Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wiencek Jr "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."
