Dr. Wolen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Wolen "I was born and raised in Wheeling, WV and graduated from Wheeling Park High School in 1993 (Go Patriots!). I am firmly rooted in this area and enjoy spending time with my wife and children."

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!"
