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.

Regarding Marshfield Clinic Health System, 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.” “I simply enjoy using the gift I have to improve patients’ health,” Dr. Wengert said.

A graduate of the University of Iowa College of Medicine, Iowa City, Dr. Wengert completed his surgery internship and residency at the former Marshfield Clinic Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital, and a fellowship in colon and rectal surgery at Ferguson/Blodgett Hospital, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
