Special Interests:

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. Dr. Huehnergarth 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.

Practice Philosophy:

"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."
