About Me

Care Philosophy

As a cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon I am an optomist. I will always choose to help if I feel there is a chance. I am an aggressive surgeon but I would like to think that I always try to accurately assess the risks of surgery and the benefits. I also choose to always treat people with respect.

Dr Weincek is an excellent doctor and surgeon. I was referred to him by my primary for an emergency situation. He spent the time to explain everything and why surgery was the only option. I owe him my life. I consider myself very lucky to be in his care.
