Dr. Widmer practices family medicine with Matthew A. Braniecki, DO, at 3960 East Harbor Road, Port Clinton, where he treats patients of all ages.

Dr. Widmer is very clear, concise and takes the time a patient expects. His action level is over the top and his ability to recommend a procedure based on the situation is impressive. In my 60 plus years, I cant say I've ever been this pleased with my Doctor.
