Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Brathwaite "We like what we do and truly strive to make a difference.  Kidney disease is often difficult and many people feel overwhelmed.  We work to clarify this; "lets figure out what's going on the manage it"  Our relationship is more of a coach and cheerleaders.  The patient is the focus and we are there to support in whatever form that takes.  Much of the time this is focus on the individual, however, we never lose sight of our community and are active in its support.  Many of our patients see Southwest Atlanta Nephrology as a second home and we pleased to be thought of in that way.  Welcome to our home."

Patient Comments (1)

in Denmarkl, SC
Dr. Brathwaite has been my doctor for years. He has brought me from almost needed dialysis to a manageable life. He is thorough, professional, and takes his time with every patient. He has my blood and urine work done while I'm there. He will fax and confer with my other doctors when requested....more
