About

Dr. Wiener

I am a Board Certified Gastroenterologist in private practice since 1987 in Chula Vista, CA. I was born in El Salvador and am fluent in Spanish, French and English.

My practice consists of classic private full service Gastroenterology and Digestive diseases, using the latest diagnostic and therapeutic methods. The diagnostic method always includes a thorough evaluation of patient’s complaints, history, labs, x-rays, and procedures.

Further information about Dr. Wiener

The emphasis is on allowing the patient to express concerns and symptoms, in an attempt to obtain a global understanding. For this, I use the Scientific Method and the latest evidence from the accepted medical practice. Diagnostic Procedures include endoscopy, colonoscopy, cancer screening, small bowel video capsule, and Bravo esophageal pH monitoring. Therapeutic modalities include biopsy, polyp removal, ablation of esophageal varices, argon plasma and laser ablation of lesions, office hemorrhoid ablation, Barrx ablation of Barrett’s esophagus, stricture dilation, stent placement, and multiple other options.

Understanding the need for privacy and the difficulty in dealing with many gastroenterology issues, I do my best to keep the process comfortable, reassuring, pain-free and at times humorous. I want my patients to improve their quality of life, prevent disease, acknowledge and understand themselves better. My helpful and friendly staff, and I, look forward to serving you and your family by providing the best possible care. “
