Dr. Darwish & his entire staff are awesome!! They treat you like you have value. It is like YOU actually matter, not the money. I moved away & Dr Darwish himself searched to find the best nephrologist for me! He & his girls have gone WAY beyond to help me through this! You may wait a while to get in to see him, but he will spend as much time with you as you need. You will NEVER feel like he is rushing off to see someone else. It is definitely worth the time. Five stars are not enough.

He is a knowledgeable, intelligent, caring, kind, informative, communicative, personable Doctor! He + his staff make you feel as if you're their most important patient! During appointments he never makes you feel rushed, he stays with you until you're Ok w everything! His bedside manner is a rarity in this day + age! 5 STARS IN ALL
