Eric Viertel Krieger, M.D., is a UW assistant professor of medicine in cardiology and adjunct associate professor of pediatric cardiology.

Dr. Krieger's clinical interests include adult congenital heart disease, pregnancy and heart disease, cardiac MRI and echocardiography. His research interests include long term outcomes in adults with repaired congenital heart disease, vascular health in coarctation of the aorta, pregnancy and congenital heart disease.

He teaches medical students, medical residents and cardiology trainees the principles of heart disease as well as how to care for adults with congenital heart disease.

Dr. Krieger believes the care of adults with congenital heart disease requires a collaborative approach with excellent communication between the patient, doctor and consultants. He also believes that giving time for patients to understand their condition and discuss treatment options is crucial, and often changes in lifestyle can have profound effects.
