Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Glanton "As a nephrologist, I believe that early and aggressive management of kidney disease and hypertension along with patient education is the best way to prepare patients to live health lives with kidney disease and end stage renal failure. Appropriate preparation so that patients can make the best decision possible will allow patients the best opportunity to do well. I believe in a team approach in which the patients have an active role in their health care will offer the best outcomes."
