what kind of physician specializes in the treatment of kidney disease?

1 doctor answer
Dr. John Wigneswaran
25 years experience Nephrology and Dialysis
Me:): A kidney specialist is called a Nephrologist. Typically after you finish medical school and three years of internal medicine residency you need to undergo 2-3 years of additional training in kidney disease.
