“As a general surgeon, I meet people when they are in a time of crisis. One of the nice things about my profession is that you meet someone when they are vulnerable, and you help them out with a health concern. As a general rule, we are able to address their concern immediately and make them better, and see them come through that.” Dr. Pasiuk and her husband, Bret Pasiuk, MD, an Agnesian HealthCare nephrologist, have relocated to the Fond du Lac area. They have two-year-old twin boys, Xavier and Alexander.
Dr. Nervi offers a full range of surgical services, including advanced laparoscopic procedures, varicose veins and colonoscopies. A graduate of the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Dr. Nervi completed his general surgery residency at Loyola University Medical Center – a full-accredited level I trauma center, with transplant, vascular, pediatric and thoracic experience. He is board certified by the American Board of Surgery.
As a nurse practitioner, Smits assists general surgery and orthopedic physicians in offering a complete range of care including orthopedic concerns (total joint replacement, sports medicine, pediatric orthopedics, trauma and fractures) and general surgery issues (advanced laparoscopic procedures, varicose veins and colonoscopies).
“I work collaboratively with my patients and partner with them to effectively diagnose and treat their specific health concern,” Smits says. “Being able to serve the community I live and grew up in is extremely rewarding for me.”
