Fun Facts

The best advice Dr. Wenker has received is “Always take care of what’s important now; that’s how you win at anything.”

Two of the most interesting places Dr. Wenker has visited are London, where he lived for a semester of college, and Vietnam, where he spent a month traveling during medical school.

Some of his favorites include carrot cake, the medical TV show “Scrubs,” historical figures Winston Churchill and Teddy Roosevelt, and the rock band Third Eye Blind.

Dr. Wenker’s guilty pleasure is watching reality TV with his wife, which he doesn’t feel very guilty about.
