Care Philosophy

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.

Dr. Glanton is an excellent physician. One of the best I've seen in my many years, would gladly recommend him to anyone needing a kidney doctor. Great bedside manner and thorough office visit. Staff was very friendly and professional.

Been seeing him for about 4 years. I find him an excellent Doctor who really takes care of his patients. I highly recommend him.

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.
