Pediatric cardiologist Misty Carlson, MD, joined the comprehensive pediatric program at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center in 2014 after completing her fellowship training at Oregon Health & Science University. Her goal is to improve access to pediatric cardiology services so that families can receive answers about their child's heart condition quickly and close to home.
"Hearing your child may have a heart condition is frightening for any parent. I want all of my patients and their families to feel that they have received high-quality and comprehensive care in their community and that it was provided in a caring and family-centered environment."
Dr. Carlson's clinical interests include the full range of pediatric cardiology conditions, as well as pulmonary hypertension treatment, fetal echocardiography, and exercise physiology and testing. Raised in Eugene, she enjoys playing softball and spending time with her family.
