Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Visnaw "My care philosophy is "do no harm," so unless a patient truly needs surgery, I don't proceed down that route. There are many alternative options, and when surgery is the best fit then that's when I recommend it. Otherwise, we try some alternative aspects, whether it's medication, dietary changes, to that extent. So we try to do as minimal surgery as necessary because it does put people down for a certain period of time." "

Dr. Visnaw is fantastic on all counts. I was admitted to the hospital as an emergency patient my intestine ruptured and Dr. Visnaw kept in close contact with my husband during the entire ordeal.

Dr. Visnaw is one of the best doctors my husband and I have seen. He is approachable, looks you in the eye when he talks to you, and really listens to concerns. We never feel rushed during our visits. We would strongly recommend him.
