About Natalie J Bracewell

My name is Natalie Bracewell, MD, and I am a clinical assistant professor in the division of cardiovascular medicine. My journey to become a physician started in high school because I enjoyed learning about science and wanted to help people with that knowledge. I chose cardiology because I like cardiovascular physiology and believe there is a large “toolbox” of treatment options for patients at our disposal.

I earned my medical degree from the University of Missouri School of Medicine and completed my residency in internal medicine at the University of Florida, during which I was the chief resident. I then stayed at UF for my cardiovascular training. My goal as a cardiologist is to help patients manage their heart health in the best way possible that enables them to enjoy quality of life. I have expertise in the following areas: cardiac rehabilitation, coronary artery disease, general cardiology, lipid management and preventive cardiology.

I love spending time with my family. My husband, two boys and I enjoy being outdoors, hiking and going to the beach, and traveling.
