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."

I have a host of medical diagnoses as well as CKD. While I have many lab results to follow, I feel that he treats me as an individual not as a lab report.

Horrible waste of time to see this physician. Save your life and save your money. Go to someone else.

This patient refused to pay a co-pay for an initial visit and then asked that I order lab tests when I had not previously evaluated her which is not legal nor allowed with any insurance. When my staff informed her that I could not do this, she and her spouse became upset and left. We offered to have her see my partner which her spouse refused to do hanging up on my MA. She has never met me nor has she established a doctor-patient relationship with me so she cannot evaluate my competence.
