Kristin Nierenberg, MD
I grew up in a small town in New Hampshire and went to Boston for my college and medical school training at Tufts and Harvard universities. I moved to Seattle for residency training and I love the medical culture and lifestyle of the Pacific Northwest. I have a wonderful husband, Andrew, and we have one very energetic and feisty baby boy named Remy, and a loveable rescue mutt named Brady.
About My Practice: I enjoy being part of a team that works together helping patients achieve their health goals. I feel Kaiser Permanente provides an environment that understands the many complex elements that contribute to our patients' health, including family, societal, emotional, and physical factors. I strive to help patients understand their own health and I also want my patients to feel cared for and listened to. I love caring for patients and their families and forming lasting relationships with them throughout their lives.
How I Thrive: I'll do anything that gets me outside. This used to be backpacking trips and triathlons, but more recently it's chasing my son around--trust me, it's just as exhausting! I try to exercise every day and I take time every night to reflect on things that I'm grateful for. I love being with family and watching my little boy discover new things every day.
