Joshua Woelk, MD-MS
Why did you decide to become a physician?
Helping others achieve a better quality of life through exceptional medical care has long been of great importance to me as I have been the recipient of such care myself. This, along with my interest in science and its application to the human body made the decision easy.
What are your clinical areas of interest?
Vaginal, robotic, and abdominal approaches to repair of pelvic organ prolapse. Other areas of interest include Urinary incontinence, Urogenital fistulae and Pelvic floor dysfunction.
What is your philosophy of patient care?
I firmly believe that each patient’s individual goals and best interests should be the sole guidance to his or her treatment plan through strong physician-patient communication.
How do you spend your free time? (family, hobbies, interests, volunteer activities, etc.)
I spend most of my time with my wife and two sons biking, hiking, traveling, or doing whatever other exciting activities we can find. Outside of that, I enjoy brewing up a batch of beer, reading, and playing and listening to music.
Provide an interesting anecdote about you.
I have played bluegrass banjo since I was 17 years old. I played and dabbled with various musical instruments over the years including the trombone, tabla and bass guitar, but the banjo has stuck with me throughout.
