Essentia Health Welcomes Dr. Nicole Worden

Dr. Nicole Worden, Interventioal Cardiologist

Dr. Nicole Worden, an interventional cardiologist, has joined the Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Heart and Vascular Center in Duluth, Minnesota.

“As a young child, I learned that my grandmother had a congenital heart problem that could have been fatal, but when she was 12, a new procedure saved her life,” explains Dr. Worden. “I always knew that I wanted to do something that would have the same kind of positive impact on people’s lives.”

Dr. Worden earned a medical degree from the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, Iowa, where she also completed a residency in internal medicine, and fellowships in cardiovascular disease and interventional cardiology. She is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease.

“One thing I learned from growing up in a small farming community is that communication and taking time to get to know my patients is essential,” says Dr. Worden. “My patient’s stories and goals are important to me, and their heart problems are just one part of the picture. Together, we can come up with a treatment plan that will optimize their heart function and improve the quality of their lives.”

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Worden, call the Heart Center at (218) 786-3443. To see her full profile, visit EssentiaHealth.org and click on “Find a Doctor or Provider.”
