Dr. Rowder Says:

My staff is very attentive in working with patients to get them scheduled.  However, I have a request that patients have recent labs (at least within the last 6-12 months) to give me a sense of their degree of kidney function.  You do not necessarily have to have a referral to be seen in my clinic, but I do need recent labs reflecting your renal function.   I believe this is a reasonable request so that I may treat
