Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wolen "I focus solely on the patient and his/her needs.  This includes not just treating the disease process surgically but treating the patient as a whole.  In some cases, this means making the decision not to operate, which can be more difficult than just going to the OR.  I take into account all of my patients' concerns (work, family support, social, financial, nutritional, etc.) before making a treatment plan to best fit each individual patient.  We are here for you!"
