I have known Dr Eftekhari since 2014 and he saved my kidney at Broward health when i was very sick with Liver failure. I follow in his office. He helped keep me healthy and worked with my liver team and other hospital doctors to save my life.

Dr Eftekhari helped saved my kidney at Broward Health years ago and has followed me closely ever since. He always communicates with my doctors, always speaks to me in a kind manner and really cares about protecting my kidney. I trust him every time, and he has shown to me he cares and will go the extra step to keep my kidneys healthy as possible.

I really trust Dr. Eftekhari because he said, he wouldn’t let me get into dialysis as he would care for me like he does his Mother. And I asked how he likes his Mother and he smiled big and said, a lot. So I know he is a super caring Nephrologist. But it’s not all about what doctors can do for us. We also have to do our part and do what’s good for us, like eat according to your lab work and not leave it ALL up to the doctors. I brought my eGFR up from 43 to now 81 and I’m 83 years old & cook everything by myself. It’s not easy but I’m managing so far. Have a great day & smile and be positive it’s later than you think??????
