Dr. Wei is a very good doctor. Dr. Wei spends a lot of time with me when I go see her.
in New York, NY |
She spends more time with me than any other doctor. She takes her time to explain everything to me and makes sure I understand why she is doing what she is doing. I had other doctors that didn't listen to me, and ignored my problems, but not her. If there is any question, she picks up the phone and calls the pharmacy or other doctors so everyone is on the same page. Dr. Wei is my favorite doctor!

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Wei's Care Philosophy

Dr. Wei is a board certified Nephrologist who cares for people with Hypertension, Kidney diseases, or Electrolyte abnormalities. She has worked in the Harlem community for over ten years and understands the challenges that patients and physicians from this community must face.  Patients and their families are encouraged to participate in their care by being treated with dignity, compassion and respect by Dr. Wei as well as her office staff.  Dr. Wei takes the time to explain diagnoses and treatment options in a manner that patients can understand.  It is important to us that our patients feel cared for in addition to receiving the best of care. 

The focus of her practice is to preserve kidney function while achieving the patients quality of life goals.  If kidney disease becomes severe and irreversible, she can offer Peritoneal Dialysis (bloodless dialysis at home) or Hemodialysis as a bridge to Transplantation, or comfort care if suitable.  Dr. Wei will communicate with other providers to coordinate care for optimal outcomes. 

Welcome to our practice!
