Patient Comments (2)
in Oklahoma City, OK |
So I was freaked out when I ended up in the ER and Dx with renal insufficiency. Did my research and selected Dr. Merveldt. 5 minutes in to my first visit I knew I was in good hands. She had reviewed my medical records, listened to my concerns and made her treatment recommendations. For me the best course of action was lifestyle changes. She provided the information I needed and left feeling really good. At my 3 month follow up my kidney function had stabilized and improved. She is a great Dr.

I believe that if a Nephrology Physician is responsible for the monitoring of Diabetes then that doctor should also be willing and capable of prescribing proper medications to control those conditions.. Dr Merveldt refused to renew medications for my type 2 diabetes and rather pass me off to a family physician or endochronologist who I was told that a nephrologist should be monitoring my medications. Don't go to this doctor. I'm just saying.
Mr. Davis, I'm sorry you are upset that I recommended you see a PCP or endocrinologist to manage your diabetic medications. I want what is best for my patients. Those patients whom I see infrequently I do not feel I can monitor their diabetes as closely as a PCP would be able to. I never want to provide my patients with less than optimal care, hence my recommendation to you. I hope you are doing well and have found a nephrologist who meets your needs better.
