The Expertise to Diagnose and Treat Kidney Disease
The kidney plays an important role in keeping your body healthy. Nephrology is an area of medicine that focuses on diseases of the kidney. An estimated one in eight adults are at risk for kidney disease. At the early stages of kidney disease, you may experience no symptoms. Kidney disease is often not diagnosed until it reaches more advanced stages. You are at risk if you have:
- Family history of kidney failure or dialysis
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
Testing for a kidney disease
A blood test and urine test can help determine if you have kidney disease. Like any disease, kidney disease can be treated if detected early. Our team will work with you to determine a rapid diagnosis and begin a personalized treatment plan.
