“I enjoy making a difference in alleviating suffering by informing patients about their treatment options and discussing their preferences.”
Dr. Humberto Vidaillet came to Marshfield Clinic from Duke Medical Center in 1987, attracted by the Clinic’s mission to harness medicine, research and education to provide people with high-quality, accessible health care.
An avid investigator, Dr. Vidaillet said that integrating research into his everyday practice makes an impact on the health care of many.
With the “high tech” comes “high touch,” Dr. Vidaillet added. “I want patients to see me as their advocate, someone who strives to listen to their concerns and offers therapeutic choices that allow them to make informed decisions.”
Dr. Vidaillet earned his medical degree at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, Oklahoma City. He completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education, Rochester, Minnesota. He completed a fellowship in cardiology and electrophysiology at Duke University School of Medicine-Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina.
He has been board-certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease and clinical cardiac electrophysiology, which focuses on diagnosing and treating abnormal heart rhythms. He serves as a clinical professor at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison.
Dr. Vidaillet and his wife, Debbie, have three children (“along with a wonderful daughter- in-law and son-in-law”) and a grandchild. He enjoys spending time with his family and engaging with human rights issues.
