About

Bio

I grew up in Aachen, Germany where I went to high school and medical school at RWTH Aachen. I graduated with honors and an MD degree and pursued my post-graduate training at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center from 2002 to 2008. I worked then as a nephrologist at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Martinsburg, WV from 08/2008 to 12/2012 serving the heroes of this country. In 02/2012, I decided to start my practice in Martinsburg to be able to serve the people of the West Virginia Eastern Panhandle as well. Due to a great need, I opened a satellite office in Winchester, VA. I am married and have twins. I spend my free time with family and friends, but am always available for my patients on my personal cell phone.

Dr. Babak Barmar
Specializes in Nephrology and Dialysis
Yes: Absolutely. After a kidney transplant which is a major surgery patients usually stay in the hospital for a minimum of 3 to 4 days, both to recover from the surgery and to put them on the right dose and regimen of immunosuppressants (anti-rejection drugs).
