Services Thursday for cardiologist Marius Wagner

Wagner-2012Marius Wagner, M.D, was known by many at Tucson Medical Center as a talented healer.

With a lifelong sense of duty to care for the sick, he practiced interventional cardiology as a partner at Pima Heart Associates for 30 years.

“Dr. Wagner was a great cardiologist and friend to many,” said Anita Bach, TMC’s Cardiovascular and Imaging Service Line Administrator. “He was extremely passionate about the care he provided to his patients and was often described as a big ‘teddy bear’ to those who knew and loved him. He will be missed in the cardiology community; especially at TMC where he served as our Cath Lab Medical Director for several years.”

Dr. Wagner completed medical school at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Romania and immigrated to America in 1975, where we would complete his internship and residency at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital. His Cardiology Fellowship was completed at Coney Island Hospital.

Board Certified in both Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular disease, Dr. Wagner moved to Tucson in 1983.

On Dr. Wagner’s Pima Heart site, he shared, “I practice medicine the old-fashioned way so I really enjoy interacting with my patients and hearing about their backgrounds and experiences. Every day I learn something new and interesting”

Prayers and a eulogy will be offered at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 25, 2017 at the Chapel of the East Lawn Palms Mortuary, 5801 E. Grant Road.
