I wish there were more doctors like Dr. Eskander.

Dr Eskandar is one of the finest, most caring, and intelligent doctors in Savannah (I should say the world, but then you would think I'm exaggerating). He takes the time to explain my many complicated medical issues and discusses in detail the pros and cons of my treatment options. His vast knowledge of medicine is definitely not limited to nephrology. I watch him think and it is like the largest search engine of medicine is in action to help you find a way to feel better! Waiting time is short

Excellent Doctor! Provides personal care to each patient in professional manner. Takes time to insure patient and family members questions are answered in a way we can understand the situation completely. One in a million! Need more like him. His PA's are also excellent.
