Kier Huehnergarth MD, FACC
Board certified in Cardiology and Nuclear Cardiology.
Dr. Huehnergarth earned his medical degree from Albany Medical College in New York and completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine where he also completed a fellowship in cardiology and served as chief fellow.
Dr. Huehnergarth’s practice encompasses all areas of heart disease, from prevention of heart disease to evaluation and treatment of more advanced forms of heart disease such as coronary artery disease, heart valve disease and heart failure.
He believes in diet and exercise as the foundation for preventing heart disease and as an important part of the treatment regimen for more advanced forms of heart disease. He enjoys working with patients to get started with an exercise program and to find a “heart healthy” diet. Dr. Huehnergarth also enjoys working with “weekend warriors” and athletes either with interest in preventing heart disease, symptoms of possible heart disease or with known heart disease.
"I enjoy caring for patients at all points in the cardiovascular disease process- from disease prevention to cardiac catheterization. I strive to educate patients to help them understand the basis, consequences and treatment of cardiovascular disease. I believe that through an understanding of heart disease and treatment options, patients are empowered to be advocates of their own health which leads to improved health outcomes."
Outside of cardiology, Dr. Huehnergarth enjoys spending time with his two teenage daughters. He enjoys most anything that involves physical activity and the outdoors, including distance running, hiking and skiing. He is also an avid reader with particular interest in history.
