Dr. Befekadu and his associates are very professional and all of them have wonderful bedside manners. Everything about my kidney disease was explained to me, including what to do, what not to do, what to eat, etc. The office staff is professional and friendly. My appointments and tests were scheduled in a timely manner, and the results reviewed with me in detail.
