“I appreciate meeting the challenge of providing patients the best function possible while seeking to cure their illnesses.”
Dr. Timothy Wengert views his practice as
a way to combine two passions: applying
scientific approaches to providing the best
medical treatment possible and interacting
with people who are motivated to get better.
Board-certified in colon and rectal surgery
and general surgery, Dr. Wengert has
integrated this patient-oriented approach
into his practice at Marshfield Clinic.
“I involve patients in making individualized
health care decisions by explaining treatment
options in a clear and understandable
fashion,” he said.
Regarding Marshfield Clinic, he said, “I
wanted, and found, a community-based
program that offered a collaborative staff environment and facilities that allow me opportunities to treat a wide range of conditions, from colitis to cancer.” He added, “I simply enjoy using whatever
gifts I have to improve patients’ health.”
A graduate of the University of Iowa College of Medicine, Iowa City, Dr. Wengert completed his surgery internship and residency at Marshfield Clinic/Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital, and a fellowship in colon and rectal surgery at Ferguson/Blodgett Hospital, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
He shares his knowledge and experience by training future generations of medical professionals as a clinical assistant professor,
Department of Surgery-University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison.
Dr. Wengert has three children. He enjoys reading, outdoor activities and being involved with his children’s school activities.
