Dr. John M Wessinger has the following 2 specialties
- Diagnostic Radiology
Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.
A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

Dr. Weissinger has been one of the best doctors I have seen in a long time. He takes his time with you and makes sure you understand everything that is going to go on. I had complications after my procedure and I am convinced if he was not there I would not of made it. I want to thank him and his staff for being so kind and thoughtful.
I never even heard of Interventional Radiology. Wow.. did I learn a ton from Dr Wessinger. I found I had a blockage behind my rt knee and he was quick to go in and take care of the artery, adding a balloon. When a clot broke loose that evening he met me at the hospital and went straight to work again. he made me feel like I was the ony patient he had... I I found out he had others.. he stayed late at the hospital, visited me in ICU, always made me feel A #1. He evened followed me when I had my bypass. I would recommend if you needed an IR get him! He is great!
