Position Summary MD Pediatric Cardiologist
Additional Information

After completing fellowships in pediatric cardiology and electrophysiology (the study and treatment of heart  rhythm disturbances) at Texas Children’s Hospital, I practiced for six years at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children, where I was the first pediatric electophysiologist in Canada.  For the next 17 years I was at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, and moved to Washington in 2004.


 

Dr. Hesslein was voted "Top Doctors" in Seattle Magazine (2012).

A survey was mailed to more than 18,000 physicians in King, Pierce, Snohomish and Kitsap counties. The survey asked physicians to name the provider they would seek out or recommend to loved ones.
