    Dr. Bruce Wenig is a Senior Member in the Department of Anatomic Pathology at Moffitt Cancer Center. Dr. Wenig also serves as the Section Head of Anatomic Pathology External Network Consultation Services and the Section Head of Moffitt’s Head and Neck–Endocrine Pathology Program. Dr. Wenig received his MD from Sackler School of Medicine/New York State Division at the Tel Aviv University in Israel. He completed an Anatomic and Clinical Pathology Residency in the Department of Pathology at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York. Dr. Wenig completed a Fellowship in Surgical Pathology in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, California, and a Fellowship in Otolaryngic Pathology at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington, DC. Following his Fellowship, Dr. Wenig was a Staff Pathologist (1987-1998) for the Department of Otolaryngic-Endocrine Pathology at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, and also served as Chief, Division of Otolaryngic Pathology, Department of Endocrine and Otorhinolaryngic Head and Neck Pathology, Washington, DC. From 1998 to 2001, Dr. Wenig was the Vice Chairman for Anatomic Pathology and Professor of Pathology, Department of Pathology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY. From 2001 to 2003, he was Vice Chairman for Anatomic Pathology, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center, St. Luke’s – Roosevelt Hospitals, New York, NY, and Associate Director, Continuum Cancer Center of New York. Prior to joining Moffitt, he was the Chairman, Department of Diagnostic Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, Mount Sinai Roosevelt, New York; Vice Chairman of Anatomic Pathology, Department of Pathology, Mount Sinai Health System, NY; and Professor of Pathology, Department of Pathology, Icahn School of Medicine, Mount Sinai, NY. Dr. Wenig’s main clinical interests are in diseases of the head and neck and of endocrine organs including oncologic and non-neoplastic diseases. He has published extensively in peer-reviewed journals as well as authoring/editing several textbooks and numerous book chapters on head-and-neck and endocrine pathology. The third edition of his singly authored book, The Atlas of Head and Neck Pathology, was published in 2016. His research is primarily clinically focused, utilizing classic morphology in conjunction with immunohistochemical and molecular biologic techniques in the evaluation of a wide spectrum of diseases of the head and neck and of the endocrine organs.

  • Patient Comments

    Overall Satisfaction


    0 patients rated this provider

    The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related questions from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.

    Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.

    Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.

    We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may risk the privacy of our patients. A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely off-topic.

    Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from the previous 12 months.

    Provider Ratings and comments are gathered from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. If a provider does not have ratings or comments listed it can be for several reasons, including:

    • The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys to be eligible for display. We require a minimum of 30 surveys before we post results to ensure that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of patient satisfaction.
    • He or she may be a researcher or other type of provider that does not see patients.
    • The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified surveys currently used for these ratings.
