Dr. Weber was drawn to cardiothoracic surgery because of his fascination with the complexity of the human heart and lungs. He loves to help patients in challenging situations, while understanding how difficult it can be for someone to hear that they need surgery. “I believe open communication with my patients is crucial to providing the best possible care.” This often means customizing operative plans tailored to each patient’s needs and expectations. When it comes to his patients, Dr. Weber’s philosophy is simple, yet powerful: “I’ve been privileged to treat patients who come from so many different backgrounds and life experiences. By listening to them and their families, I have learned so much about their expectations and ultimately how best to treat and communicate with them.” He wants his patients to understand that he’s dedicated to their health and well-being. “I care about their medical condition but – possibly more importantly – I care about them as people.”
