I had a quadruple bypass (with kidney failure) in May 2008. I owe my life to Dr Wiencek. I am now being evaluated for a kidney transplant in Florida, and part of that screening process is a total heart workup (angiogram, etc.). My cardiologist (Dr. Liccini) repeatedly remarked at what a fantastic job Dr. Wiencek did, and my heart is healthier than ever. The cardiac portion of the screening was passed with flying colors. Thank you, Dr. Wiencek (from the bottom of my heart) , Richard Provencal

This doctor is my hero. I can't say enough about how highly I think of him. He has done surgery on me 3 times, the first time was a surgery EVERYONE said could not be done, fo breast cancer that had moved up into my chest. The second was lymph node removal under my arm, the third was a very large seroma. I feel like Dr. Weincek was literally a gift from God to me and my family, I believe that he is a large part of the reason I am still here and raising my kids today.

I was recommended by other physicians to see this specialist for my tracheal stenosis. I am in the industry and so I did some checking around. He got nothing but rave reviews from the staff at the hospitals and his peers. He has a great bedside manner. I trust the information he gave me was complete and honest. I was able to ask questions and he took his time answering them. I have been through a major medical issue this past 6 months, he held my hand to help me get through this.
