Specialties

Dr. Timothy R Wessel has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

A GREAT cardiologist

I was given a coronary artery cath by Dr. Arthur Lee last week but he had to take a trip to Japan right after that. Dr. Wessel took over and installed 3 stents in my coronary arteries. He was so efficient that I did not even know the procedure was complete. He explained the entire procedure to me and the prognosis of my complete recovery. I stayed in the hospital overnight and the next day he came over discharged me. He was knowledgeable, patient, professional, and caring throughout the process. He is personable and passionate. He is the BEST!

I was out of town in Gainesville when I suffered a heart attack at 3:30 am in my hotel room. I was taken to North Florida Regional Medical Center and Dr. Wessel was called. He came in emergently and took me to the cath lab and placed 2 cardiac stents. He is a wonderful and caring professional. He spent a great deal of time with me and was never rushed.
