Care Philosophy

I care for patients who mainly have had kidney transplants, also some liver transplant patients with kidney problems. We work with the surgical transplant team in caring for the patients postoperatively. I'm not a surgeon. I'm an internist by training. So we handle dialysis issues that come up, issues with high blood pressure, electrolyte disorders. There are a lot of mysteries with my patients. And it's almost like being a private investigator to try to get to the root problem. So when you solve the mystery, or you diagnose the problem, there's tremendous satisfaction with that - especially if I feel that I've done something unique in either solving the problem or helping bring the patient back to health again.
