Here are kind words from others
Dr. Thakur is a well respected nephrologist in Seattle. He has an extraordinary ability to make difficult concepts understandable to his patients. He took wonderful care of my husband during his end-stage renal failure (CKD5), so I speak from personal experience. LGromkoMD
