Dr Wendell Goins obtained his medical degree in 1979 from Howard University College of Medicine. He completed a Transitional Medicine Internship at the United States Public Health Service Hospital at Staten Island, NY IN 1980. He was a commissioned officer in the USPHS for 2 years.

There he received the Outstanding Resident Award and scored in the 99%tile on his Surgery in-training exam.

Dr Goins completed a Fellowship in Trauma/Surgical Critical Care at the R. Adams Cowley / University of Maryland Shock-Trauma Center in Baltimore, MD in 1989. He then served as Chief of Trauma-Surgical Critical Care and Chief of the Howard University Surgery Section at the District of Columbia General Hospital in Washington, DC until 1996. He was Assistant Professor of Surgery at Howard University College of Medicine where he authored or co-authored many medical journal articles, book chapters and received many teacher awards.

He moved to the Carolinas in 1996 (to spend more quality time with his young family) when he founded Mid-Carolina Surgery Specialist. He has had surgical privileges at several Charlotte, NC area Hospitals and has served as Chief of Surgery at one of them.

The Consumers Research Council selected Dr Goins as one of “America’s Top Surgeons” for the years 2009-2013. Dr Goins has a broad educational background and also has a wide depth of experience in the management of Varicose Veins, Cosmetic Procedures, and Anti-Aging and Wellness Medicine. Dr Goins is Board Certified in Family Medicine, Surgery, Surgical Critical Care, Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons.

He is an avid “Backpacker” and has been involved with Martial Arts for over 40 years. Dr Goins is now at a place in his medical career where he would like to tone down his practice of clinical medicine/surgery and now focus on helping other motivated hard working individuals (especially practicing physicians) continue on their Life’s Journey: optimizing “Fulfillment, ” “Balance” and “Living in the Moment.”
