Patient Comments (2)
in Libertyville, IL |
He answers questions, is easy to talk with, takes time and doesn't rush the appointment
in Phoenix Arizona |
This man is an excellent Nephrologist. Plain and simple. After being diagnosed with acute renal failure due to a severe allergic reaction to clindamycin. He did everything going he could and finally managed to get me kidneys to bounce back along with my sodium levels. I was quite literally on my death bed when admitted to the hospital and he took great care of me. From a creatinine score of 10.9 on admittance too 3.1 and a sodium level of 102 to 146. He totally changed my disposition.
