    I am forever grateful to Dr. Bashir and his wonderful staff. I had been having weeks of critical spikes in my blood pressure and Dr. Bashir agreed to see me even though his schedule was maxed out. His first instinct of my problem was right on and since then his treatment has stopped the spikes completely. I am feeling so much better and am so appreciative. Thank you, Dr. Bashir. I highly recommend this stellar physician.

    Entering into a new world of kidney disease can be daunting and scary. Two things that have helped me is to educate myself in everything about the kidneys and finding that exceptional Doctor. For me, it was and is Dr. Abid Bashir. He is extremely intelligent, thorough, and takes time and care with his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Bashir and feel very fortunate to have him as my nephrologist.
