I have been seeing Dr. Betts for over a dozen years and have complete trust in her competency, professionalism, and " bedside" manner. She has been seeing me since I was a stage 1 (Polycystic) Kidney Disease patient, through stage 5, and now is my post kidney transplant Nephrologist. Never once have I doubted her judgement and in following her prescribed treatments I feel I was, and am now, as healthy as probably any kidney patient could/can be!I She is very caring, pleasant, & a good listener!

My experience when I saw Dr. Betts was very good, it was to the point and her referral to a hematologist was dead on. She's great! The only issues I found were 1) scheduling as it took 2 weeks to get an appointment in a case that was evidently a rather big emergency and 2) her nurse seems to be having a bad day on the phone, never in my life have I been talked to by a nurse so aggressively or rudely. When people are sick a little compassion helps. Outside of those items she's a doctor I'd refer.

I have been a patient of Dr. Betts for many years. She combines her deep compassionate nature as well as her astounding knowledge of nephrology both of which put me at ease. She spends time talking to me, as well as listening to what I have to tell her and looks at all problems from many angles. You couldn't ask for a more intelligent, caring nephrologist or doctor, period.
