Josh Wienczkowski, MD
Dr. Josh Wienczkowski worked with High Point Clinic, and was mentored by our Dr. Vance Shaw from January, 2019 to July, 2020. He left Johnson City, TN, and moved to Nashville, TN to continue his education in addiction medicine as he also is addressing policies around buprenorphine use in Tennessee. We wish him the best and are grateful for the time in which we had Dr. Wienczkowski here helping to take care of our patients.
Written by Dr. Josh during his time here:
"My name is Dr. Josh Wienczkowski, MD, and I’m originally from Michigan, but found my way to Tennessee when I was working in the music industry in my young 20’s. I ultimately pursued my education at Middle Tennessee State University, where I attended undergraduate, and went to medical school here in Johnson City at the ETSU Quillen College of Medicine. Following medical school, I completed my internship with the ETSU Family Medicine of Kingsport program. My interest in evidence-based addiction medicine started in medical school while I rotated through High Point Clinic, where I really felt I connected with the patients and saw a great need in our community for compassionate care.
On a personal note, my wife and I met in medical school, and she’s currently completing her residency in Pediatrics with ETSU Pediatrics. We have a Great Dane, Wrigley, and love to take him hiking. When I’m not working or teaching, I have a home studio I work from as an audio engineer; if I’m not there, I’m probably out on the lakes and rivers of East Tennessee fishing for trout!" ... and now he is in Nashville, TN !!!!
