About me

Dr. Misty Carlson is a pediatric cardiologist who treats congenital and acquired heart conditions in children, arrhythmias, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. She provides general cardiology care including transthoracic and fetal echocardiography, new patient consultations, follow-up for children with heart conditions and lifestyle interventions in the treatment and prevention of adult onset cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Carlson’s 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. The care patients receive should be high quality and comprehensive and be provided in a caring and family-centered environment.

In her free time, she enjoys watching her children’s athletic activities, attending University of Oregon athletic events, running, reading and cooking plant-based foods.

Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
