Division of Cardiology
Kern Buckner, MD, Division Chief
What do we do? We provide comprehensive cardiology evaluation and consultation and non-invasive cardiac testing. We evaluate and treat heart problems such as coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart valve problems and heart failure. In addition to traditional heart problems, we offer expertise in many other focus areas, including evaluation of patients with shortness of breath with exercise, sarcoid of the heart, diastolic dysfunction and secondary pulmonary hypertension.
Why National Jewish Health? At National Jewish Health, we treat the whole person, not just the disease. Our cardiology team works with healthcare providers from all areas of the medical center, including rehabilitation therapists, dietitians and clinical researchers.
