Provider Bio down arrow

Dr. Susan Ksiazek, ophthalmologist at Wausau Center, was born into the health care profession. Her father owned a pharmacy and her mother was a nurse, which influenced her to become a physician.

“It has been a good fit,” she said. “I also liked to fix things and surgery was a natural choice for me. The precision of cataract surgery is appealing to me, and the ability to restore vision after surgery is very rewarding.”

Dr. Ksiazek can treat patients who are experiencing vision loss. This includes blurred vision while reading or driving at night, as well as glare. Her focus is to listen to her patient’s issue and care for their individualized needs.

“Patients are my priority,” she said. “The personal interaction with patients has always brought me enjoyment with my profession.”

Dr. Ksiazek received her medical degree from Rush Medical College in Chicago, Illinois. She completed her residency in ophthalmology at Albert Einstein Medical Center in New York.

Through the years, Dr. Ksiazek is most proud of her patient-centered awards – Making a Difference in 2015, and Senior Faculty Scholar in Bucksbaum Institute for Clinical Excellence in October 2016.

Outside of work, Dr. Ksiazek loves to cook and there is no cuisine she won’t try. She enjoys exercising at the gym, swimming and biking. She also loves gardening and has her own vegetable garden and fruit trees. Her husband is a civil engineer, and the couple has one daughter and one son. The family enjoys time spent together.
