Jon W. Wahrenberger, MD

Clinical Cardiologist, Cardiovascular Medicine

Jon Wahrenberger, MD

Jon W. Wahrenberger, MD, is a full-time clinical cardiologist at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H) and an Assistant Professor of Medicine for the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. He has served on several regional affiliate Boards of the American Heart Association (AHA), was President of the Northeast Affiliate, and Co-President of the Founder's Affiliate of the AHA. He has long overseen several educational conferences, including the annual Cardiovascular Disease Update Symposium for regional physicians held each December, and a "Get Heart Smart" symposium each February.

Dr. Wahrenberger grew up in Tenafly, New Jersey, was the fourth of five children, and son of a general surgeon. He initially fought the temptation to follow in his father's footsteps by attending college at the University of Montana, majoring in microbiology, and he later did post-baccalaureate studies at Columbia and attended medical school at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia. He completed the remainder of his medical training at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, including Internal Medicine residency, a medicine fellowship and both a general and interventional cardiology fellowship. His professional interests include general/consultative cardiology and high-altitude medicine. He has long been an advocate for tools to promote physician productivity. He was a member of the informatics team over several years before and after Epic Go-Live, served on the Departmental Systems Committee at D-H, and has been a long-time champion of speech recognition software at D-H.

Dr. Wahrenberger lives in Hanover with his wife, Karen and their children. Although an instrument rated pilot, he gave up his "wings" a few years ago to pursue ground-based passions for woodworking and furniture-making. He has long enjoyed an interest in performing magic (still doing an occasional birthday party or holiday show), and is working on a book tentatively titled The Aging Man's Guide to Growing Old, which is intended to be a "scientifically accurate and entertaining take on aging."
