Dr. Miniaci’s care philosophy centers on thorough communication with patients, their families and their provider team. He listens intently and discusses conditions in detail, helping patients feel heard and confident in their decision.
Like many grandparents, Dr. Miniaci enjoys spending time with his grandchildren, especially on the beautiful Canadian coast. He also enjoys golf but admits his surgical skills are far better than his golf skills.
