Karen Stout, M.D., is a board-certified physician and associate chief of Cardiology at the Cardiology Clinics at UW Medical Center and Edmonds and a UW professor of Cardiology and an adjunct professor of Pediatric Cardiology. She believes the best medical care is provided by a team that includes the patient as a key team member.

Through education, patients can ensure they are doing their part to optimize health while ensuring that they are getting what they need from the health-care team.

She enjoys teaching general cardiology and clinical cardiology subspecialties, including adult congenital heart disease and pregnancy and heart disease.

Dr Stout earned her M.D. at the University of Arizona. She is board certified in both Adult Congenital Heart Disease and Cardiovascular Disease.
