing the robotic placement of the gastric stimulator.
