Anna Huger, MD
With over 20 years of experience in private practice, Dr. Anna Huger could not be more excited to join the team at Washington University Physicians.
Born and raised in St. Louis, MO., Dr. Huger graduated from Villa Duchesne before moving on to Georgetown University. After graduating from Georgetown, she attended medical school at the University of Missouri before completing her pediatric residency at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.
Following this, she joined Mercy and established a pediatric practice that she would continue to grow for the next 20 years. Dr. Huger’s focus on building caring relationships with her patients and their families, and really taking her time with each visit, resulted in her being honored with the Five Star Excellence Award for scoring in the top 10% nationally for patient satisfaction. Even more of an honor has been her growing list of second-generation patients. Many of the patients whom she began seeing 20 years ago have become parents themselves, and have asked Dr. Huger to care for their newborns. As a pediatrician, there is really no greater honor than that.
Dr. Huger’s move to Washington University Physicians is the realization of a longtime dream to create a beautiful, nurturing environment for her patients and their families. When you walk into Purely Pediatrics, you’ll be greeted by fresh flowers, vibrant colors, wonderful music and smiling faces. It does not look or feel like a doctor’s office…and that was the whole point.
Additionally, by locating her new office in the state-of-the-art Children’s Specialty Care Center, she is now able to make referrals to a range of the best pediatric specialists in the country, all located right in the same building. Her patients absolutely love it. Whether she is performing a well-check or helping a patient, and their parents, to develop a plan for effectively managing a chronic health issue, Dr. Huger brings warmth, understanding and over 20 years of general pediatrics expertise to each one of her families.
Being a mother of twins herself, Dr. Huger has a deep understanding of the demands that raising twins can present. From getting new parents ready to welcome more than one baby, to preparing them for what they can expect in those first few exciting months and beyond, Dr. Huger brings a uniquely personal perspective to her families that have been blessed with multiples.
Dr. Huger lives in Webster Groves with her husband Paul and their twin boys Edward and George. Outside of the office, she can be found chasing her two boys (and two puppies), travelling with her family and spending weekends at the family farm in St. Alban’s, MO. She also is a lover of children’s literature and maintains a constantly growing collection of children’s books. In fact, you can generally find the latest Newberry Award Winners, or other classic children’s books, on her bedside table. Whatever your child’s interests and reading level, chances are that Dr. Huger will have a wonderful reading recommendation.
She is currently accepting new patients.
