About

Bio

<ul><li>Hi! I try to be an empathetic listener to patients' trials and travails. I consider myself a part time kidney doctor, and a full time dad. I practice Nephrology (the sub-specialty of medicine dealing with the diagnosis and <i>non-surgical</i> treatment of kidney diseases, dialysis, stones, kidney transplantation, blood pressure management, etc; and no, we are <i>not </i>the same as urologists who specialize in the<i>surgical</i> management of kidney disorders!). I am Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Nephrology Hypertension by the American Board of Medical Specialties. </li></ul> <ul><li>Here is a list of what excites me in nephrology: newer therapies to slow progression of chronic kidney disease, treatment of resistant hypertension, kidney stone management, home dialysis modalities, and kidney transplantation. I have written a few articles, and a book chapter on the aspects of kidney disease that I have a special interest in. I enjoy teaching and speaking on kidney diseases to medical students, physicians, and the community. In my "spare time" (an oxymoron!), I dream about hiking in to Alaska like Chris McCandless , but my wife makes sure that I restrict myself to local trail running for the time being. </li></ul> <ul><li>I see patients in consultation at my offices in Bradenton and Lakewood Ranch . Should you be interested in scheduling an appointment, please call our office at 941-753-1035. For more info, please go to www.kidneydoctorbradenton.org </li></ul>
