Dr. Amber Sanchez, MD
Amber Sanchez, MD, is a board-certified nephrologist and associate medical director of the apheresis program at UC San Diego Health. She treats patients for a variety of kidney-related conditions and performs apheresis, a medical procedure that involves passing a person's blood through a device that separates out a component of the blood from its other parts and returns the remainder of the blood into circulation. Dr. Sanchez enjoys practicing nephrology as the kidneys are important in the regulation of many key functions of the body, including blood pressure, anemia, vitamin D regulation and electrolyte control. Her approach to care emphasizes personalized treatment plans for each patient, and she also enjoys dedicating time during her visits to educate individuals about their particular diagnosis. As an assistant professor in the Department of Medicine, she trains medical students, residents and fellows at UC San Diego School of Medicine. Dr. Sanchez completed her fellowship and residency at UC San Diego School of Medicine and earned her medical degree from the University of Texas, Houston Health Science Center. She is board-certified in internal medicine and nephrology.
