      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Brathwaite's Care Philosophy

      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.
