Kidney care

Kidney care, also known as nephrology, is an important aspect of health and should be monitored properly. Your kidneys manage many body functions and organs, keeping your blood clean and chemically balanced.

He is a wonderful caring individual. He is very through. He is friendly and down to earth in the office. He is always goes over my test results with me at each visit and explains any concerns that he has and makes suggestions on how to make changes. He makes appropriate changes to my medications . I have high blood pressure and he put me on a plan to check my BP 2x a day and to bring them in for review at each visit.
He is always quick to call me at home after hours to inform of important changes to my lab values.
One time I was having foot surgery and my creatine level had been high. So he was called by the hospital. He responded very quickly and provided treatment to address the issue during the surgery. He also provide me with directions on what tests to administer over the next couple of days to evaluate my condition for treatment.
I will continue to work with Dr.

was very thorough and easy to communicate with. She understood my anxiety over my mom's condition and her calm demeanor helped allay any anxiety I had.. She recognized that some of the medication my mom was taking was NOT good for her (had been prescribed by the primary care physician previous to any kidney malfunction) and changed medications to help preserve my mom's kidney function. I like the communication we have with Dr.

and her staff, which eases over concern over mom's condition. Happy to report that while mom's condition has not improved (it cannot), it has stabilized and not gotten any worse. Wish we had gone to Dr.

My husband’s primary care Dr. recommended Dr.

after his lab results showed a poor kidney function. On his first visit to Dr.
Modesto Kidney Diseases Provider Name Locked
she was on time and joked and talked about things other than his health with him to get him to relax. She looked at his labs and said his kidney’s were not in the best of shape, but will try everything in her power to keep him off of dialysis. On her examination of his vitals, she looked up and said she cannot start treatment on his kidneys until he got his heart straightened out. We were not aware of any heart problems at this time. Dr.

promptly made an appointment with a cardiologist and got him an appointment the following week. This was probably June of 2010 and in October of 2010 my husband had open heart surgery replacing a valve and had a double by-pass at the Mass General Hospital. His kidney’s survived the operation, although the function declined and had been holding steady until this last April 2012. April 2012 he had congestive heart failure and Dr.

to any and all who need their kidney’s looked at. Her appointments are for you and when you walk in there is no one else in the waiting room, she is punctual and her associates are friendly and just as caring. You call for a refill and it is ready before you can get to the pharmacy. Great bedside manor, skilled in more than the kidneys and just a joy to visit!

He is superb. It’s very easy to talk to him. He communicates well. He has got great reputation. He is one of the top doctors in his field. I’m comfortable with the approach that he takes. I went to two nephrologists in the past and I was not comfortable. I’m very happy with the course of action he took.

When you first arrive at the office you check in and they check for correct insurance and address information, then you give a urine sample. When you get to the doctor examination room, a nurse will take blood pressure and pulse and go over medication list. There is usually a wait for the doctor but he is dealing with life or death situations, kidney failure is never good. The doctor will check you for swollen ankles or legs,etc., he will ask about any new health issues, he will go over lab results and show you charts of your results, he will also go over medications. I feel I have gotten excellent care from Dr.
