I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Albers as my kidney doctor. He is very knowledgeable and he explains everything in great detail in a way that is easy to understand. I am 56 years old and a diabetic. Of all the doctors I have seen in my lifetime I would rate Dr. Albers among the very best. I highly recommend him.
