Dr. Kees-Folts is extremely thorough in her assessment and treatment plan. She is calm and takes the time to explain everything in detail and answers all questions until she is certain that you understand. Without a doubt, she saved my sons life after he was diagnosed with FSGS at the age of 16. He is now 25 and happily married with fully functioning kidneys.
